lack of apps may bother some users

I love this phone. I love everything about it. There is a lack of apps but unless you like to install a bunch of random crap, it's not too bad. I mainly use the big apps and I really enjoy the use of Office programs on my phone. Being able to open them is essential for uni and work.

Initially I was annoyed at the lack of a rotation lock but there's been a few updates and that's now available. Windows is being constantly updated and improved but I love the logical and systematic layout of everything. You can't customise the entirety of the phone but that suits me just fine.

Best for older users because it's similar to a computer and easy to navigate and figure out.

Good size, good specs, perfect for users who want a phone that works.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.
