ES File Explorer File Manager

If you passed on ES File Explorer File Manager in the past, take another look -- it has improved in leaps and bounds over the last year or so. It now can browse files on LAN-based SMB servers as well as cloud services including Amazon S3, Dropbox, Skydrive, Google Drive, Ubuntu One, Yandex, SugarSync, and Box. It supports Bluetooth and FTP, and it will open Zip archives, tarballs, and other compressed files. It does a great job of helping you find stuff on your device, and does a pretty good job of displaying images, video, and PDFs too.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
