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: Hey. It's just a machine plague. HTC G1 Bought two pieces, myself and my wife. Problems with it no very reliable interesting phone despite the fact that long ago released. Among the new do not see a decent replacement. And many people ask where I bought such a wonderful phone. Gladly use all the features, and all night I miss him. In the morning he wakes me makes me very happy.
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.
Not a game-changer, but very solid and easy to use.

Summary: Very pleased with the unit. At the price I wanted to pay for a second celly, I expected to get a used one. Quite surprised to get a new one. I'd had a G1 before, and although battery life is somewhat abyssmal, mine was very reliable n easy to use. Just get a couple extra batteries and a car charger. Don't bog it down with every power eating app under the sun; it aint no iphone. BUT, if youre more about texting and low impact surfing, it's a decent celly.
Summary: It's a beautiful phone with a great organization of data, the only bad thing is that it comes with Android version 1.6 and it is a too old version to download good apps that there are today at the market.
Great phone for new android users or experienced users. Great price!

Summary: The HTC G1 (Dream) is the first android phone, although its age it has a lot of features that phones have now. Although a bit outdated its capabilities are still great. If you take the time to root the phone you can use it to its full capabilities. If you buy a used one I recommend buying an extended battery for it since the age of the phone the battery should be worn out and its just a normal thing for batteries to die out after a few years.
No longer a viable android phone option as of 12/2012

Summary: I have used this model for almost 5 years. As of December 2012, this phone now loses battery power at 3X the rate it used to. This is just on standby and with all background data usage disabled. It was an abrupt change at a single point in time when it started on my first phone. I bought a good used one and it uses battery power at the same rate.
Summary: Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product... Great product...
