  • - The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet has all the style, power and stunning screen quality necessary to make it a true iPad Air 2 rival.
    - Battery drain is particularly bad when using the camera.
    - The trackpad is tiny, too, and therefore unpleasant to use.
    - All in all, it’s an outstanding display that’s ideal for watching high-quality movies and playing complex games.


  • Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet is a fantastic Android device lumbered with a pointless keyboard dock. If you can pick one up alone, it might be the perfect tablet for you, but it's too expensive to recommend with the dock included.


  • The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is a seriously impressive device and easily one of the best tablets we've ever tested. The design is astonishingly thin and light and the waterproofing with only the need for one cover is a bonus. This topped with excellent hardware, performance and software means we can barely fault it. However, the fact Sony bundles it with the Bluetooth keyboard with no option to buy it alone means that it's more expensive than rivals. We feel it's a 9/10 products but we've no choice but to mark the value score lower.


  • The iPad Air 2 balances seamless ease of use, app abundance, and raw power in its ever-so-slender frame, continuing Apple's reign atop the tablet heap.


  • I don't throw the word "perfect" around lightly -- actually, I never use it -- but the iPad Air 2 truly is the perfect tablet. It boasts the ultimate combination of form and function, thanks to its even-thinner design and more-dazzling display, as well as its faster A8X processor and sharper 8-MP camera. What truly sets the iPad apart is its roster of unbeatable apps and the way this tablet interacts seamlessly with the iPhone and Macs, thanks to iOS 8 features such as Handoff.


  • The iPad Air 2 is another triumph for Apple. The design and screen have improved in all the right ways, and the new A8X processor is nothing short of astonishing. This is still the best large tablet around.
    Best Android Tablets Round-up


  • The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is the best Android-powered media tablet available, but its competition is stiff.


  • Whether you like to watch a lot of video on your tablet or you enjoy looking through everyone's Facebook photos, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 gives you a pretty awesome canvas in a very slim and light design. The Super AMOLED screen boasts richer colors, a higher resolution and better viewing angles than the iPad Air. Not everyone will love the oversaturated hues, but there's no denying that this is a gorgeous panel.


  • If that’s what you want, go buy it.


  • The iPad Air is Apple's attempt to make the tablet disappear. The result is an unusually slim, well-built platform for the best array of apps in the business.


  • The iPad Air's jaw-droppingly compact design, faster performance and excellent endurance -- combined with the best app selection -- make this the tablet to beat.


  • The iPad Air is the best overall 10-inch tablet you can buy by quite a margin. The huge weight reduction makes the larger of the two iPads a far more attractive option again, while retaining all the iPads traditional strengths such as its unrivalled collection of tablet optimised apps. A revolution it isn't, but we find it very hard to see how Apple can top this version now.


  • - Having stereo sound is good for games and films, but the sound is a little thin, and gets harsh at top volume.
    - Its internal speakers are a little disappointing, though.
    - Sharpness is great, but not flawless.
    - So the look is very suspect, but the Tab Pro 10.1’s back is nice and grippy making it easy to get a firm hold on the tablet.


  • With the massive Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 and diminutive Tab Pro 8.4, this 10.1-inch slate is the most socially acceptable, narrowly avoiding the title of awkward middle child with its impressive screen and powerful insides.


  • Of all the "Pro" Samsung tablets, the Galaxy TabPro 10.1 is among our favourites. It's just the right scale, is slim and light, yet packs plenty of power in too. Such a pro specification does mean a "pro" price tag though: £449 to be precise. Given that faux leather build we're not convinced the build quite matches the price. It's also worth noting that for just £1 more you can pick up the Note 10.1, complete with its integrated built-in S Pen stylus, from the official Samsung site.
