Samsung Galaxy S4 review

With the Galaxy S4, Samsung has squeezed a superb 5-inch screen and a host of high-end features into a slightly slimmer, thinner and lighter chassis than its S III predecessor. It's an excellent handset, but some will find the S4 overladen with unnecessary features and too expensive.

HTC One review

HTC has pulled out all the stops with the One, which looks great, performs well and includes some clever features. The lack of storage expansion and the persistence of BlinkFeed are irritations, but overall the HTC One stands up well against rival flagship handsets.

Asus PadFone 2 review

The second generation of this dockable smartphone/tablet combo has a lot to recommend it, although we'd prefer a better tablet screen, a storage expansion slot (or two) and a standard Micro-USB connector.

Google Nexus 4 review

The LG-built Nexus 4 offers terrific value for money, if you don't mind its moderate battery life and lack of LTE support. Shame it's currently sold out at Google's Play store.

Google Nexus 10 review

The Nexus 10 sets the standard for other tablet manufacturers. If Google can persuade developers to fill in the gaps in the app market, then it will deserve to be wildly popular.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 review

When it works well, the Galaxy Note 10.1's S Pen functionality is impressive and reliable. However, we'd like to see more emphasis on handwriting recognition. The quad-core processor can surely handle this, and we'll be looking for it in the next-generation Note device.

Google Nexus 7 review

The Nexus 7 offers an appealing combination of 7-inch form factor, quad-core processor, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS, pleasing design and solid build quality. Affordable pricing ensures that Google has a winner on its hands.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 review

The Transformer Pad Infinity retains the superb physical design of its predecessors, adding a new high-resolution screen without impacting battery life. We'd like to see mobile broadband support, a lighter weight for the tablet/keyboard combo and a lower price, but the Infinity is still a class-leading product.

Fujitsu Stylistic M532 review

This smart-looking, lightweight 10.1in. Android tablet comes with a good range of preinstalled business software. Although its lack of support for USB devices and USB charging is unfortunate, Fujitsu has made an admirable job of producing a tablet that's equally usable in the office and at home.
