Sony Xperia Z4 is a skinny mini 10-inch tablet

It's one of the thinnest, lightest, and fastest Android slate we've seen since, well, the last Sony tablet.

Slim and trim

The Xperia Z4 manages to be even thinner and lighter than last year's model.

Would you like a keyboard with that?

Sony packs an optional Bluetooth keyboard with the tablet.

OK keys

Made of plastic but not fantastic, the Bluetooth keyboard feels cheap and suffers from connectivity issues.

Testy typing

In addition, the small keyboard feels cramped to type on.

Not a netbook

When closed shut like a laptop, the Xperia Z4 almost looks like a netbook. Remember those?

Waterproof to boot

Did I mention the Sony Xperia Z4 is a waterproof tablet? Don't go running for the pool just yet -- the extra durability is meant for accidental spills, not swimming season.

LTE? Yes, please.

A 10-inch tablet with LTE connectivity is rare, especially one with such high-end specs and au courant design.

Stunning 2K screen

The beautiful 2K screen on the Sony tablet is one of the best. With a wide color range, colors appear impressively lifelike, whereas HD content looks sharper than real life.

Cool camera features

The 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras aren't worth busting out at a party, however the apps in the native camera apps are. The apps, settings and features range from practical to wacky, but they're all fun to explore.
