CNET editors round up their favorite tablets, including products from Apple, Samsung, and Google.
While the battery is a concern, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is still a good-looking slate that's loaded with more than enough power for anything you're likely to throw at it. It's a good choice if you're looking for a more affordable iPad alternative with 4G LTE -- particularly if you've ever lost a gadget through water damage.
The Belkin tablet case provides a firm fit and basic protection, but its design conforms better to midsize tablets than 7-inchers.
The 10-incher is another moderate Windows 8.1 release in HP's latest lineup of slates.
The Encore 2 starts at $200 and comes in 8- and 10-inch flavors, but they offer largely identical features.
At just €130 -- about £105 or $170 -- the Archos 80 Cesium is a wallet-friendly 8-inch Windows tablet.

Although the Sony Xperia M2 looks pretty slick, it's let down by its low resolution display and its old version of Android, which makes even its affordable price way too high. For much less money, you could snap up the Moto G or spend a little more and pick up the older Xperia Z with its full HD display and waterproof design.
