In Pictures: Evernote Touch vs. Microsoft OneNote

Which apps works better on Windows 8 touchscreens?

OneNote implements a radial menu UI for its editing tool that Microsoft developed to make their suite of Office brand applications (which includes OneNote) easier to use on a touchscreen. We found it preferable to Evernote’s editing tool. For example, when you double-tap on a word, highlighting it, a circle with the letter “A” inside appears near it. Tap this and a circular tool pops open from the encircled “A” which has buttons to change the text (color, font, size and style) and its formatting. This GUI is also used throughout OneNote to let you perform other tasks, such as copying-and-pasting, and adding elements (images or tables) to a page.

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.
