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?

Simple Calendar Widget

Android may have its own native calendar widget, but that doesn't mean you have to use it. Simple Calendar Widget provides a serious upgrade from the stock setup, with an info-packed display that can be customized to your heart's content. You control everything from the layout to the color scheme, font color and manner in which events are displayed.

However you configure it, Simple Calendar Widget looks great on a lock screen -- and it's fully scrollable and expandable, too.

The best part? It's a free download in the Google Play Store -- no strings (or ads) attached.

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.
