In Pictures: 10 best alternatives to the iPhone 5S

Just in case you were underwhelmed by the new Apple smartphones.

Google Nexus 4 It’s (comparatively) a little dated at this point, but the Nexus 4 packs a smooth, vanilla Android experience, attractive construction and still-competitive performance at a bargain price.

AVAILABILITY: $250 from the Play Store for the version with 16GB of storage, and $200 for 8GB – which might not sound like such a deal, until you realize that’s without a carrier subsidy. You can get it from T-Mobile for as little as $20 up-front, with a new contract.

WHY IT’S BETTER: Pricing. Be warned, however, that it’s not LTE-capable, and that you’ll still need to buy a wireless plan.

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

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.

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.
