Pros
There aren't any. I would not recommend this phone. It's a piece of junk!
Cons
The cursor jumps all over when you type. Words disappear. The screen blurs at times. When online it freezes a lot not allowing you to type unless you turn it off and on. I've had 7 of the same models in 9 months.

Nice small and compact, fits nice in the pocket. Perfectly adaquate for reading emails and the news etc, navigates OK, finds sattilites quickly. No good for comlex games and the video is crap. all round a neat capable phone.

Best design, but it should be improve its feature to make it perfect.. It should hv physical camera shutter key, 800 mhz processor, front camera, 720p video recording and flash player.. Etc..

Pros
the basic apps supplied when purchased
Cons
Touch screen does it's own thing
• • •

I work for a living going up to tropical north Qld doing physical work. When the screen gets covered in sweat, it won't work. After 4 months, I must have had the only touch screen that didn't like being touched!!

Pros
Awesome design, compact
Cons
Low internal memory
• • •

I bought my Wildfire s & until now it has been the best phone I have had in the past 10 years. And I have tried A LOT of phones. Before this I had the HD Desire -too big & clumsy (if I wanted a computer I'd have bought one). The Wildfire s is a great design, slick, easy to use & easy to navigate with one hand.

EXCEPT - it runs out of internal memory so quickly! Only downfall. But a big one at that.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

Anthony Grifoni

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
