In Pictures: 10 ways to make Android faster, more productive and more secure than iPhone

iPhone users love to brag about their phones. Yet, for many users, Android is clearly the superior platform.

Pick your own keyboard.

Siri has been getting all kinds of press lately, and, sure, it can be amusing to try to get Siri to say off-color things. Yet, when I’m using data on my phone, I prefer text-based input. Unlike the iPhone, on Android, you have the ability to choose your own keyboard, such as Swype. Many Android phones come with Swype pre-loaded, but it’s not usually the default keyboard. Just press any text entry area for a few seconds and a menu will pop up. Select “Input method” and then choose “Swype.” That’s it.

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.
