Whilst the Apple iPad and Samsung’s latest tablet offerings deliver some pretty extravagant processing power and impressive visuals, the advanced features come at a fairly steep price point.

And although the Sony Xperia Z4 has been with us for a while, it still represents a serious value for money for anyone who’s seeking a good media player and multitasking device for a competitive price.

First impressions reveal the Sony Xperia Z4 to be a slimline device that is just 6.1mm thick and feels light enough to carry around without undue strain. And whilst the Apple iPad Air 2’s brushed metal exterior might offer just a touch more luxury, the polycarbonate casing of the Xperia Z4 manages to feel durable without being bulky.

Upon turning on the Xperia Z4, the 10-inch display really leapt to life with the 2K visuals looking bold and crisp at a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1600. And with videos being played in a slightly more sharp manner than the iPad Air 2, it represents a significant step-up for the brand in this competitive market.

But it’s in terms of how the device performs in the gaming world that’s of the greatest interest. We already showed how the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet performed against the iPad Air, and so it was a real pleasure to find that the Z4 kept up the brand’s reputation for solid gaming performance.

One of the biggest features is undoubtedly the way that the device is able to use the PS4 remote play feature so that you can play endless rounds of Overwatch with a whole new level of convenience.

And the mobile casino games found at Lucky Nugget also proved to be very responsive much in due to layout design where one can sign up to see more slots and that it easily keeps up with the frantic slots action, plus the waterproofed features should mean that even the sweatiest hands won’t make the display too grimy!

But it’s the improved battery life that could prove to be the Xperia Z4’s biggest selling point as it is able to provide over seventeen hours of continuous video playback without requiring charging, which will definitely be a hit for anyone who’s looking to head out on a long-distance Pok√©mon Go mission.

Although there are a few minor gripes about the way that the user interface sometimes feels like it could have been made a touch more intuitive, it still represents a bold effort from Sony in their bid to give us a lightweight and powerful way to play the latest and greatest games!
