Looking for phones? CNET's reviews of the best phones include photos, video, and user reviews.
The iPad Air 2 is a nice refinement and finesse of last year's model, with a bevy of tweaks, enhancements, a much faster processor, and the welcome addition of Touch ID. Simply put: it's still the gold standard for tablets.
The iPhone 6 delivers a bigger screen while remaining easy to handle, with plenty of features to satisfy everyone -- and the promise of Apple Pay on the horizon to potentially sweeten the deal even further.
Impressive Amazon features and an outstanding display make the the Fire HDX 8.9 one of the best and most affordable media consumption tablets.

If you've been hoping for a fully-fledged flagship phone with all the bells and whistles of the the other elite mobiles just in a more compact size, prepare to be disappointed. The Galaxy S5 Mini matches the regular S5 in name and looks, but not in specs. If you're after a comfortable to use phone with the Samsung name and enough power for everyday use, it'll suit well. For a true compact flagship, look towards Sony's Xperia Z3 Compact.
Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport inches ahead of the original S5 by combining identical performance in a slightly more polished package.
Though it's only marginally more durable than the original Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Active's physical buttons and high-end features keep it in Samsung's hit parade.
