Best gaming phones

The launch of Sony Ericsson's XPERIA Play — dubbed the 'PlayStation phone' — brought worldwide attention to mobile phone gaming. However, the presence of dedicated physical gaming controls is not the be all and end all.

Motorola Atrix

The Motorola Atrix doesn't stray too far from the norm once you look past its dual-core processor and fingerprint reader, but it is a slick, super-fast Android phone with good battery life. Anyone after a new Android phone with a big screen should definitely consider the Atrix; we just hope Motorola gives Atrix users the latest Android updates.

Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

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.
