Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet 32gb wifi for the price of 16gb £269.95 @ John Lewis

Found 5th Jul 2015
Great deal as it's the same price as the 16gb version. Normally judged as a bit overpriced, but with 32gb and an SD slot, boom, this stunning tablet gets very tempting. John Lewis' 2 year warranty adds a cherry to what, in my view, is a great deal.

Specs = 8", Snapdragon 801, Waterproof. More on the link.

What's this like compared to the Samsung Tab s



It's similar it's got android but it's different it's made by Sony lol

One difference is this can be used as a monitor for ps4 games wirelessly, very tempting but I like the look of the z4.

good price, my z4 tablet should be coming today, though its double in price!

I have a LG G Pad 8.3, this much of a step-up?

Both are very capable tablets, so it comes down to personal preferences. If you like Samsung's physical home button and TouchWiz, then go for Samsung; but it you prefer closer to stock and soft navigation keys (and dust/waterproof) then go for the Sony. Personally, I would pick the Sony over Samsung every time.

On paper and in synthetic benchmarks, this newer Sony tablet is superior to the G Pad in almost every way... however, I do not think there will be a great deal of difference in day-to-day use. I have the G Pad, and I use it a lot, and it never skips a beat, never slows down, and handles everything I ask of it, so I still don't yet feel the need to upgrade. The model posted in this deal has 32GB internal storage, which is obviously a big boost over the 16GB of the G Pad, and is the only thing that frustrates me about the G Pad.

I have both the G-Pad 8.3 and this and to be honest the other poster has it pretty much nailed. In day to day use you don't really notice the theoretical difference in speed. Both load apps really quickly, both load web pages fast, both have pretty decent battery life and both have removable storage. So unless you have money burning a hole in your pocket I wouldn't bother upgrading but you mileage may vary. I don't use a tablet that much and got this as a present on the Clove deal so kids now use the Gpad 8.3.

This is a great tablet, quite rare though. Only problem I've had is that it never got the OTA update to 5.0, had to download and install using 3rd party software.

Presumably it has a better performance profile and battery usage, It simply cannot be any worse.

If it had only Snapdragon 810

I've had this tablet since it was released and I couldn't be happier with it, great for gaming, email and other tasks it's probably the best tablet I've owned to date.

Don't be silly of course they can use it, it's waterproof for a reason. It allows them to lick, slober, use nose control and add pheromones at leisure.

At last this deal is getting heat. Got 32gb from amazon for same price when they was last on offer. Great tablet. Much better than my old samsung galaxy tab s 8.4.

What do the dogs use it for?



They use fitness apps to keep track of how many steps they've walked in a day

Anyone know how to request an Amazon price match?

​Chalk and cheese, my Z3 replaced my GPad 8.3. Sony is faster, lighter, screen quality higher and if you're an audio buff the HiRes audio chip in the Sony is exceptional. Good battery life too tho that took a hit with the lollipop upgrade.
