Some customer reviews of Sony Tablet S 16GB

Most helpful reviews

Stuart , Leicester Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I love the ease of use and comfort in use due to the wedge design. It fits and is easy to hold in both portrait and landscape.
I have seen some reviews where the quality has been slated but my 2 year old has been useing the tablet a lot since I got it and it has been dropped, bashed and crashed a lot. Her finger momenents are not very gentle but so far there are absolutly no issues, scratches or otherwise. I assure anyone that if it stands up to my daughter you cannot say anything bad about quality.
There are plenty of apps for all uses and I have found everything that I need for both business and pleasure.
I love the extra little apps such as the remote control which I have found to work very well on all of my home appliances, far better than the remote commander that I used to have,
Bad points:
Battery life could do with improving.
Would like an office suite as standard

darren, Leicester Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Superb black levels on screen. Great design. Very responsive even when multi tasking. Standard sd card slot. Excellent sound through headphones and speakers. Plays hd videos very well.
Bad points:
Poor software update support. The adapter plug that attaches to the tablet is big and clunky and poorly conceived. No charging. Via usb. The plastic casing and trim feels a bit creaky and flimsy.
