Excerpt: I have had the T-Mobile G1 since October 2008 and I absolutely love the phone. I had the T-Mobile Sidekick Slide before I, invested in the G1. The G1 is compared to the iPhone but the deciding factor on me choosing the G1 was I needed both a QWERTY …
Excerpt: I have a lot of experience with the T-mobile G1 and I don’t believe that this is a good phone and I would not recommend purchasing this device. The keys on the T-mobile G1 are very small and it can be really hard to press the keys.

Excerpt: This was the first android phone available to the public, running Android 1.5 Cupcake out of the box. Not too much else can be said about it. It was a great phone, had a unique keyboard slide out feature, great build quality from HTC, including the matte black, rubberized body. It was very sturdy, had great call quality and introduced what is now the Google Play Store with all of the fun apps cataloged nicely for us.
Summary: It's nice in shape n it functions normal but did not work god when I used it outside the country. Couldn't tell why but I passed it onto my brother who said he could check it out but I never heard from him about it. It's nice anyway.
Great smartphone, but low memory and old operating system

Summary: The HTC G1 is an excellent low cost phone for an introduction to the android series. The user interface is easy to manage. The availability of a full physical keyboard for better typing accuracy and the touch screen makes navigation easy. Everything works great with the phone and comes with features like Bluetooth and wi-fi connectivity.
Summary: I purchased this phone because I needed a replacement and didn't want to spend a lot of money. It works perfect on the Walmart Family Plan. Its important to realize when your buying this that it's not a newly released Android or Iphone. If you have used an Iphone or newer model smartphone you may be disappointed. It does have some positive attributes for someone wanting to save some money when buying a cell phone. It has solid construction.
Summary: I bought this phone for my husband. We used to have this phone before and it was amazing. Now on the other hand its barely usable. You can not download apps or games at all. Very poor. I would not buy this phone again.
