don't get it unless it's cheap or free

  • Summary: a little confusing. there's features i don't like about it. it tends to leave every program you access and back out of running and lagging the processor. volume touch slider is a bit unusual too. positioned where it is i'm either turning the volume up with my fingers or down with my thumb during calls. the 5 way directional selector occasionally gets confused and backs out of an app instead of moving left or right.

  • Excerpt: I really like the way this phone looks.  unfortunately, it feels very awkward when you are typing.  The right side is bigger than the left so your hands are off centered.  The other thing that is kind of annoying is that the touch screen seems to pick the wrong place quite a bit.  My fingers are not that huge, but it's annoying to click the wrong thing when you are browsing the web.

Battery life not so great

  • Excerpt: I got this phone too soon. I understand that they have gotten better now. But I have been very very disappointed in mine. It was just too expensive and too disappointing the battery would give out too fast...should have just gotten the I phone. I just wanted to stay with the same carrier and not have to pay to get out of contract...in the end big mistake.

HTC G1 Android Brown Cell Phone

  • Excerpt: This smart phone (HTC - G1 Android Smartphone Brown Cell Phone) is not good in my opinion as it only has 192 megabytes of random allocated memory(RAM) this is terrible by today's standards. An iphone 4g comes with about 512 megabytes. The camera does not come with flash, which means no pictures anywhere that is even slightly dark. Let's not forget it's android and therefore it has a horrible touch screen lag.

Outdated Phone

  • Excerpt: I got my Tmobile G1 when the phone first came out. As the first android phone, it was nice being the first to use a new operating system for smartphones. However, google made a mistake when partitioning hard drive space on the phone. They didn't leave enough space for upgrades to new Android versions and Tmobile wasn't able to update it using an over the air update, leaving users having to resort to rooting their phone to upgrade.

  • Summary: Old technology, very touchy, low internal memory, and the physical keyboard is fine until you touch it and then when the back light comes on, you can't see they keys. Ok for the money if you want to dabble in some android technology, but it's a real hoopty compared to modern phones. You get what you pay for.

All in all, exercise precaution with refurb/used, I now hate this phone lol

  • Summary: I know they no longer make the dash, but I used to own one a couple years ago and LOVED it. Since I no longer have my old dash, I found this one on-line on ebay and was super excited. However, it was refurbished, supposed to have been set back to factory settings, but this dash(obviously a different one than the one i had previously owned, a newer model I think) just was not the same.

HTC G1 (T-Mobile) - OK if you like Android.

harborpower, Ebay
19 September 2010
  • Summary: Though this phone did everything it was supposed to do, it has some drawbacks. This version does not work with Exchange Server. You need to use Touchdown, which does not really integrate well into the phone. If you need Exchange Server support, don't get this phone. To "activate" the phone you need to log into your Google account, and there is no way to get around that (unless you are a computer expert).
