Usman Tariq says:

Who is this guy? Where is he now? Why don’t he review other techs?
This is hands down the best review I’ve seen so far.
Everything was so detailed and he knows what he’s talking about.
Awesome review!

rocky roxstar says:

Sadly Today i returned mine.. Its great in specs great stereo sound great in gaming except poor cameras . Only but its very weak built extremely poor camera. After a week use of gaming playing Modern Combat 5 & nfs No limits the screen started to loose up.. Its hard to explain i mean to say when i press the screen it started tuc tuc sound .. Which was coming out from underneath the screen.. Its a very fragile device..
( one more important advice for all of you there r 2 version of this tablets wifi & Lte version.. Sp611Model is without sim card its a wifi version .. Whereas model no sp621 is LTE version in which u can use Nano sim .. Hope its helpful for u guys )

Suchet B says:

what an awesome review – I may get this now as I am a massive playstation fan and have all the gaming devices – i’m disappointed with the camera but the other features make up for it.

Dr. Furter says:

Thing is SONY’s products are too expensive. That’s why Samsung and Lenovo are are getting more buyers.

Mohammad Hudzaifah Nordin says:

Craig Davies says:

had this because I love my Z3 phone which I had day one. I really don’t care about the camera as I don’t intend on using it for that as I have the phone. I had mine for £230 new. which is a bargain now.

khurram41 says:

Very good review. I checked other reviews of this tablet but this one is much better. Is it me or someone else noticed he didn’t mention LDAC music profile in this tablet, i guess this tablet has that (that’s high definition music…)

Niffs Z says:

Great guy. New? First time I have seen him… If I can forgive him for saying “jarring” in a proffessionally conducted review, I must see this is the best review of this length I have ever seen and maybe the best reviewer. It’s a great tablet (it seems) and if I was ever to buy a tablet of this category I wouldn’t have a difficult job. Thank you! I can’t wait to see Ash again.
