We'll lets start off with... this phone is the crappiest thing I have ever brought! Starting with when you use YouTube it has a heaps bad lag, When Texting fast it freezes, the slide is terrible stopping half way and/or not sliding at all!!!The apps are so damn small that your fingers when you tap one you tap all of them and then your screen freezes! You cant cancel texts even if you press cancel, the touch screen isn't heat activated so if it slightly touches something in your pocket or bag it vibrates and makes sounds and wastes the battery!!! Also the Lock on the phone there's no point! On the screen it even says pull string down to unlock! So basically anyone can get into the phone.... There's just a none ending list with what is wrong with this Phone and i'm begging you not to waste your money because mine broke in half , 1 year after I brought it for no particular reason same with another person I know there's did the same... SO DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE AND DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ITS A TOTAL RIP OFF!!!! >:|

I got this phone about 4 months ago and it is already breaking, and I hardly use the phone, and the problem could not have been done physically. The slide does not slide out or gets stuck half way, good baybe when it did work is really easy to type. Also have to lock screen so doesn't go onto who nos what.

BASICALY IM SAYING DONT BY IT!!! P.S MY FRIEND HAD THE SAME PHONE AND THE SAME THING HAPPENED!!!!

brought this phone late november. To sum it up in one word... crap. Do not waste your money. Had it for 3 months and randomly,coloured lines appeared across it making it unusable. Took it back to the shop as they said they would send it to telstra to be fixed. Well, my phone sat in the place of purchase for two weeks and it was not sent off. this left me disadvantaged with out a mobile phone. When i went to get it back i was told that it had not been sent off yet so i was given a replacement. As annoyed as i was, i accepted the replacement only to take this home and to discover that this was not working either. I have given up on this phone and have gotten my money back.

So my advice is.... do not buy this phone!!! save your hard earned cash!
(BTW, i know that i am not the only person with these problems as one of my friends has experienced similar troubles)

Please save your time and money, do not buy this phone.

first use the screen kept jumping menus. On return from warranty repair the qwerty keypad had lost a row of functioning keys. Would not reccomend this phone. A real lemon. Waiting to see whats wrong when it eventually returns.

This phones quite alright old chap. Don't trust the expert rating as the 'expert' is obviously 30+ when the things aimed for teens or so to buy! In short guys, ratings from him dont matter!

I Own this phone and there hasnt been one problem. Except the touch screen, it still works but when using the background shortcuts it is just a bit slow.... Oh and in australia in is only $79, BigW sell them for $59 at the moment. Over all id rate it, 7.5 out of 10. for how cheap it is id always buy it. :) hope this helped

this is the crappiest phone EVER!! The touch screen hardly ever works. When the touch screen doesnt work that mean you cant send text messages! what a waste of money!! But i do like the qwerty keyboard. i give you a piece of advice: DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!!!!

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
