In Pictures: iPhone to Android. How to make the switch

If the Galaxy S III or other smartphone tempts you, here's how you can still fit it in Apple's ecosystem

Getting apps

It's a cliché, but a true one: In iOS, there's (very likely) an app for that. Android has a smaller app selection. But you'll find that content apps and services apps (such as for banking, public transit, and airlines) are almost always available for Android if available for iOS. Ditto for basic utilities such as flashlights, social media, restaurant finders, and bar-code scanners.

Android does have fewer "pro" apps. If photo editing is your thing, you can't get Snapseed, iPhoto, or Photoshop Touch, and if office productivity is what you need, there's really just the $15 Quickoffice Pro. But chances are you use your iPad or computer for those tasks.

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.
