In Pictures: Android lock screen widgets, 20 excellent options

Android 4.2 lets you put widgets on your lock screen -- so which apps make the most of the feature?

Tiny Flashlight + LED

A smartphone can save the day when you suddenly find yourself in the dark. The Tiny Flashlight + LED app is perfect for such occasions: It provides a variety of lock screen widgets to turn your phone's flash onto its brightest setting with a single tap.

Once you're past the lock screen, the Tiny Flashlight app supports a variety of different light patterns and styles. In my tests, however, its lock screen widgets all performed just the same basic on-and-off function; the only noticeable difference was in the style of the on-screen buttons.

Tiny Flashlight + LED is available for free in the Google Play Store.

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.

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.
