Pros
Web usage functionality
Cons
Extremely poor memory, crap battery life

Dated phone. Was ok in it's time, but load up on more than a couple of chunky apps and this phone really shows it's limitations. Will chew up the battery, & will have memory messages to contend with.

I have had my HTC Desire 3 months. In that time, it has had a new sim. Now it locks up with HTC errors on a regular basis. I read a report by a courier mail reporter in Brisbane comlaing of the same problems. He even noted the he should have listened to his daughter snd got a different brand. HTC (the company) support is useless and hard to get hold of. My old Nokia has far better signal strength than the HTC. I don't desire my Desire....

Pros
Good piece of kit
Cons
Internal memory a bit small

Had mine almost a year now & I'm generally very pleased with its performance, but internal memory could be larger so does not fill-up when you install some bigger apps from the Android Market

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
