Pros
The HTC Sense is fantasic
Cons
Battery life is poor, various laggy glitches, rubbish internal memory & front face looks ugly
• • •

I've have the handset for just over a year, i found Android 2.2 hopeless (laggy, had errors with trying to do thing like installing apps etc) this was fixed with updating to android 2.3. The battery life is very disappointing if you like to watch vids or browse the net. The OS can get quite laggy *at times* but is generally quiet smooth. I find the camera to be pretty average and the Internal memory is quite a big issue as a number of apps can't be moved to Micro SD card.

None the less, I haven't really regretted buying this phone as it has done it's job to a satisfactory standard. I like the wifi hotspot feature and love the htc sense layout.

I'd like to upgrade to something like the Samsung Galaxy S II but I would defiantly miss HTC sense.

Pros
cheap
Cons
poor customer service
• • •

only had phone 2 months, keeps losing battery, they have said this due to sweat damage... and have refused to refund or exchange-- stating their policy is not to refund.. the store are also refusing to refund saying its up to the phone compay to do so, each not interested in helping.
so maybe think again about buying a HTC phone...

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.
