In Pictures: 10 best alternatives to the iPhone 5S

Just in case you were underwhelmed by the new Apple smartphones.

LG G2 By now, the features are probably familiar – the LG G2 is a 5-inch-plus Android powerhouse with a 1080p screen and top-shelf everything. Oh, and it’s got this weirdo control switch mounted on the back.

AVAILABILITY: Out on Verizon on Sept. 12, AT&T on Sept. 13, and T-Mobile on Sept. 18. Price is $200 with a contract on the first two, more like $500 on T-Mobile ($100 down, $21 monthly payment for 24 months.) Sprint will have it eventually.

WHY IT’S BETTER: If you’re a fan of the rear-mounted control – we haven’t played with it ourselves, but we could see it being useful – there’s no other option. Substantially bigger battery.

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.

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.

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.
