First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best alternatives to the iPhone
- — 20 September, 2010 14:10
Apple's iPhone 4 has finally hit our shores, but the popular smartphone isn't for everyone. Believe it or not, there are plenty of valid alternatives in the world of mobile phones!
Once upon a time the iPhone was a device so sought after that you could walk down the street carrying one and receive any number admiring stares. Fast forward to 2010 and your Apple smartphone is "just another iPhone." After all, it is just one of more than 85 million iPhone and iPod Touch devices that Apple has sold worldwide since its launch in 2007, according to the latest IDC figures.
With this in mind, shouldn't you dare to be different? Don't you want to have a new, cool phone that nobody else has? If you want a capable touchscreen smartphone with all the latest features minus the Apple logo, check out the best phones that aren't the iPhone.
2 / 8
The Samsung Galaxy S possesses the best display we've seen on a smartphone (though we're yet to review the iPhone 4). However, this Android handset is let down by a few niggling annoyances, particularly the all-plastic build and the TouchWIZ UI, which that lacks the polish this premium smartphone deserves. The Galaxy S is a great smartphone, but it sits a notch below HTC's Desire.
