Apple should sue!

Typical Asian manufacture copying the designs from the worlds best. US should place an embargo on such crap and sites such as these should do their part by not promoting these products.

The review is clearly biased and serves only to protect the interest of the group that published it.

Pros
The fabulous screen
Cons
Reception, battery life
• • •

I bought a Samsung Galaxy S II earlier this year & was quickly forced to return it as being unusable in rural areas. NO reception most of the time at my house. A lovely phone in many respects, but if it can’t pick up signal outside major population areas, it isn’t very useful. Because I live a long way out of town & travel a fair distance every day, I need a reliable phone & I was very disappointed with its performance in this respect.

In addition, the battery life is extremely poor - as has been noted previously by others,

I replaced it with the Nokia N9, much to the dismay of the adolescent salesman (because it's not an Android phone, it didn't register on his radar). This phone gets Telstra’s “blue tick” and I get maximum signal at the same location. The battery life isn't any better though:)

Pros
Performance, Size and too easy to use..
Cons
No probs so far (2months)

I'm amazed with the performance and the way SII responds to my selections. Very sharp and crisp, clarity pics and videos considering the size of the screen. Very smooth and enjoyable. Simply can replace iPhone 4, 4s and SII gives me a bonus "the big screen" - which is VERY USEFUL for reading webs and texts. Love that phone!

Cons
short battery life.

So good a phone but the battery life is so short. It is not goodd for countries having power supply challenges. Also the battery cover is filmsy. But confess the phone is superb.

It's not perfect and has a few minor flaws —<the rear battery cover feels flimsy when removed> read again and think what you wrote.

speed
Cons
battery in heavy use

Have owned this for a week and as my first Android experience,so far extremely impressed with the ease and speed. Can be customised to suit your needs as far as positioning of applications to where you wish to access these quickly. Moving between applications is incredibly quick. Web browsing is also fast. So many options to get in to and I will be treating this as a mini Galaxy tab. Many Android apps to choose from. As a moderate to heavy user I am finding the battery lasts about 12 hours.

Super speedy, gorgeous big screen
Cons
Battery life is ho-hum
• • •

Amazing phone, so speedy. Battery life seems a little worse than my Galaxy S so far which is disappointing. Hopefully some OS updates that take advantage of dual core in future might optimise battery life.

Told Telstra I want one. They said at the end of June. Want one with 32g storage. My birthday is in November, but who cares. By then might get the Sammy Tab...early Christmas so to speak.

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.
