The Sony Xperia Tablet series has always had decent build quality and judging by the torture tests below that doesn’t seem to have changed with the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet. In the drop test, the Xperia Z4 Tablet is dropped from around waist height onto a wooden floor face-down and comes through unscathed. The tablet also survives being dropped onto one of its corners, shown in the second video.
When it comes to the scratch tests, the front of the display fares well against screws, knifes and the like, although you can see the display flex as the tablet is poked. The rear of the tablet doesn’t do so well, as it is permanently marked when scratched. The last couple of videos show the Xperia Z4 Tablet being shot at by an air gun. As you can imagine, the gun wins on this occasion, but we’re impressed how well the tablet’s build quality stands up overall.
