In Pictures: Android lock screen widgets, 20 excellent options

Android 4.2 lets you put widgets on your lock screen -- so which apps make the most of the feature?

SoundHound

We've all been there: A song starts playing in your car, and you can't for the life of you figure out who sings it. SoundHound makes that problem a thing of the past: Just tap the app's lock screen widget and -- within seconds -- it'll identify the tune and tell you the details.

While Google has its own basic Sound Search widget built into Android 4.2, SoundHound packs some additional features. The program can recognize your own singing or humming as well as actual recorded music, for example; it also offers a live streaming lyric display to go along with any playing song.

SoundHound costs $5.99.

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.
