Excerpt: It's an okay phone. It lasted me a long time, but then the screen kinda stopped changing to landscape mode when I slid the keyboard out. At the time, it was one of the fastest phones and I loved it. It definitely hasn't aged well though.
Summary: I am a T-Mobile customer so I had no problems with this phone. Just put in my sim card and it worked. A lot better than paying 3x the amount for a similar phone. The battery life could be a little better but over all I am happy with it.
the phone is fun to play with, but i hate t-mobile service.

Summary: this is my first ever smart phone. for starters T-MOBILE SERVICE IS AWFUL! i miss my Virgin Mobile service, but they don't offer smart phones on the prepaid plans. EVERYTHING runs on internet, which burns up your allotted MB within a few days. the phone itself is nice, but freezes quite a bit. the power on/off button is sensitive, so the phone turns itself off and on a lot in my pocket. battery life is quite bad. only 1-2 hours of use. standby time about 15hrs.
Summary: The myTouch 3G Slide is a great phone for those new to android, and good for those who already have a good android experience. The QWERTY keyboard and the optical track pad make it even easier to use. Definitely a phone I would recommend.
I recommend, simply put. It's not an iphone but it does everything well.

Summary: I would say this phone in car terms is like a bottom of the line Mercedes E class or BMW 5 series. It's able to have all the features for the most part that a high end smart phone should have but isn't the high end flagship model. It's able to fake it well. Having owned 2 previous android devices, the mytouch 3g and the motorola charm, and being able to play with friends' high end android phones such as the htc evo 4g and the samsung epic.
