Question

Tablet Speeds Shield K1 vs Xperia Z4

Which is faster and which is better for my needs: The Nvidia Shield K1 or the Sony Xperia Z4 tablet?

I'll mostly be using this tablet for reading apps, surfing the web, watching Netflix and YouTube, downloading things like PDF files, and playing games that have very minor requirements (think Angry Birds). Graphics aren't a major concern. My top concerns for a tablet are:

1. Speed: Concerning loading the above said items, no lagging while using them, navigating through menus quickly, etc.
2. Good battery life.
3. Value for the money invested.

I know the K1 has 2.2GHz, and the Z4 only has 2GHz, but the Z4 also has an extra 1GB of RAM over the Z4, as well as the octacore. How do all of these features affect the speed and performance of the requirements I listed above?

You won't tell by "specs."

While a beginner would thing GHz matters, it was learned long ago it's not how you choose.

Go get reviews on both.

no way to answer

it is all about what is installed, what is running in the background, your setup etc... your best bet will be to read reviews of both. Between the two, the Xperia z4 is the one I would get.
