Is the Tablet Z still worth getting? Or is Nexus 10 Better?

Tip us?

And how's stock UI is better than Sony's? I mean, something (Small Apps) is better than nothing, I guess... Genuinely, what's your opinion on that?

Not really true. I do custom roms to get the best out of my tablet but there is nothing wrong with sony firmware. Works fine.

Err, my opinion based upon lots of different experiences. The tab z is great. The z phone is/was better. I felt it snappier and more able. This sgp321 is not as quick as the phone. Or as the n7 (2012), but I can forgive this with a bigger screen.
Yeah, it works, but it could better... Long term, i think the N10 has more to offer... For tabz apologists ( and I own a 321) answer one question: where's the huge, expansive, ingenious development?
Either way, choose for yourself... If I was you I'd read more about what you want. Good luck, both are great devices.

I don't mind the lack of development. There aren't lots of ROMS, but I don't mind, I'm happy with stock + Xposed. Maybe in a year or so I might install a custom ROM, but for now, I'm okay. The point is: it is fast enough for MY media and Internet geral usage.

And the Nexus 10 has an already old processor. I bet it won't go past 4.4. But, well, as you said, it's a matter of opinion. I still think the XTZ is a better purchase than the N10
