Although it has a lot of grunt under the hood and a wealth of gimmickry, I'm sorry but the S3 was designed by someone who has no sense of style whatsoever. It is an ugly, plasticky phone that people will buy because of its power. For this reason, I decided to go for the slightly less showy xperia s, total class all the way!

Ok, gave up my S2, now that was a struggle in itself as the s2 was fantastic. The s3 , well its now my home pc as well. i purchased a $10 micro usb to hdmi adpter, connected the fone to my sammy 46 inch , hooked ny blu-tooth key/mouse to the s3 and there you go, a quad core pc. oh, threw in a new 128 gig mini sd card as well class 10. I play blu-ray from my fone to tv . Oh, the S3 even makes fone calls, but ive been so busy doing things to it that i havent had time to call anyone. My old old Iphone 4 is where phones like that are meant to go and die, as a nice glossy door stop or a speed hump in the drive. As for articles comparing s3 with htc one x, well i can confirm right now that quadcom benchmarchs show the older samsung s2 is faster than HTC one x. Face facts, Samsung has outclassed everyone and its no surprize that its taken the world by storm. " Time to load mp3 to s3, 35 seconds, time to load to iphone 12 mins. No activation itunes rubbish, no authorization apple crap. im sorry, who in their right mind would consider such a product. If you own a product, u decide what it can and cant do, not some fruit company miles away.

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.
