When i play video from my browser my tablet usualy shutdown for no reason.
I was kindy hoping this is known issue that many are having or maybe some tweaks to fix this.
If never had my tablet shutdown in any other circumstances only if i had browser open.

Also is this tablet supose to be 1.4 ghz or 1.3 ghz because mine apearntly is 1.4 ghz stock while see many advertise this tablet at 1.3 ghz speeds.

Hi mate,

Ues, it's a known issue - the default browser is very buggy which is why I've installed Chrome and disabled the stock browser.

The device has a Tegra 3 CPU which actually has '5' cores. 1 clocked at 1.3ghz when you're web browsing, listening to music and 4 other cores clocked at 1.4ghz for when your playing intensive games like GTA Vice City or Modern Combat.

Most other Tegra devices are only clocked at 1.3ghz which is why the Xperia Tab has a bit of a umph on benchmarks.

Sony's Xperia Tablet S family uses Nvidia's Tegra 3 SoC which has an integral CPU rated 1.4 GHz maximum for single-core operation and 1.3 GHz maximum for multi-core operation. So the GHz rating you read depends on whether the advertiser is stating the CPU's single-core or multi-core rating.

I cannot provide any feedback on the stock browser used on the Xperia Tablet S tablet because I do not own one; I own Sony Tablet S tablets.

How do you disable and re enable ?

I use chrome but i have default browser still enabled.

Ofc using chrome does't change thing it can still shutdown like least once a day.

browser was slow untill today when aplied some tweaks that if found here.

Anyway you think this tablet gonna be perfectly stable with next update or in future ?

If you happen to life nearby in Netherlands, Enschede you can come try out.

I can find my tablet back anyway using anti theft :P

My tablet has the same problem. I'm hoping it's only a firmware issue that can be resolved with an update in the future.

I did a factory reset today, see if that fixes anything. If not, I might take it a service centre for repair. The way the video and sound corrupts before it powers off makes me suspect a faulty CPU or motherboard...

Go into Settings -> Apps -> All
Then scroll all the way to the bottom, all of the disabled apps are at the bottom. Tap 'Browser' and enable.

Does your tablet also have the crash/power off problem in the Youtube App? Mine has. And it also had it a few times when playing a movie in MX Player. But never in games. Games never make it power off, not even heavy games such as GTA Vice City.

I also am experiencing crashes with the Youtube app...

First venture into the tablet market and now i'm doing my best to thwart off buyers remorse.

Sony, wtf?
