Mytouch kit

  • Summary: The kit arrived very fast, and it was a great buy. The only problem I had was that the home charger made my phone do weird things when it was plugged ( screen jumping, freezing), but thankfully I didn't need it. Otherwise it's great!

HTC Magic from Vodafone

raymondphill, HandCellPhone

  • Summary: Very intuitive. Decided on Magic because I only got a 32GB i-pod touch last year. Android app store not as goo as Apple's, with the majority very US-centric. It hooks up with your home WiFi network like a dream! Synchronization with Google contacts and calendar is dead easy! Problems? The only major ones relate to the music plater.

could have been better

  • Excerpt: The phone atracteted me with its Android OS but that was basiclly it. Hopefully the new updates of the OS would make it worth the money and broaden its limited functionality.
  • Pros: Android OS
  • Cons: No flash,, no 3.5mm jack,, the RAM is only 192Mb,, no video calling,, no Radio

  • Summary: It's almost impossible to comment on this, it really is brilliant but thoroughly annoying at the same time. You would do best to read my review to decide for yourself.
  • Pros: Very pleasant to use and navigate, free with £30 Vodafone contract
  • Cons: Many features missing from Vodafone version, lacks basic software

the HTC magic, a rival to the iPhone

mjbudden, Ciao
13 February 2010
  • Excerpt: "...a go on both the HTC magic and the Apple iPhone, both of which are good phones, but the HTC magic i found is the better phone, due to the HTC magic not being tied down the iTunes you are able to have alot more freedom with the phone, vodafone is a brilliant network to have with this phone as you will find that you have very high signal almost any where you go. the buttons on the phone are simple yet brilliant, the track ball is a nice feature to have ...
  • Pros: amount of apps, good rival to iphone, smaller than iphone
  • Cons: battery life dies quickly if using apps for a while

  • Summary: This is a great little phone. it's slick, quick and oh so sensitive (tip: lock the screen before pocketing it or random things will happen). The display is bright and crisp, and even 60 year-old eyes can read the fine print, and it does everything you'd expect from a phone and a bit more. Syncs effortlessly with Google Mail and Calendar (if you haven't got them, why not?) and the browser (based on Google Chrome?) is pretty quick too, if you've got a good signal.
  • Pros: Crisp, clean display
  • Cons: Minor quibbles but nothing seriously wrong with the magic

Feel the Magic

galaxynic..., Ciao
23 November 2009
  • Excerpt: "Feel the Magic The HTC Magic is my current phone and I love it! It's exclusive to Vodafone and it is the next gen of the T-Mobile's G1. ... Overview of HTC Magic ... Design: It's sleek and white. It's completely touch unlike the G1 that had a push up keyboard. It had Home key, Menu, Back button, Search key and the normal green and red call buttons. In the middle of the phone at the bottom, you have a roller ball. It's like the ones you ...
  • Pros: Internet, Apps

  • Summary: Outstanding!!!! I have used all mobile operating systems including the iphone and Android beats them hands down. Very user friendly, seamlessly smooth and slick. Great phone with excellent build quality. Even the lowly 3.2 peggy mitchell camera takes a half decent snap. Dont hesitate, and most importantly don't get sucked in by the iphone hype. BUY ONE TODAY!!!
  • Pros: Android is the bas OS on the market.
  • Cons: No FM radio
