HTC Magic Android Powered Mobile Phone

12 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The first Android mobile handset to make it here before all the rest (or few to follow) is HTC’s No. 2 for the OS – The Magic. If you’re as perplexed about the name, let me know. The introduction of the Android OS into the Indian market was to be a really big deal, but sadly I don’t see it yet. Where’s the excitement? Airtel is the one who had brought us the Magic (no Pun intended I assure you) and here’s what all the fuss is all about.

Rogers HTC Magic Video Review

9 May 2014
  • Excerpt: We’ve been playing around with the HTC Dream since launch date to give this device a good go around. This is one of two phones that Rogers released with Google’s Android platform – the other is the HTC Dream. When I did the unboxing it reminded me a great deal of the iPhone packaging, simple, clean a only comes with the necessities. In fact, the Magic has some similarities to the iPhone and comes the closest to date of what people call the “iPhone Killer”.

Android Community Reviews the HTC Magic

19 December 2012
  • Excerpt: For a long time now, Android and the T-Mobile G1 have been pretty much synonymous, defining not only form-factor but functionality of what makes a “Google Phone”.  Gatecrashing that arrangement comes the HTC Magic, second Android smartphone to reach the market and the slimmer, prettier sibling to the G1, bringing with it the latest iteration of the Google OS, version 1.5 “Cupcake”.

HTC Magic Review: In Depth

18 February 2010
  • Excerpt: The second Google phone arrives: smarter looks, a neater shape and a better button layout. It uses the improved latest Android software (version 1.5, sweetly called Cupcake). Android is slick and effective, like the Magic’s impressive touchscreen. Music is not so good, mind. What we like The Magic is a highly enjoyable phone to use. The screen looks good (though it lacks the iPhone’s colour richness) and the Google text box dominates.

Short Review: Rogers HTC Magic

14 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Since we did a review on the Rogers HTC Dream, I’ve decided that there really isn’t any point to do a full on review of the Rogers HTC Magic because both are the exact same software wise. That being said, we still like to cover the Magic because of all that can’t decide between the Rogers HTC Magic or the Rogers HTC Dream.

HTC Magic Review

28 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The second device launched by the joint-venture HTC and Google – HTC Magic aka G2, suggests that the new Android-branded phones have great potential on the smartphone market. Updated to the latest firmware version, including Cupcake 1.5, HTC Magic is now shadowed by its new brother, HTC Hero, which features the new Sense GUI developed by the Taiwanese manufacturer.
  • Pros: Besides the fact that Android performs as one of the best operating systems for mobile platforms, especially in terms of speed and stability, I would also like to mention the stylish design of the device and the improvements that have been made to the camera. HTC Magic has a good value for money, which can be a real threat for iPhone's sales, especially given that HTC fans have more devices to choose from.
  • Cons: There are still some basic features that the Android misses at the moment, such as: the Flash for the integrated browser, the compatibility with multi-gestures and Bluetooth data transfers. Besides that, I think a better autonomy of the battery would've been great, even though its capacity has been improved since the first Android device. Sales Package HTC Magic handset; 2GB microSD Card; 1340 mAh Li-Ion Battery; Charger; USB Cable; Leather case.
