I had the S4 for 4 months. I was looking through the phone and dropped it from waist high onto a Capet floor. The inner screen broke. Contacted Samsung and they told me weakness is not covered and it would cost $175 to fix it. The phone was in an Otter Box case also. I am back with my old Motorola razor which is just as fast and a LOT more durable. I will not be buying and Samsung products anymore.




An extremely fast phone,with many new useful S features,great camera

This galaxy S4 is my first Samsung andriod phone and it did not fail me. I have owned for around 2 weeks and playing around with it, when I run the benchmark test it scores 3210. I found it S features pretty useful and 13MP camera with 2.2flens really a great pocket camera with the production of crispy, stunning images and full HD @ 30fps. Built-in 16GB +user expandable memory and user-replaceable battery are handy stuffs also. I find it very useful on having multiple windows effect which is not new. Thanks to 2 GB RAM its application performance loads up real fast and switching between apps is a breeze. All in all, this is a great phone with great performance, I really enjoy having it. Battery life is great if you use the wifi effectively it can last for 2 to 3 days without charging. The 3 main things effect on battery usage 4G LTE network, wifi and screen brightness. So adjust them wisely to crave out the best battery life. I put it +5 on Auto mode in screen, use wifi when I need and use 4G when I need and it can last for a day(merely 24 hour).Cheers!
P.S- My S4 version is I9505.

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.
