Excerpt: I got this phone about four months ago from with a limited data and unlimited texting plan. It comes in red, black, and white and weighs about 5 oz. It’s touch screen is about four inches and has two cameras, one above the touch screen in the front and …
Excerpt: This is a review of T-Mobile myTouch 4G which is available right now at the contract price of $200 and it is the latest high end android device offered from T-Mobile and follows after recent devices like the T-Mobile G2.
Excerpt: I bought this phone back in Aug of 2013.I liked the phone the 3 weeks it worked. I was out of town at a wedding and the only way I know it wasn't working was because my family could not reach me.I received a call on in room phone wondering why I wasn't answering my phone. I looked then and saw the missed calls from my handicapped sister that needed my help to get ready. The speaker went out.
Excerpt: I have had this device for about a year and a half, and frankly; I'm on the wall about it. Its decent for an entry level smartphone but there are a lot of flaws that were overlooked in development of this. The processor honestly is too small. Yes its a Qualcomm, but its dog slow and gets flustered easily. As the User above me said, don't download a ton of apps, because It WILL slow down massively.
Pros: Screen, Keyboard, Front facing camera, Great social networking, Beautiful looking SMS threads., Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Yelp already preloaded, Decent camera, Great loudspeaker., Fast Internet Browser
Cons: Fuzzy pictures, Cant delete preloaded apps, Battery life, Slow, Lags A LOT, Lacking Android 4.1, Flimsy., All plastic, Easily Scratched screen, Small Processor
Summary: I had a G2 that i loved and the screen went out so i had to get it replaced. It was covered under warranty so that was good. only 20 dollar warranty fee. The T-mobile agent i talked to offered me the mytouch 4g as a substitue and i thought to myself "sure, why not. its something new." that was a mistake. as soon as i got the phone i disliked it. it was slow and somewhat unresponsive.
Summary: Overall this is a nice phone, the only drawback is the battery life.
Pros: Decent Camera, good feel, user friendy OS, tons of FREE apps unlike the iphone where you have to pay for the apps, gps and wifi are very good features., Hands free device and 8 GB SD memory card included.
Cons: Poor Battery, you would think with today's technology they would have designed a longer lasting battery., Bad static when using hands free device.
Summary: The fun part! I bought this phone to be connected while I prepared for deployment. There was a ruggedized MyTouch that I considered getting, but it did not have a forward facing camera for video chat while I was still stateside. I really struggled with that decision because the MT4G feels substantial, but fragile. My worries were completely baseless!
Pros: SURPRISINGLY DURABLE, Easy to hold, slender design with well placed buttons, decent navigation, front and rear camera, wifi hotspot, packed with fun and useful features, beautiful display, very good outdoor photos
Cons: All the usual: poor battery life, average speakers, crappy indoor photos, yadda-yadda. What kills the amazing nature of this phone is the lousy Qik video chat software, which is nearly useless. It is the ONLY disappointing feature of this phone.
Will miss its great features when I get my next phone
6 March 2012
Summary: I've been using the MyTouch 4G for over a year. This was my first Android phone and was pleasantly surprised when I first got it in March 2011. Prior to this smartphone I was using a Nokia E73 with its Symbian software. I was blown away at how fast this phone was in regards to data speeds and navigating the user interface. The 3.8" screen size was perfect for me and couldn't complain about its bright display.
Pros: Fast data speeds, good amount of RAM (768MB), dedicated camera button, optical trackpad and physical buttons are a nice touch, wi-fi calling, decent screen, single-core 1 GHz snapdragon still holding up in a time of dual and quad core processors
Cons: Heavy, battery cover paint chipping off, microUSB charger on the side of phone is awkward (prefer it to be on top or bottom), camera and speakerphone quality
