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