Found 9th Aug 2015
Bought this on Thursday, arrived on Friday with the £4.99 P&P
(My Nexus 7 2013 cracked so bought this)

So you get the Sony Xperia Z 10.1" 4G Tablet (SGP321) which, to be honest is damn good! Takes quite a while to charge (few hours!) but has good battery life.
Good performance compared to the old Nexus 7 I had!

So you get:
The Tablet
Sony usb plug and micro usb cable
Huawei Bluetooth Speaker (actually quite decent sound, also 3.5mm cable and micro usb cable)
a car charger (just a usb end 12v cig one, with another micro usb cable)
Cleaning kit (spray, cloth, brush thing)

You're getting 3 good quality Micro USB cables too which you can't really have enough of!

My total by Googling
Tablet = around the 150 range
Speaker = £19.99 and up to around 30
Cleaning kit = less than a fiver for sure
Car charger = less than fiver

So around about £180..

YES the tablets are second hand (as are the prices I checked) But the screen on mine has not got a single ANYTHING, there's two light scratches on the back and a few light ones around the edges..
If I had a bit of cash free id probably buy another to sell the tablet/speaker separately!

Anyway, enough rambling on

Oh and the tablet is 4G, tested it with a EE simcard, got 4G straight away!
Also the tablet gets GPS fix EXTREMELY fast, I don't know if thats normal though but my Galaxy S4 is **** for picking up GPS.

Toodles!

Great deal but this is Used item.

Been looking at this listing for a while. Is the USB port's waterproof flap/covering missing/fubar as per the listing? Any other openings for the rain or bathwater to get into that were originally sealed?

According to the description this one is missing a flap, so the tablet is not waterproof. Not necessarily a deal breaker but important if you were planning some bath time browsing!

Nah it'll be fine, if my electric toaster can survive being used in the bath I'm sure this tablet can!.

Ah good to know! I'll also get my hair dryer in there to save time!

This is a used item. I don't want something once someone has had their grubby hands all over it. For that reason, I'm out.

So whats the best data deals for this? I was looking for a PAYG sim to go with this but can't see anything about expiry dates. I would want it just for occasional use so don't want to fork out £20 on data if it only lasts 30 days... Any ideas?

Need to add used to the title .......

Have a look at this article for deals...engadget.com/201…ook

Despite what some sellers state you will have no Sony guarantee unless you are given vat receipt.I checked this with Sony when thinking of going for an earlier deal on ebay.

Not bad at all.

Thanks OP I've just bought one of the last ones remaining. I am going to be super delighted if this can double up as a phone. I use a headset before some smart Alec somes up with the Dom Jolly comparisons.

What version of Android does it update to?

You would be much more happy if it was only your little grubby hands that got to touch it, am I right?

I''m typing on the one I bought from this seller a couple of weeks ago and am very pleased with it. I also got the speaker and car charger but haven't used them yet.

Lollipop. Allegedly, 5.1.1 is due shortly.

If you want to get new port covers for waterproof..
Anyone know what android version this has been updated to?

Can this create a mobile hotspot? I have a sim in a hotspot device but if this can create a 4g hotspot then that would be awesome, I could get rid of my tablet and hotspot and just have one device.

Anyone know if this can be rooted?

I'm not sure. The lollipop update on my z3 had totally cocked up being able to use it as a hotspot. Still waiting for an update to fix it

​Look at my previous deal about using a PAYG T Mobile Sim to get 1gb a month, for 6 months, of 3G Data for £20.

The charging port cover is missing yes, the others are still there!
I don't see to much of a problem with that though as I don't plan to show off its waterproof capabilities.. lol

No problem! You can text from it and use Whatsapp (download beta from their website) and you can obviously use the 4G data but you cannot phone..
You can use an internet based app to phone I suppose but I have tried phoning my number in the tablet and it just keeps saying line busy, there's no dialer app either, there is no support of GSM voice communication unfortunately

But internet based calling, yes

OK I've gone for it. Thanks OP!
Anyone know the best case/screen protector deal for this?

They can be rooted yes, I have a rooted Galaxy S4 and plan to root this tablet when I have enough time to do so

For those who get this deal: the Tab Z has a factory applied 'Anti-Shatter-Film' on the screen. it peels of really easily and removes all of those niggling little scratches to give you a pristine, smooth screen as new. as long as you don't throw it to the ground, you will be so much happier. It also feels better to touch, cold like glass instead of warm and sticky like plastic. Same with most Xperia Z models, although I hear the Z Ultra front ASF is more difficult to remove, so I keep it on just in case. Hope this helps someone!

Thanks , Ordered

Got mine in a Poetic:

I bought one of these last week but have returned it as the condition of the rear was very poor.

Me too

Cracking tablet for that money

LOL... But there's a big difference between a manufacturer refurb and 2nd hand from eBay though.
This deal still needs used or 2nd hand adding to title though. I Suspect OP won't update though as less likely to get so much heat with an honest title.

Whats the big difference as surely both have had folks mucky paws all over it.

Dammit, I paid 20 quid more two weeks ago.

Make sure you put the screen protector on, the screens scratch quit easily.

I don't need it, I don't need it...https://41.media.tumblr.com/258761978916acbbed8c9b8364bd1af2/tumblr_nf6lb0z1dd1taz3j8o2_500.png
