T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Review

Digitaltrends
14 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Samsung and T-Mobiles’ Sidekick 4G may resemble the Sidekicks of old, but it’s taken an Android-sized leap forward. This is the first Sidekick with a touchscreen and follows in the footsteps of its ancestors well. Still, it’s not without a large number of quirks, some annoying, others just odd.
  • Pros: Great keyboard, Clear phone calls, useful text apps, Satisfying screen “kick”, Inexpensive
  • Cons: Outdated Android 2.2 install, Custom user interface doesn't enhance Android, Awkward button, audio jack placement, Anemic camera, Poor 4G speeds, Unnecessary touch pad

Android Police
1 May 2011
  • Excerpt: We all remember the T-Mobile Sidekick. It was the phone to have back before smartphones were a normal, everyday thing. It was the phone that did all the smartphone-y things first. It was built for one main purpose, though; messaging like a demon.
