Possibly the worst phone on the market, this piece of crap does everything to annoy and frustrate the heck out of me.
Normal daily use involves doing a hard reset - taking out the battery and re-installing - at least twice a day, but sometimes - as yesterday - 8 times.
Calls drop out for no reason and the screen lcoks up far too often.
I would never buy a Blackberry again based on this rubbish phone.
Its going in the bin tomorrow and a new phone is being bought to replace this junk.
Any phone would be better than this, and frankly I expected better from RIM, but they refuse to assist or help to fix the problem.
It did go in for repair and a software upgrade was apparently done. The only thing that changed was my complete list of contacts was gone, but the phone still performed just as badly as ever.
I am glad to be rid of this door stop once and for all.

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.

Simon Harriott


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.
