The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet may finally be a slate from Sony that will gain a decent market share, after a few tablets that didn’t impress from this company. The folks of GSMArena took the device for a spin, tested its battery and were pretty impressed.


Keep in mind that such a thin model, at 6.4 mm in thickness wasn’t expected to have much of a battery. In fact, it comes with a 6000 mAh unit, that’s supposed to juice up both a Snapdragon 801 CPU and a 10.1 inch Full HD screen (1920 x 1200 pixels). The device scored 12 hours and 53 minutes of web browsing in the test, beating the likes of Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, its main rival on the Android market.

It also beats the iPad Air, which is a very impressive feat. In the video playback test, the score was good, not great, with 11 hours and 46 minutes, which is pretty high, but below the iPad Air. It’s also lower than the incredibly resilient LG G Flex and Nokia Lumia 1520 for example. Still, with a slim waistline, we weren’t expecting results so good.
