Creative much? How Surface Pro 3, not iPad, is Adobe's best canvas | News | TechRadar

"For all the things iPad may be capable of, the tablet isn't running a robust, desktop-class operating system like Mac OS X or Windows, meaning developers are often forced to reinvent the wheel when existing software launches on the device.

That gives Microsoft's Surface Pro 3a major advantage for those who prefer fewer compromises, since it's already running a full version ofWindows 8.1 powered by the same fourth-generation Intel Core processors found inside desktop and notebook computers – but with the convenience and all-day battery life of a tablet."

"Overall, it’s tricky to know what to make of the Nexus 9. On the one hand, it’s the fastest Android tablet we’ve tested, and battery life for light tasks such as watching video is superb. It has a bright, sharp display in a practical, usable 4:3 aspect ratio, and great speakers, plus it’s light and reasonably slim.
In addition, it runs pure Android, and the price for the base model undercuts the iPad Air 2 by a definitive margin. It's also cheaper than our favourite large-screened Android tablet - the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet.
Yet it has a number of serious flaws, with poor build quality chief among them. Then there’s the high battery depletion under load, backlight leakage around the edges of the screen, no microSD expansion, and a lack of high-capacity models, all of which put a major dent in this tablet's appeal.
Let us be clear about one thing, the Nexus 9 is a very good Android tablet; however, it’s also far from perfect."

Google Nexus 6 review •

"The biggest catch - aside from the potentially divisive size of the phone - is the price tag. Both the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 were pitched as mid-price phones with sub-£300 price tags, but Motorola's offering has a RRP of £499 for the 32G model (the 64GB is £50 more) - not outlandish when compared to other leading Android handsets perhaps, but the lofty cost could dissuade some from supporting Google's Nexus initiative for a third year running. That would be a shame, as Motorola has done Google - and the Nexus brand - proud with this device. Granted, that massive display will almost certainly take a bit of getting used to - especially if you're migrating from the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5 series - but it doesn't take long for the benefits to become apparent; bigger really is better, at least when it comes to Google's mobile OS."
