tiny phone

hey, its not a high tech phone. touch screen it lacks which i love because i love to text and i love the keyboard. others say the battery sucks, then i must have an awesome battery because i have great battery life. mainly i like the mp3 player because i use my phone for music when working out. its the generic blackberry and im cheap because i have straighttalk. the phone comes with the ovi app store so you can download themes, wallpaper, sounds, music. etc. the email and internet are awesome. its downfall is that its a tiny phone, and lacks touchscreen (which is overrated). if you don't like tiny phones or blackberry style phones then don't buy it. all in all, i like it because its not a popular style phone. buy a protective case or phone to protect the body of the phone. cant wait for something smaller thats high tech and fits in my back pocket.

I've had the E5 for a month now. While I like it, the battery life is really bad. I've tried 2 different batteries and this thing just eats up the juice just with minimal web browsing and email checking. The battery life was one reason I wanted this phone - but it has turned out to be a major disappointment.

Also the screen, whilst easy to read inside and okay to read in shade, is absolutely impossible to read in normal sunlight outside. The screen just disappears - you can't see anything.

I'm a bit surprised at the sluggishness when creating messages, bringing up the phone directory within messaging etc. Seems slower than my old e63.

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.
