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.

T-Mobile myTouch 3G Review

 

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...

Compact design, Responsive touchscreen, Fast Web browsing, Large and growing app market, Plenty of customization options

No 3.5mm headphone jack, Cramped portrait-mode keyboard, Occasionally sluggish interface

T-Mobile MyTouch 3G review: T-Mobile MyTouch 3G

 

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.

The T-Mobile MyTouch 3G lacks important features like a standard 3.5-millimeter headset jack, a file manager, and camera-editing options. Video quality is uneven, and the HTML browser interface and virtual keyboard have their flaws. Also, it doesn't...

With the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G, the Google Android OS gets a much-needed boost. A few complaints remain, and some users may bemoan the lack of a physical keyboard, but we approve of its eye-catching design and interface, improved features, and satisfying...

HTC Magic review: Practical magic

 

A cool looking touchscreen carrying a new mobile OS was enough to get the attention of even the most hardened of them techies last time we checked. Fair enough, the HTC Magic isn't groundbreaking but the Cupcake-ful of changes it brings, promise a...

Android OS v1.5 Cupcake ; 3.2" capacitive touchscreen of HVGA resolution ; Qualcomm MSM 7201A 528 MHz CPU, 192/288 MB RAM ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps ; 3.15 megapixel autofocus camera ; Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g ;...

No video-call camera ; No Flash support in the web browser ; No file transfers over Bluetooth ; No FM radio

Well, for starters the Android sure looks more human. The formidable and weapon-like G1/ HTC Dream needed every ounce of weight to stand its ground. With an honestly lighthearted and disarming approach, the HTC Magic is willing to play by the...

Google Ion (HTC Magic)

 

Ever since we first heard of the HTC Magic, we've been waiting on the edges of our seats for it to land at T-Mobile. After all, the Magic would be our second Android phone for review and we were eager to see if Google and HTC could improve upon their...

The Google Ion (aka the HTC Magic) has a sleek, attractive design with a gorgeous display, tactile controls, and an easy-to-use interface. Features include stereo Bluetooth, seamless integration with Google apps, Wi-Fi, quick access to music and...

The Google Ion lacks full Outlook-syncing support and a standard 3.5-millimeter headset jack. Video quality is uneven and the HTML browser interface could be refined. Camera-editing and personal-organizer options are slim, and the landscape keyboard...

The Google Ion is the Android device for which we've been waiting. A few complaints remain, but its eye-catching design and interface, improved features, and satisfying performance make us excited about Android's full potential.

HTC Magic

 

Parts of the phone are as the name suggests, magic. The design, the touchscreen and the internet experience are all first class. But the absence of outstanding multimedia seriously jeopardises the success of this latest Android.

Excellent touchscreen, Sleek design, Great web browser, Access to Android app store

Poor multimedia options, No 3.5mm headphone socket or adapter
