2. Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

In second place... the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet, and to be honest it pushed the Galaxy Tab S all the way to the finish, but it was just piped at the post.

If you haven't realised yet, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is a really good Android tablet, with a slim build and waterproof design ensuring it'll survive a trip into the bath or a bake off in a really messy kitchen.

The screen isn't quite as good as the Galaxy Tab S, nor is there a smaller version available for those who don't want to lug around a 10.1-inch offering every day - but these are minor points in what is still a very good device.

Quick verdict

A solid, lightweight slate with a decent amount of power the Xperia Z2 Tablet won't disappoint and the waterproof chassis is certainly a bonus.

The design is slightly more attractive than Samsung's, but with just one screen size and a display which lacks the vibrancy of its closest rival it takes second spot.
