I have owned this phone for a few months now, and it's working quite well for me. It looks good and is surprisingly light, so when I carry it in my pocket it doesn't weigh it down. The touch screen is good, although my standards are higher as I also own an iPod Touch 4, which has an exceptional touch screen. It responds quick and sharply, and I can hear every word on a phone call.

I'm disappointed about the fact that it's missing the option of a QWERTY keyboard, as again I'm used to typing on my iPod with that, so I would prefer it to the normal mobile phone keypad. The other thing is the lack of memory, which affects the amount of photos and videos I can take, and the amount of music I can download. At the moment I only have 3 photos on my phone, yet there is only room for 9 more- what happened there? The last thing I would change is the battery problem. It doesn't last for as long as I would like it to, despite how much I charge it. And no, I'm not over-charging it. I leave it on for 2 hours at the most, then take it off. If it's still missing charge then I will leave it for another 30 mins, check it again and charge it again if necessary.

Other then these minor issues, the phone is satisfactory. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a simple mobile phone that is not used 24/7. :)

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.
