No longer a viable android phone option as of 12/2012
12 February 2013
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.
Fast deliver, but phone second used one I bought with key stuck
2 February 2013
Summary: Phone is okay. Keys get stuck. I would not recommend this phone to anyone because of the keys gettting stuck all the time. Maybe others have been okay but thisis the second phone that did this too me.
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.
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.
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.
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.
