In Pictures: iPhone to Android. How to make the switch

If the Galaxy S III or other smartphone tempts you, here's how you can still fit it in Apple's ecosystem

Syncing documents

Apple's iCloud Documents feature in iOS -- recently brought to OS X -- can be very handy for keeping documents in sync across all devices you use to access or edit them. It's an Apple-only feature for which there is no way to gain foreign access.

But that's OK. iCloud Documents is quite limited, requiring the same app on each device to read a particular file type. Many apps in iOS aren't on OS X, such as OS X's TextEdit text editor, so iCloud Documents often can't do the job.

You should use Dropbox or Box instead; many iOS apps support them natively, and they work on pretty much every mobile and desktop OS today.

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.
