I am so happy that this version of the T-Mobile MyTouch has been made with a board. I can’t tell you how many times I was disappointed in the past with frustration at the whole process of using their touchscreen.
The Add On’s:
- A board that can now be slid out for use
- A World Phone
- A camera with 5 megapixels
- A neat UI
- About $180 USD with a T-Mobile contract
- Media syncing uses DoubleTwist
- Has great connections for socializing
- Has Android 2.1 and also has a great UI
- Not small enough
- Not big enough to fit my fingers on the keyboard keys
- Not fast enough
When it comes to good handsets, T-Mobile has been using (wisely) Android for its needs. There are a lot of others that are using Android, but T-Mobile has been plugging up to it on a lot of different devices lately and is pushing it towards the MyTouch as well.
One of the great things about this version is that it comes with a board you can type on (like the Blackberry and couple of other models).
What I Like
Everything is customizable though Android and it was a big success for this particular device. Everything can be set unique to the person and everything has the ability for this, that’s one of things that makes Android so special for devices like this one. This 3G slide wasn’t a disappointment in that area. You can use this socially and use things like Facebook for regular updates and the like.
Everywhere I used this phone, it gave me a great range of clarity. Depending on how you are planning on using the phone, your battery will more than likely last you a pretty long time (about 7-18 hours) depending on how and how much you end up using it. I like it when devices like this have headphone jacks that are nice quality and allow me to beat it up at times. These offer not only that but some nice voice command features as well.
What I Didn’t Like
One thing that I didn’t like very much was the material and handle of the phone. It felt rather cheap in my opinion. I did appreciate how the keyboard came out of its home, though. It was a nicer change from some of the other models that I have reviewed in the past.
Although it seems to be fast enough, whenever you have too many things going on, it automatically makes a leap from super-quick to super slow, which was kind of a bummer.
What I conclude
It’s a very good price for something that works as well as it does. I really appreciated this model because it’s something that can truly be used by all kinds of people.
A lot of different people are going to be attracted to this design and like the fact that it has a handy keyboard as well. This is one of the great advertising points of the device. If you’re the type of person who enjoys texting and do it quickly from a keyboard, this is a product well-suited to you.
