HTC Magic Review: In Depth

Recombu
9 May 2009
  • 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.

16 July 2009
  • Summary: T he HTC Magic is a solid and extremely stylish mobile phone. The 3.2 Megapixel camera allows you to capture special moments at all times, offering remarkably fine pictures. The large, always well-responding touchscreen is easy to operate, although the Android menu structure does need time to get...

  • Pros: Excellent touchscreen, Sleek design, Great web browser, Access to Android app store
  • Cons: Poor multimedia options, No 3.5mm headphone socket or adapter

  • Excerpt: Before embarking on a minor rant, I should say that I ended up liking the HTC Magic, the second phone built around Google's Android operating system, and I'll be sorry to hand it back. To begin with, though, things did not go well. The first signs were positive.

PC Pro
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...

IT PRO
11 May 2009
  • Summary: If you’ve been waiting for the second generation Google phone this is a significant improvement over the G1. It’s light, generally well featured and is easy to use, but the lack of native Exchange support may put off some business users.
