The best three Android interface apps

We help you decide which interface to download for your Android-based smartphone or tablet

The open nature of Google’s Android mobile platform puts it well ahead of the game in terms of customisability. It is not only (partially) open source in that third-party developers’ ROMs can be used in place of the real thing, but it doesn’t impose the same restrictions as Apple or Microsoft when it comes to the way the platform is manipulated. Better yet, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a coder or not because the software does most of the work for you.

With plenty of user interface add-ons available on the Google Play store, it can be hard to decide what to download, especially when there’s a price attached. The following are our three favourites.

Note: this article is based on a Samsung Galaxy S4 running janjan’s version of stock Google Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat, not TouchWiz. To learn how to update your Galaxy S4 to a pure version of Android, click here. All of the apps featured in this slideshow can be used with TouchWiz as well.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.

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.
