The LG G3 is an elegant high-end Android smartphone with a superb 5.5-inch screen, a high-quality 13-megapixel main camera, a fast quad-core SoC, intelligent UI skinning and an admirably restrained set of software extras.
HP's 14-inch EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 combines ultrabook elegance with MIL-STD 810G robustness. It has a great screen and performs well, but lacks integrated VGA and Ethernet ports. You'll pay a premium price too.
The G Pad 8.3 is a well-thought-out tablet. Some may find the software extras a bit much, but there's a lot of utility in there. The hardware spec, like the device as a whole, is good value for money.
