With a bigger screen than most Windows tablets and an included keyboard dock, the 10-inch Lenovo Miix 2 tries to walk the line between entertainment and productivity, but it's still a few keyboard tweaks away from success.

Its screen has a disappointingly low resolution, its processor doesn't put up much of a fight and it has an 8- rather than 13-megapixel camera. Unless you crave 4G, the Motorola Moto G is a much better buy as it offers a better screen, the same processor and costs half the price.
