Multiuser support and childlock

Does the tablet support multiple users (used for all family members, with different google acounts)

and is there support for small children, such that they have limited access to apps?

 

As far as I know it supports none of it out of the box with android 4.x. I have no idea if this is supported with the new android 5.x

 

If multiuser is not possible at all I would not consider buying a sony tablet.

@pospiech

Which tablet do you mean?

Anyways, if the tablet is upgradeable to Lollipop then you can setup multiple users on it. And for app restriction, you can install any app locker from Google Play.

Hi pospiech,

 

The Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact comes with Lollipop out of the box. 5.0 to be exact, and it will also receive the Marshmallow update ( region dependant). 

 

Have you go the User section within Settings?

 

Menu > Settings > Users

The User function is available on the Lollipop platform, and is also available on the Xperia Z3 tablet Compact. However this could be restricted to the country you are in, the only way to find out for sure is to contact Sony Mobile Customer Care within your region.
