T-Mobile G1 Review

 

Updated : When you look at T-Mobile's smart phone lineup, the G1 certainly rises close to the top. We prefer the newer $199 myTouch 3G because of its sleeker design, but those looking for a physical keyboard and a Google phone experience should opt for...

Very good touchscreen, Customizable user interface, Excellent Web browser, One-touch search, Fast data speeds over 3G

Can't input text using touchscreen, No video recorder, 3.5 mm jack, or stereo Bluetooth, Small number of apps in Android Market, Limited cut-and-paste functionality, Runs warm

HTC Dream

 

Google's Android is awesome, but the Dream needs work. Parts of this handset are superb, but its lacklustre design and poor battery life hold it back significantly.

Android interface, Responsive touchscreen, HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS, QWERTY keypad

Could look better, Lack of 3.5mm headphone jack, Lack of video recording, Lack of stereo Bluetooth

HTC G1 Review

 

Google, a major player on the e-commerce market, but mostly renowned for its Internet search engine and e-mail service, has decided to also get involved in the communications market. It took it some years to do so, but the main reason that delayed the...

The most impressive feature of the phone is the fact that it can be added more and more features, as time goes by. You don't have the possibility to use the accelerometer with all the device’s apps, but the function is there, and a future update or...

It's clear that design is not one of the strong points of the G1. Furthermore, I believe that a better Li-Polymer battery would've been more appropriate for the first smartphone to run Android OS. The camera should've also featured better...

T-Mobile G1 Smartphone Review

 

Since there is no support for Microsoft Exchange, the G1 will not be useful to many enterprise users, so it won't have much impact on Blackberry users.The phone is not as sleek as the iPhone, but it is just as useful except for two large flaws. The...
