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: 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. To my delight, the myTouch 4G has completely redeemed the family name! Let’s take a closer look at the myTouch 4G and see why it’s earned my respect.
Pros: + Spectacularly fast in everyday use
Cons: - Wi-Fi calling isn’t practical over 802.11b or “crowded” hotspots
Conclusion: You won't see this pretty, limited-edition myTouch 3G phone everywhere, and its included apps are fun; just know that underneath the surface lies some outdated hardware and an old version of Android.
Pros: Beautiful sunburst finish. Included accessories match the phone. Slick touch screen.
Summary: The myTouch by LG is certainly a feature-packed device. An AMOLED display, HD video capture, a front-facing camera, and 4G are things that you can get with all mid-range devices. However, overall performance was somewhat disappointing. Though I generally make concessions for mid-range devices since it's unreasonable and unrealistic to expect perfection from a device like this, I still found myself frustrated at times.
Excerpt: The myTouch 4G touch screen phone gives you a long-lasting battery life while you surf the web and play Rock Band. You can go hands-free on this phone with the Genius options that allow you to call, text, search the internet and more. The myTouch phone comes with an expandable 8GB of storage. It runs on Android 2.2 and has a single-core processor.
