Toshiba Encore review: an 8-inch Windows tablet that struggles to stand out

The Encore is a jack-of-all-trades, and master of none; while there are few things it does badly, it's not so good in any one area that you'd choose it over other small Windows tablets.

Pros
  • Comfortable to hold
  • Bright display
  • Includes a micro-HDMI port -- a rarity on 8-inch Windows tablets
Cons
  • No clear edge over the competition
  • Finicky hardware buttons
  • Terrible rear camera
