Most modern electronics is poorly constructed junk. Sony's Xperia products are an exception, they are a rare instance of modern craftsmanship. I had made the mistake of buying Google Nexus products, both the tablet and phone. Of course, as one should expect from Google, these products are complete garbage, both poor craftsmanship and poor design. Thankfully my Google tablet broke quickly, so I could replace it. I looked into various tablets and found that Sony's Xperia tablet is unpopular, a likely sign that it is high quality. So I bought the Xperia Z2 Tablet and I am very impressed with both its craftsmanship and design. But while the hardware is excellent, the software is Android. There isn't much choice in mobile operating systems, all of them are American garbage. And since all American garbage is the same low quality trash, you might as well just get high quality hardware from Sony and learn to live with the trashy American software.
