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?

Ultimate Custom Widget (UCCW)

Ultimate Custom Widget (UCCW) is an Android power user favorite -- in fact, it's a common thread in many of the most impressive Android home screen setups.

UCCW allows you to create practically any widget imaginable by using its WYSIWYG editor. Widgets can include elements like clocks and weather panels as well as dynamic info about missed calls, unread emails and new text messages.

You can also download ready-to-use UCCW widgets that other people have created; just search the Play Store for "UCCW skin" to find plenty of interesting possibilities.

UCCW is a free download.

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.
