Sony Xperia Tablet S

Sony Xperia Tablet S

Sony Xperia Tablet S is a very impressive android tablet, which provides a plethora of features for both multimedia lovers and professional users. Being introduced as an improved version of Sony tablet S which created quite a stir when it was introduced in 2011, Sony Xperia Tablet S comes with upgraded Tegra 3 and updated media ecosystem.


Sony Xperia Tablet S comes with a rolled-back magazine wedge design in a thin slate coloured case. The tablet is splash proof when it uses the multiport cover. It is usable even with wet hands. Weighing around 1.22 pounds, it is quite easy to carry in one hand. The display screen is really huge with 1,280×800-pixel resolution. Quad-coreTegra 3 processor, 1 GB RAM, 8 megapixel camera, Clear Audio + sound enhancing features, everything ensures the phone is worth its $400 price.

On the right side we have the volume controls and the power button. The left side features a headphone jack and a SD card slot. There is a 1 megapixel front camera at the front. There is a multiport input charging port in the bottom edge. The back side is designed with a combination of silver aluminium and black raised part to create the feel of holding a magazine.

Performance of the Sony Xperia Tablet S

The folded magazine design and the excellent the display are its main attractive features. Sony Company is well known for high quality audio. This tablet is no exception. Games and movies come accompanied with perfect theatre quality sound. The tablet is touch responsive and fast. But, the speed of downloads using wi-fi is very limited.

The power button is not very functional. The wi-fi connection drops off frequently. We have to wait endlessly for the wi-fi connection to start automatically. The phone is great for hearing music, watching movies and playing games. But, online games are not very fast. Internet connection speed isn’t consistent always especially when one or more applications are in use.

Special Features

The tablet is capable of acting as a remote to several devices like cable box, stereo sets and Blu-ray players. The IR blaster works quite fine.


  1. Effective design and best display are the main advantages.
  2. Good battery backup and excellent audio are its other salient features. 


  1. The wi-fi connection is very inconsistent
  2. The tablet is splash proof, not water proof
  3. The tablet couples as remote. But, it needs very precise pointing to work.
  4. Sony’s video unlimited features do not work satisfactorily.


Sony released OTA updates to fix most of the issues in the Tablet. The most impressive feature of the tablet is its design. Apart from that all the features of the device can be termed only average. If you want a very stylish tablet to show off amidst your peers and rock the hall with loud music, Sony Xperia Tablet S is a great choice. But, if you are a type of person who gives importance to classic qualities rather than looks, there are many cheaper tablets to serve the purpose.
