According to a press release, the Crystal is also the first phone to feature LG's next generation touch technology, Gesture Command that works with the 3D S-Class User Interface.

The Crystal's touchpad can be used both as an alphanumeric keypad and a multi-touch touchpad for controlling the phone

Users can assign these symbols to any of the phone's nine multitasking-enabled features. The phone also features a dedicated graphics chipset and an 8 megapixel AF camera.

The LG-GD900 Crystal is due to hit shelves in June in selected countries in Asia and Europe and will then debut in other countries across the globe.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
