Even here the last Android , 8.1 megapixel main camera with support for Full HD – video and many other interesting “things”! All this and will be discussed further.
Packaging and delivery – Sony Xperia Z2
The user will receive Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet in a box large enough, made of durable cardboard. Design it is not re-created, and “migrated” here from other packages of products of the Japanese manufacturer: white cardboard on top of which a few illustrations apparatus, including in different body colors, as well as the footnotes, “prompting” of some of the capabilities of the device.
After opening the box, except, of course, of the tablet, the user will see here charger adapter cable micro- USB / USB, wired headset with answer button and built-in microphone on the body, plus the necessary documentation.
Materials and build quality housing – Sony Xperia Z2
Appearance Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet formed from several types of materials: the rear panel and partially “marginalia” used matte plastic black or white, the opposite of the glass, and on the perimeter realized metal inserts. This “arrangement”, although it does not look new, however, and it can not be called hackneyed.
To build quality carp will not work – no backlash, albeit slight, at the junction of there, and the material used does not flex or creaks. It looks particularly interesting against the background of a very small thickness of the shell.
Pleasing to the hand appeared and weight. I do not know how anyone, but personally I would add him to the manufacturer plus in karma – running time “suspended” – the problem is quite feasible.
It should also be noted and security enclosure according to IP55 / 58, that is, from water and dust.
Ergonomics functional elements – Sony Xperia Z2
Front panel “split” between the large display, three classic buttons, eyelet front 2.2 megapixel camera, two miniature pin speaker, light sensor, plus an indicator alerts. The latter can involve either disable the submenu “Display” all in one touch.
The opposite of remarkable conclusion basic 8.1 megapixel camera, get slim trim “under the metal”, plus a few logos.
Further, if the user will examine ergonomics functional elements of the device, expanding it so that the eye of the front camera was placed on top, on the left edge, he “faced” metal rocker volume control, as well as the on / off the power of the tablet.
At the opposite end of any functional element is not provided.
Lower bound is obtained by a classical audio output, plus a special slot for the device in the docking station.
However, the most “rich” in terms of functional elements proved the upper end Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. Here for two thick rubberized caps “hidden” Port Micro-USB, as well as slots for SIM-card and card MicroSD , plus output built-in microphone and an infrared window. Why the latter, see below.

Tablet was a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. At the heart of IPS matrix capable of providing luxury angles to either side with a maximum deviation of colors.
During the work in contact with the sun panel defined ‘extinction’ of the displayed data is taking place. But to call it as an essential, I can not – the information is still quite good viewing.
The sensitivity of the claims does not cause – support touch control with 10 fingers simultaneously.
The display is covered with a protective glass. Manufacturer does not specify that for the material used. Nevertheless, my traditional test – friction on the panel with a coin, was not enough to even formed on the surface of a small mark.

Despite the fact that the reporting unit supports classic phone calls, the earpiece is not here. However, nothing like this is a terrible person, I do not see this, and hardly any of users will make calls, putting the device to the ear with dimensions 172h266 mm. For the latter is provided by the already mentioned headset features which is enough for comfortable intercourse.
Integrated handsfree speaker placed on the front panel of the case, which in itself is very good, because the sound is directed to the user, and does not dissipate, as if they were located at the rear.
The power and purity I liked – in the indoor environment comfortable to watch videos, play, talk on Skype and more. Distortion was observed.
The settings also a lot of fun. For example, the sub-item “Sound Effects” combined “improvers» ClearAudio + – automatic optimization of parameters of the sound; EQ, as well as “Dynamic Normalizer”. Last automatically “smooths” the volume of songs or videos.
Another item “audio enhancements” allows you to select the input / output connections and the submenu “Audio Hi-Res via USB» – play high-quality audio using a USB DAC / amplifier DAC.
