MyTouch 3G Review

 

The MyTouch 3G (from T-Mobile U.S.A) is also known worldwide as the HTC Magic. This unit connects to the T-Mobile [...]

T-Mobile MyTouch (white)

 

If you're confused about the MyTouch phone family tree, you're not alone. A few years ago, HTC and T-Mobile started to release a line of phones under the MyTouch umbrella. These included the MyTouch 3G , the MyTouch 3G Slide , the MyTouch 4G , and the...

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.

T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide

 

Ready to graduate from the T-Mobile Sidekick? Debuting on the network on June 2 and priced at $180 with a two-year contract, the newest addition to T-Mobile MyTouch family stands out from its siblings with a full QWERTY keyboard, a slick new Android...

Comfortable full QWERTY keyboard ; Intuitive user interface

Some native apps can be slow ; Camera is hit-or-miss

The MyTouch 3G Slide is a solid midrange Android phone with a great feature set, but its camera isn't as good as those on other phones in its class.

Like it or not, T-Mobile has now officially turned its myTouch brand into an entire franchise, thanks to the addition of a second model and an entire line of styled accessories -- but it's not just about the hardware. Far from it, in fact: with the...

T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide (red)

 

For a long time, T-Mobile led the charge as the only carrier with Android phones. But in the past few months, Verizon and Sprint have brought out some crowd favorite Android phones like the Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Incredible, and HTC Evo 4G. However,...

The T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide features a full QWERTY keyboard and the latest version of Android, 2.1, with all of its capabilities. T-Mobile's customized user interface brings a more consumer-friendly look and feel to Android, and the carrier includes...

The Faves Gallery doesn't always display the most up-to-date information. Its camera photo quality is subpar

The T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide isn't the flashiest Android device on the block, but its midrange feature set and friendly user interface make it a good choice for first-time smartphone buyers.

Voice command software, personalization options, and a roomy slide-out keyboard help this Android smart phone stand out.

Between myModes for task-based customization, social networking with Faves Gallery and Friendstream, and the handy Genius button, T-Mobile brings a lot of handy features to the table with the myTouch 3G Slide. While similarly priced phones, such as the...

T-Mobile myTouch 3G

 

HTC's second Google Android phone is sleeker than its predecessor and offers plenty of cool apps.

The 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...

Android Phone Redux Is a Massive Upgrade

 

The myTouch proves that when paired with decent hardware, Android might have a chance to take down the iPhone.

Top-to-bottom hardware redesign is a big win, with thoughtful new features. Generally crystalline call quality. Solid selection of downloadable applications. More pocket-friendly than an iPhone. Responsive touchscreen. HTC-built hardware is as polished...

Screen gets smudged easily and is harder to wipe clean than competitors. Only 4 GB of memory = less tuneage than most smartphones. No standard headphone jack (mini-USB adapter required). Proprietary jack pipes your soundtrack through HTC's substandard...

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...

T-Mobile MyTouch 3G (black)

 

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...
