Samsung U10: a Full HD pocket cam with inbuilt YouTube software and 10-megapixel stills image mode
- Good feature set, easy to use, stylish design
- Fixed-focus lens, struggles in low lighting
The Samsung HMX-U10 is a worthy addition to the ever-expanding pocket cam family.
Price$ 249.00 (AUD)
The Samsung U10 (AKA Samsung HMX-U10 FlashCAM) is a pocket camcorder for bloggers and casual videographers. Boasting 1080p video quality, inbuilt editing software, a time-lapse recording function and a 10-megapixel still image mode, the Samsung U10 is pretty well equipped for the asking price ($249).

Unfortunately, in our brief tests, it fell down in the focusing department and also struggled to take good video in dim environments. Still, if you can live with these foibles it's an impressive little performer. Keep your eyes peeled for our full Samsung U10 camcorder review, coming soon.

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.
