Thanks! It looks awesome!
If you wanted to do an addendum, is the 3-4 days an expected, or a real-life experience? How does battery life hold up to the expected life when you're doing email, videos, games, etc?

Thanks!


I'm really hurting that the latest news I'm seeing is that it will not be released at all in the USA.

Battery life is my only "concern" as it is noticeably lower than my iPad. That being said, you can still get 2-3 days of standard usage but I think standby battery performance needs to be better. Hopefully Sony will work on it with the firmware that is released.

iPad Air has 8.827 mAh battery vs 6000mAh from z2 tablet, i don't think a firmware update will help alot.

Pencil input?
Hi can you kindly check if the tablet recognize a pencil as input? like how it is possible with the Xperia Z Ultra.
Apparently XperiaBlog is claiming that both Z2 and Tablet Z2 have the same high sensitivity screen as the Ultra and can register input from gloves and styluses/pencils.
Thanks!

I have my device on charge each night, so long as it lasts a day then ... more is not necessary for me

Regarding standby battery performance most probably is the same as ever: Out of the box it will be rather bad because too many background services and useless Sony apps are active. Deactivate the Sony BS, let only the really necessary background apps run - standby battery usage will be excellent.

So with LTE on, battery drain is a lot quicker than with Wi-Fi.

Yes, could you see if it has the same input technology as the Z Ultra please?

i.e, pens, pencils, knifes, forks etc etc
