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

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 gets early user review


Oh sure, you've already read over our (and Ryan Block's) brief one-day impressions of T-Mobile's G1, but one lucky (lucky!) user over at AndroidCommunity has been able to handle one for more than just a few hours. As a precious gift to the world, ...

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 (Google Android Phone)


The first Google phone, T-Mobile's G1, doesn't have a ton of features. But that's okay; it'll grow.

First Google Android phone. Connects to Google services. Very good Web browser. Highly configurable. Solid call quality.

Poor music and video options. Subpar document support. No Flash support in browser. No Microsoft Exchange e-mail connectivity. Nonstandard headphone jack. ; Watch the T-Mobile G1 Video Review!

Calls on the G1 sound terrific, at least for the person who's using the phone. Calls on T-Mobile's 3G network in New York were loud, clear, deep, and well-rounded. There's no in-ear feedback of your own voice, but whether that's good or bad is a matter...

T-Mobile G1 review


It's been a little more than a year since Google Android was announced and rumors of a little device called the HTC Dream started to leak onto the Web. We think it's fair to say that the Dream stirred up as much anticipation and hype as the Apple...

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 Review


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...
