HTC Magic Review: In Depth

Recombu
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.

HTC's Magic -- the company's second Android smartphone -- improves on the earlier HTC Dream

Good Gear Guide.au
4 March 2010
  • Summary: HTC's Magic, available on 3 Mobile, has corrected many faults of the previous Dream, making it an excellent smartphone on the whole. The lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack is disappointing and the Android Market is still in its infancy with no paid apps available, but the Android OS has massive potential.
  • Pros: Stylish design, responsive touch screen, Android platform, notifications and status bar, excellent integration with Google services, Android Market app store, polished Web browser, Microsoft Exchange and PDF/document viewer out of the box
  • Cons: No 3.5mm headphone jack, mediocre non-Gmail e-mail support, no over-the-air updates, no geotagging

12 May 2009
  • Excerpt: So much anticipation, excitement and fervour surrounded its launch that, in hindsight, it was hardly surprising the first Google phone didn't quite come up to scratch. But it didn't do itself any favours: the G1 lacked the glamour the first Android phone ought to have had, and poor battery life sealed its fate.

HTC Magic

ZDNet
27 March 2009
  • Summary: Parts of the phone are as the name suggests, magic. The design, the touchscreen and the internet experience are all first class. But the absence of outstanding multimedia seriously jeopardises the success of this latest Android.
  • Pros: Excellent touchscreen, Sleek design, Great web browser, Access to Android app store
  • Cons: Poor multimedia options, No 3.5mm headphone socket or adapter
