  • Excerpt: Around two years ago T-Mobile signed on to a grand experiment: Android. Not long after the G1 arrived. It was a smartphone with a physical keyboard, a fair amount of speed and storage — and a lot of potential.

T-Mobile G2 Review Roundup: Vanilla Android Is The Way To Go

Android Police
3 November 2010
  • Excerpt: and I'll say it again: stock Android is the way to go. I hate it when manufacturers add custom UIs, bloatware, and unnecessary lag to our beloved Android operating system, so, naturally, I was overjoyed to hear that the T-Mobile G2 would ship with a stock build of Android. Early reviewers seem to agree with this, and overall, they seem to think highly of the device. Let's take a look at some of those reviews that have been posted so far.

Expert Review

Phone Arena
29 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Yes, it's a design marvel from every aspect you look at it seeing that the T-Mobile G2 is one of the best designed smartphones in recent memory. For a while there, we were beginning to wonder if US consumers would ever see an HTC handset that rivals the Nexus One in terms of premium quality. Its metallic, tough exterior will undoubtedly radiate a sense of durability, but its Achilles Heel might be found with its hinge mechanism.
  • Pros: HSPA+ connectivity, Quality industrial design, Smart & responsive keyboard, Peppy performance
  • Cons: Questionable hinge mechanism, Poor 720p video capture

T-Mobile G2 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
18 October 2010
  • Summary: The $199 T-Mobile G2 definitely does Android proud. It combines a mostly solid design with fast overall performance and zippy data speeds (where available). We're not sure the up-and-over design for the keyboard was necessary, but T-Mobile subscribers looking for a fast and stylish QWERTY phone will find the G2 a solid successor to the original Google phone.

Mobility Digest Review: T-Mobile G2

mobilitydigest.com
7 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Not many people had love for the original G1 like T-Mobile had hope they would, but there was a soft place in my heart for it. Many viewed it as a replacement for the side kick, which it obviously wasn’t. I always viewed it as what it was, Google’s grand entrance to the mobile world. I was really excited to see rumors of a G2 coming to be, and now that it’s here; its gets a warm welcome back from me!

T-Mobile G2

MobileTechReview.com
7 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The T-Mobile G2 by HTC is undeniably the best Android smartphone with a keyboard on that network. In fact, it's one of the best keyboarded Android phones among all carriers. If you're looking for a high end Android phone that's fast, handsomely made (aside from the loosey-goosey hinge design) and has 4G data speeds, the G2 is your answer on T-Mobile. Would we pick it over the also excellent Samsung Vibrant?
  • Pros: Extremely fast, large hardware keyboard, latest Android OS with Flash video., Extremely fast, large and excellent hardware keyboard, latest Android OS with Flash video. Sharp display, solid GPS.
  • Cons: A bit heavy, odd hinge mechanism may bother some, tethering feature is removed., A bit heavy, odd hinge mechanism may bother some, WiFi hotspot tethering feature is removed. Where is that 4 gigs of internal storage-- gone to prevent rooting the phone. Speakerphone isn't good.
