Excerpt: They're back, and this time they're made by Huawei. The T-Mobile myTouch and myTouch Q are the affordable Android smartphone twins for summer. These new models replace the LG manufactured last generation myTouches; and yes it's confusing that the names never change even though the phones do.
Pros: Affordable smartphones at feature phone prices. The myTouch Q has an increasingly rare QWERTY hardware keyboard.
Cons: Single core CPUs, occasional lag, old OS version.
Excerpt: I have wanted to like Android for quite some time. I really did. I kept trying device after device hoping that the next device would be “the one”. Sadly, that never seemed to happen.
Pros: Heavy and well-constructed; crisp middle-of-the-road screen size; physical buttons; good back camera, usable front camera; holds signal well; T-Mobile customizations add to ease of use; Genius Button/Dragon Dictation make this a great device to use on the go; rubber on sides makes it comfortable ...
Cons: Battery life is average; speaker is horrid; already “old technology”; Android 2.2

Pros: Beautiful sunburst finish. Included accessories match the phone. Slick touch screen.
Excerpt: For the last several days I’ve had the opportunity to review T-Mobile’s latest HSPA+ phone (which they’re billing as 4G): the myTouch 4G. I haven’t been particularly impressed with the older siblings in the myTouch family, and brought that scepticism with me.
Excerpt: T-Mobile myTouch 4G was released on November 3 and hit the markets as another Android powered high-end smartphone, which comes with quite powerful features to give users fully enjoyable performance. By many considered…

Pros: Brilliant display, Streamlined solid construction, HSPA+ connectivity, Ability to do video calls, Responsive and quick performance
