Once you've found out what the weather's like in Ukraine, and asked what the meaning of life is, Apple's Siri assistant can seem pretty useless — doubly so, if you're in Australia. But if you team it up with Wolfram Alpha, you can get some nice results to questions with substance.
Every inch the premium high-end smartphone, the Xperia Z2 delivers excellent performance, screen quality and camera resolution without compromising battery life. However, the abundance of third-party apps may confuse some users, and we noticed that the handset sometimes runs hot.
This affordable 8-inch Atom-based (Bay Trail) Windows 8.1 tablet has a nice IPS screen and delivers all-day battery life under light usage modes. Limited screen size, internal storage and processing power will prevent it from being more than a companion device for mobile professionals though.
The HTC One (M8) ticks most of our boxes: design, build and performance are all excellent, there's no app overload, and HTC Sense is improving with every iteration. Battery life could be better and some of the camera tools may seem unnecessary, but overall it's a winner.
There's more to this phablet than its curved chassis, although the moderate screen resolution and lack of storage expansion are disappointing. On the plus side, battery life is good and LG's Android tweaks are largely successful. Overall though, the G Flex is simply way too expensive.
This phablet offers flexible dual SIM support, an 8-megapixel front camera, NFC and a screen/stand, all for an affordable price. On the minus side, there's an imbalance between the paltry 4GB of internal storage and the generous software bundle, and the screen resolution is moderate considering its size.
Compelling though the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is, the asking price will buy you a well-appointed notebook that offers more capability for the average mobile professional.

The Latitude E7240 is solidly made and well connected, delivering impressive performance in a thoughtful design. It's let down by the keyboard and a lack of configuration options, turning what could have been a superb business ultrabook into merely a very good one.
The ThinkPad X240 offers plentiful configuration options, tried-and-trusted design, solid build quality and a twin battery configuration that delivers long battery life. Overall, this is an excellent business ultrabook.
The Moto G has its drawbacks, but it's well built, and if its features are sufficient for your needs, then it delivers superb value for money. If you're looking to equip a workforce with a basic Android phone, it's arguably the best choice currently available.
LG has done a great job with the 5.2-inch G2, whose battery life is a big plus. The power button placement is odd, but the G2's main drawback is its lack of MicroSD storage expansion. If don't need this, then it's well worth shortlisting.
The 10.1-inch Android-based Transformer Pad TF701T has a decent specification, including a quad-core processor, a high-resolution screen and good battery life from its tablet and keyboard batteries. The design could use a refresh though.
Given its specification and performance, the Nexus 5 delivers great value for money — if you can live with its (few) drawbacks. The middling-quality camera and uninspiring chassis design don't worry us, but the lack of MicroSD card storage expansion and moderate battery life are more serious minus points.
The Haswell-based Surface Pro 2 delivers improved performance and battery life, and its dual-angle kickstand is also welcome. However, the Pro 2's unchanged chassis design feels bulkier and heavier than ever, and it becomes very expensive when fully accessorised.
