4. Google Nexus 4 Android phone

There's no doubt about it, the Nexus 4 represents outstanding value for money. The lack of 4G and no expandable memory will push some potential users elsewhere, but the combination of an excellent screen, an attractive and well constructed design ...

The Motorola RAZR M proves that bigger isn't always better. It sacrifices little in the way of performance or features to achieve its compact and ultimately impressive design. Anyone who likes smaller phones should seriously consider the RAZR M.

8. Motorola RAZR HD Android phone

The Motorola RAZR HD's big battery definitely lasts a little longer than many of its competitors, giving it a slight advantage. This is a well-built smartphone with some intuitive software but the RAZR HD's industrial look and feel won't strike ...

9. HTC One S Android phone

The HTC One S certainly doesn't look or feel inferior to the flagship One X. A lower resolution display is the main differentiator, but the One S makes up for that with a design that's more comfortable to hold and ...

10. LG Optimus G Android phone

Poor battery life and the lack of a microSD card slot are downsides, but the 4G-capable Optimus G is fast, well-designed and has some handy software features. It's definitely LG's best smartphone ever.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
