Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact review

Love this tablet!

It’s worth the extra money if you want the premium features.

From the audio quality, to robust build quality, very light weight and awesome display.

All these features add up a versatile companion, be it a learning companion (it makes an fantastic e-reader), entertainment companion (very light with a crisp, bright screen) or commuting companion (Digital Noise Cancellation blocks out external traffic noise) it just seems to tick an awful lot of boxes.

It turns a few heads too. It has a great design language, especially in white.

I’ve had mine for a few months now and the build quality is top notch – it still looks as good as when I took it out of its box, which is good for it’s resale value should I ever choose to part with it.

Recommended, wholeheartedly.”

Impossibly light. Totally portable.

The Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact redefines portability. It’s lighter than a book, as slim as a magazine, and slips easily into a handbag. The most advanced Sony technologies were used to create a compact tablet that’s also incredibly powerful. So while it’s small on bulk, it’s big on performance.
