The myTouch 3G Slide has a nice physical QWERTY keyboard; speedy given its 600 MHz processor, HTC Sense UI partners well with Android 2.1

Display may be on the small side for some; hinge is a bit wobbly

The myTouch 3G Slide is a great smartphone for Android lovers that either need a full QWERTY keyboard, or aren't attracted to the Samsung Vibrant's design.

HTC myTouch 3G White

 

The Sapphire has finally made it's way to the States. Is it worth the wait? What's good: *extremely* customizable - both inside and out, sleek design, excellent touch screen, the "with Google" brand means that it's open and ready for modification....

extremely* customizable - both inside and out, sleek design, excellent touch screen, the "with Google" brand means that it's open and ready for modification

no multi-touch, stock Google keyboard not as good as third-party replacements, no camera flash, a little more power would be nice, major software problem out of the gate, the "with Google" brand means this phone will never see HTC's Sense UI

If you haven't been seduced by the iPhone just yet, then you'll want to check out other touchscreen options in the cell market.

The Touch 3G is the third incarnation of this impressive smartphone from HTC, and just like the old cliche, this time really is the charm for a device that offers up a real alternative to the Apple iPhone. HTC has clearly put a lot of thought and...

HTC Touch 3G

 

Building off the original Touch, HTC has seen fit to introduce a 3G version of its compact smartphone. Sitting in the middle of the market, the Touch ...

Compact design, TouchFLO 2D interface, HSDPA-capable, A2DP Bluetooth, GPS

Uninspiring, can't type using fingers, buttons are a little thin, average display, proprietary headphone jack

The Touch 3G improves on its predecessor by delivering a smooth user experience, but there is nothing else to really get excited about.

The Touch 3G is probably the closest handset in HTC's range to the iPhone. Niall takes it for a spin.

Thankfully, the screen on the 3G is flush with the case so it doesn't suffer from the same 90s smartphone look of the cheaper Viva. Nevertheless, the screen is rather small for a smartphones in this price range. It's narrower and about an inch shorter...
