T-Mobile G1 (Google Android Phone)

  • Conclusion: The T-Mobile G1 is a basic introduction to what could be a blockbuster mobile platform. While it lacks key features right now, it's a decent smartphone that will surely grow with time.

  • Summary: There has been a lot of talk about the HTC Dream. And we do mean quite a bit. Introduced as the T-Mobile G1 in the second half of 2008, the first Google Android phone did create quite a stir in geek circles.

T-Mobile G1

MobileTechReview.com
20 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The T-Mobile is a great start for Google's first Android phone. While it might lack features like video recording, A2DP and a built-in video player, usability is top notch and the core functions work well: phone, web and basic email.
  • Pros: Fast and responsive, very easy to use, easy to download applications via the Android Market directly to the phone. Very good capacitive display, good camera photo quality and obviously excellent Gmail support. Excellent call quality.
  • Cons: No 3.5mm headphone jack, can't shoot video, no A2DP, keyboard on brown model lacks contrast. On-board multimedia applications are weak other than the good mobile YouTube player. No desktop or Exchange syncing.

  • Pros: Android operating system; bright 3-inch touchscreen; user customizable; excellent sound
  • Cons: Clunky and heavy; no 3.5mm headphone jack; short battery life for music playback

T-Mobile G1 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
16 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Updated : The T-Mobile G1 is the smart phone equivalent of a Google beta application: innovative and mostly satisfying, but it also feels like a work in progress. Key among the G1's strengths is the new Google Android operating system, which, unlike the iPhone, is completely open to third-party...

HTC T-Mobile G1 review -

Mobile Choice UK
2 February 2012
  • Pros: The Google Android platform unearths an abundance of possibilities in terms of applications, from the ridiculous to the sublime.
  • Cons: While we can just about forgive the lack of a 3.5mm headset port, to not include Stereo Bluetooth is infuriating.

Can Australia's first Google Android-powered mobile phone trump the iPhone 3G?

Good Gear Guide.au
25 June 2009
  • Summary: The HTC Dream is a strong smartphone effort overall and the Google Android OS has a lot of potential. As it stands this phone is missing some critical hardware and software features that prevent it from being a standout product.
  • Pros: Full QWERTY keyboard, responsive touch screen, Google Android provides ease of use, potential for future upgrades and new applications, notifications and status bar, excellent integration with Google services, Android Market app store, polished Web browser
  • Cons: No auto-rotate, no on-screen keyboard, design flaws, no 3.5mm headphone jack, mediocre non-Gmail e-mail support, no document editor
