Samsung Galaxy Core Prime VE launched at Rs 8,600 in India.

Sony has barely put a foot wrong with the Xperia Z4 tablet, the same as with its previous waterproof tablet, the Z3, the compact version of which remains one of our favourite tablets of all time. For example: a smaller footprint (the update requires only 1.3GB, about a third of the 4.58GB space needed for iOS 8), better battery life (up to an additional hour and even more with Low Power Mode), faster performance (e.g., smoother scrolling, animations), and boosted security with the option for 6-digit passcode instead of just 4. And Apple has added 3D Touch, a feature it talked a lot about when announcing the 6s earlier this month: depending on how you press the screen, you can trigger actions like getting a peek at the contents of an email or getting a look at a website before you go there.

With the Z4, Sony has solved that quibble, by coming up with a micro USB port you can leave exposed to the elements, even when you have the tablet with you in the shower. Siri, for example, now offers suggestions of what app you’ll want to use next, a feature Android has perfected with Google Now (and some would say is still ahead of Apple). iOS 9 also features a “Back to” strip at the top left of the screen – for switching between apps – a capability Android has had for years.

I reviewed the 10.1-inch Xperia Z4 at the same time as Samsung’s new 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 and, while they’re very similar machines – they both run Android 5.02 (hopefully, with upgrades to Android 5.1 in future), both are as thin and light as an iPad Air 2, if not more so – it’s interesting how their subtle differences make them suitable for quite different applications. After four or five days of carrying both around, I have to admit I reached for the Samsung more often, just because of that aspect ratio and despite that Sony has a sharper screen. (An incredible screen, in fact.) It turns out that Apple knows a thing or two about usability, and the 4:3 ratio feels a little more comfortable, especially when you’re using the tablet for applications such as reading magazines or books, or for the word processing or productivity apps that were the focus of my review. Bottom line: Because it’s such a critical component, both Apple and Samsung have become very adept at making fast, cutting-edge silicon. iPhone and Galaxy owners aren’t going to notice any glaring differences in most cases.

The Samsung has bottom-facing speakers, like an iPad, which can leave the sound a little muffled, especially if you’re trying to watch a video in bed.

It has stepped up to a 12-megapixel camera (after sticking with 8-megapixels for the last several years) and introduced more advanced individual pixel technology too. For Apple, the camera upgrade was absolutely essential because the 16-megapixel camera in the Galaxy S6 is a big improvement over previous Samsung cameras and it has received more than a few glowing reviews. Both of them scored so anomalously low in some tests we were left scratching our heads wondering whether we might be seeing some of the performance issues that Android 5.0 was known for, and that were said to be fixed in Android 5.1. And of course there’s the waterproofing, which probably won’t make so much difference to the way you shower – I only ever take phones and tablets into the shower with me three or four times a year, when a new Xperia comes out basically – but could make a difference to the way you cook, read in the bath or by the pool or at the beach.

While some reviews have questioned the practicality of the edge screen (e.g., “tricky to hold”) it’s nevertheless a big departure from the standard flat screen. Samsung also offers larger displays with better resolution: the S6 has a 5.1-inch display versus the iPhone 6s’ 4.7-incher and Samsung squeezes in the larger display without making the S6 appreciably bigger than the iPhone 6s.
