It's all about the screen. Xiaomi installs a huge 6.4-inch screen in a casing that is just a bit bigger than those of conventional premium-range smartphones into its new high-end phablet.

Silver Award. Despite the rather high price, Lenovo's ambitious, long-lasting 14-inch convertible doesn't quite make it across the 90 percent mark.
