great design, great audio
avg battery life, on/off button awkward, htc music library not compatable to google play music!
• • •

This is a huge upgrade for me (had a 4 yr old BlackBerry bold for business use only). Now that Ive had it for over a month and have settled in with its design - here are some comments:
Pros: great screen, super easy to use, love the beats audio sound, love the architecture.
Cons: on/off button awkward positioning to wake-up screen...with larger phone its hard to hit button located on TOP with one hand when screen goes to sleep. Why wouldn't wake-up button be on front of phone?? No work around - tried multiple apps to change this and no help there. Also this phone raves about its camera which is one of the reasons i got it but photos are consistently grainy.
Lastly - and this is a huge issue - the HTC Music application which comes with the phone is great EXCEPT! the Google Play Music libraries are not compatible to import into the phones software. Why would HTC do this? I loaded my whole library into HTC Music and now have to repeat the process into Google play music. I actually prefer HTC Music - easy to use, very nice application but it is useless as this phone is Google based!

Overall an excellent smartphone.




Display, menus, simplicity
Average battery life
• • •

This is my first smartphone, and I was expecting it to take a little while to get used to the menus, typing, etc. However, this phone is incredibly simple to use.

The display is VERY sharp, the menus are easy to navigate, and despite it being a large phone, it's still comfortable to hold and use.

My only criticism is the rather short battery life (Due primarily to the screen hogging a large portion of the power).




Non expandable memory

This phone is a killer! I must say that the HTC one X is the best android phone this 2012. Specs-wise everything was done beautiful. Design.. well I must say this is the best HTC phone when it comes to it's design. This phone is a must have. :)




no removable battery
• • •

this phone has an awsome camera and a huge 32gb of stoargae and 25gb of dropbox. why do you need an sd card with that much? the camera looks awsome and hte phone design is very nice and sense 4 looks amazing. the only annoyance is a non removable battery.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
