Just purchased the 2x from Harvey's with free HDMI cable. I previously have owned samsung mobiles and was going to wait for the Galaxy s2. It is for business so the cost difference was not a factor. After reading many reviews on both phones it came down to the physical size and the screen. After seeing the LG screen and trying the phone I could not want for anything more. After holding the 2x and knowing that the s2 would be lighter, thinner and larger I realised that it was not for me. It is fast silky and solid, connects to all my Bluetooth devices, sound is brilliant, HDMI works straight away, It installed and runs all my software including Pimlical Calendar program. Cannot be happier and recommend this phone.

At least my UK 2x came with a black rear cover, a grey plastic frame and with a HDMI cable. This is maybe the most iPhone4 alike Android set I‘ve seen so far. But its too big, the speed is less impressive than it should be and my old Nexus one was sometimes more responsive. The 2X totally lacks a notification LED and the famous trackball of the N1 would have been a great addition.
Android 2.2 is okay but outdated and LG doesn‘t seem to trust its own overlay as a home switcher is preinstalled. The LG keyboard is the best I‘ve tried yet (out of 15 at least).
The power button on the right hand side isn‘t very practical when holding the phone in the right hand, the camera isn‘t bad but still not as good as it should be with 8MP.
Not a bad phone, but far from perfect.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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


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.

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.
