T-Mobile MyTouch review: T-Mobile MyTouch

 

The T-Mobile MyTouch is a simple starter smartphone that's compatible with T-Mobile's 4G network. It has good battery life and you can get it for nothing.

Despite the phone's midtier specs, it lacks a camera flash. Also, the speakerphone quality was poor and the interface was a little sluggish.

Though not without its merits, this most recent addition to the MyTouch family has too many things against it. No one issue was unbearable on its own, but when I add up all my qualms about it, I'd ultimately suggest another phone within its class.

HTC G2 with Google (for T-Mobile) Review - PCWorld

 

The HTC G2 is the successor to 2008's much ballyhooed HTC G1 (aka the "Google Phone"), the very first Android smartphone released in the United States. It's also the first T-Mobile phone built to take advantage of the carrier's new, faster HSPA+ 3.5G...

Phone supports fast network speeds

T-Mobile network remains inconsistent

While HTC and Google have done well at updating the G1 handset, concerns over the reach and consistency of the T-Mobile 3G network may prevent some people from buying into the G2.

The $199 myTouch 3G is a svelte and well-rounded smart phone, and it's a very good choice for T-Mobile customers. However, while the virtual keyboard on the myTouch 3G is good, it's not as easy to use as an iPhone. And although there are a lot more...

The T-Mobile MyTouch 3G is T-Mobile's second smartphone running Google's Android mobile operating system. And while the MyTouch 3G ($200 as of July 22, 2009) has much going for it-- a lightweight design, a gorgeous screen, and the 1.5 update to the...

Lightweight, compact design ; Gorgeous display

No physical keyboard

On the whole, I found a lot to about the T-Mobile myTouch 3G. I especially appreciated its size and its easy-to-use trackball, yet I can't help but lament its lack of a physical keyboard. The native software keyboard just doesn't cut it for long...

The T-Mobile MyTouch 3G has a sleek, attractive design with a gorgeous display, tactile controls, and an easy-to-use, customizable interface. Stereo Bluetooth and Outlook e-mail syncing are standard features, and call and data performance are excellent.
