T-Mobile G1 review: The whole cagoogle

 

The T-Mobile G1 is the Googlephone. Did we really need to say that? Well, there's more Google in this story than there is phone, so we guess we did. We've got a new contender on the race track but we're talking no rookie here...

Android OS ; 3.2" capacitive touchscreen display of HVGA resolution ; Slide-out five-row full QWERTY keyboard ; Qualcomm MSM 7201A 528 MHz CPU, 192 MB RAM ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps ; 3.15 megapixel...

Quite unassuming looks ; Pretty bulky and heavy ; The slider mechanism rattles ; No video-call camera ; No video recording ; No flash support in the web browser ; No file transfers or A2DP over Bluetooth ; No FM radio ; No screen auto rotation ; No...

if you prefer. The first impression sure is important. So, there we go

G1

 

At first glance, the T-Mobile G1 ($179 with a two-year contract) doesn't seem to merit much attention. It looks like just another bland, HTC-manufactured phone. But use the G1--the first phone to run Google's Android operating system--for 5 minutes,...

Highly responsive touchscreen Android OS offers great flexibility

No standard headphone jack Fair battery life

The camera app is a big disappointment. Though the device has a 3-megapixel camera, it lacks a flash, a zoom, and any controls for adjust image quality, white balance, or the like. There's no camcorder, either, though T-Mobile says that the imaging...

T-Mobile G1 review

 

It's hard to believe, but rumors of a "Googlephone" have been floating around since 2006. To put it in perspective, the first Gphone post on Engadget was written by Peter Rojas. Needless to say, it's been a long, slow ride to get to Android, the Open...

Innovative new OS ; Great hardware keyboard ; Responsive touchscreen

UI is uneven in places ; Camera poor for even casual use ; Browser performance was sluggish

T-Mobile G1 review: T-Mobile G1

 

Editors' note : We have updated the review since its original publish date to include changes to features and performance after installing the official Android 1.5 Cupcake update for the G1 released by T-Mobile in June 2008.

The T-Mobile G1 features a full QWERTY keyboard, 3G support, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth. The Google Android operating system offers good integration with Google applications as well as access to the Amazon MP3 Store and YouTube. As more applications...

The G1 doesn't include a standard heaphone jack and lacks Microsoft Exchange support. There are some annoying design quirks that make the smartphone uncomfortable to hold and difficult to use. You can't save downloaded applications to a memory card....

Though we're not in love with the design and would have liked some additional features, the real beauty of the T-Mobile G1 is the Google Android platform, as it has the potential to make smartphones more personal and powerful. That said, it's not quite...

T-Mobile G1

 

A first-class browser, responsive touchscreen, and a truly open approach to apps make the G1 a strong iPhone alternative, but it needs improvement.

Remember when the iPhone was going to revolutionize everything? It was so new, so shiny, so fast, so pretty…and so closed. Sure, it was eventually cracked, but every time there's an update it has to be re-hacked, and as of now the 3G still hasn't been...
