Magenta lovers are expecting and waiting for the new T-Mobile G1 to play with it. I want one. Today, our friends for Android Community, made the first T-Mobile G1 review. Yes, now we can know that is the good and the bad, the black and the white, the pretty and the ugly.
- The device is fairly quick to startup compared to other HTC devices.
- It is very light considering what’s inside.
- The slide out keyboard works well and doesn’t have a flimsy feel to it.
- The Android Market works just as well as the iPhone’s App Store.
- There are already a lot of useful apps to download from the Android Market, including a free ringtone maker.
- The earpiece is fairly clear when making and receiving calls, you hear absolutely no static.
- The speaker is relatively loud compared to other HTC devices.
- The G1 has a big memory leak somewhere, and has to be restarted in order to get it running smoothly again.
- The battery charger makes the bottom of the phone extremely hot.
- No virtual QWERTY keyboard included.
- The phone doesn’t run as smoothly as you would think, programs sometimes stutter trying to start up.
- There is no folder system like that found on other HTC devices: finding your files requires you to search around in one of the various programs associated with the file type you’re trying to view.
- Video playback is very limited. The G1 would not play .mpg or .wmv files which are pretty much the standard when it comes to videos downloaded off the net.
