Ok guys, my dad bought me this phone about 2 months ago. He was pretty stoked that a band new smart phone is $100 in price. I was quite to, any ways. Having it for about 5 days, I had to charged it everytime I got back home from school. I have to charge it every 6 hours, even with me not even chargeing it. And it is not good at playing games, it is very laggy. And there is not much memory in the system. Only about 50mb? Anyways, if you just want to have an phone thats only good at making phone calls, this is the phone for you.

Overall the phone is decent...value for money...but the phone is getting heat while on call for more than 5 mins..though there are so many feature and compatability to vide range of android applications, one need patience to use all those as it is taking hell a lot of time to download/refresh the screens...maps, navigation, gallary...etc..and
secondly,it has a beautiful feature Wifi hot spot & USB tethering.... I loved it. But the WI FI connectivity is very slow...though you have very good signal strength, device is not able to catch the signal..otherwise on data sim it is awesome...

speaker quality is very poor..ear piece quality is poor..
Camera is good.

battery back up would be a concern for heavy users..

whatever it is compare the features with other phones and the price, it is the BEST smart phone available in the market...we have to see the durability and service support on long run as I have been owning it from just 1 mt.

My son gave me this phone, I was for years using a HTC with Windows Mobile and thought it was ok. This little phone blew me away, it is so useful, the weather maps and Google maps are awesome. Gmail works a treat but I am still getting used to the small keyboard. I never thought I would be so excited over a mobile phone. This phone it exactly the right size for my shirt pocket. I love it!

i personally find it gr8 i dont think web browsing is 'vastly infereor' at all i think its fine. and having had a iphone then buying a x3 i dont think theres much difference at all really. i love the weather clock widget and how you can d/l diffrent themes n it changes the icon pics. i like it, i like it alot n its much cheaper which is gr8 :-P its cute, i luv it! ive had it for 3wks now n still have no complaints. id recommend it 2 neone looking 4 a cheaper but good alternative. :-D

i got this phone for a prezzie at christmas its pretty reasonable but the plastic on the back cover can make it feel a little cheap, the texting however is very annoying and i end up pressing the wrong buttons. For instance i press the "A" and it comes up with "s" sometimes it all depends if you like to use your fingers.
overall the phone is very good value consiteriong the price and they could have added a few tweeks here and their but other wise if you are looking for a cheep phone for a kid of teen this would be great!

I bought this a month ago and agree with the review. Nice little phone but not going to set the world alight with processor and RAM. A larger keyboard and lighter launcher make a difference. For $99 though, it is well worth the money. Just be sure to pick up a screen protector on Day 1. Oh, and, erm, keep it dry.....

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.

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.
