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.
Summary: I got the phone within the week i ordered it. I personally didn't like the phone. It was kind of slow, and it needed an update. I dont know how to do updates, so my boyfriend sold it to his friend who knows how to work with phones. His friend says after he updated it, it was a wonderful phone!
Excerpt: I have had my phone since December. I traded in my Blackberry for the G1 as a Christmas gift. I like the look of the phone and the touch screen. After having it only 4 months, I noticed that the server is slow quite often and while I am browsing the internet it will sometimes lock up and close out the browser. The only thing I like about it over the Blackberry is the youtube access.
Excerpt: I have had this phone for almost 2 years now. When I first got it I thought it was the perfect phone (keeping in mind it was my first smartphone). Advertised as the top competitor to the iPhone that couldn't be further from the truth. The phone has had several upgrades but after each upgrade the phone seemed to be much more sluggish and the battery started to die much faster.
Excerpt: I traded in my Apple I-Phone for the new G1 cause it was meant for my carrier T-Mobile and looked like it would be amazing. It is a good phone, but it has it's flaws! It's difficult to use, hard to navigate. Pictures don't come out to well and forget about downloading music. You have to use use I Tunes and then filter it through their "android" system. I miss my IPhone!
Excerpt: the g1 has a very small touch keypad on the screen causing ppl to press the wrong button. but the reg qwerty keypad is good very easy to push the buttons. there good about the phone because you get alot of free applicaions all you haveto do is download yhen and the same for the games. there are some very interesting applications for this phone and some very fun appplications as well.
good first android phone, but not an iPhone killer
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I have had this phone for a while now, and for the most part it is a great phone. When it first came out, nobody had the specifications it had on an Android device. The camera was great, although it was fairly slow and produced mediocre video. It has GPS which works great with Google Navigate and maps. The capacitive touchscreen is very similar to the iPhone, despite it being a little smaller.
Excerpt: I have owned a few smartphones over the years and the HTC G1 is certainly the one I purchased most recently. As smartphones go, it isn't at the head of the class, but it isn't exactly riding the short bus either. It performs well across a number of areas, but has its problems too. The good: I like the Android operating system a lot.
Excerpt: I'm one of the earlier adapter to T-Mobile G1. After almost two years of use and if given the choice again I probably would not get the G1. Initially all was swell. Fast, open source Android platform, multitask capability. After gone through several OTA firmware updates, things started to get worse with each updates. I've downloaded (and purchased) several applications. Seems like the phone just get slower and slower each day.
Excerpt: I love my android!! Now I am not a really educated person regarding technology so my favorite things about this phone may be very common on many phones nowadays but I will still share my thoughts with you! My favorite things about this phone incude: the camera, the ability to search the web, the memory, the listen options, and pandora. I love being able to download certain radio broadcasts I try and listen to everyday.
