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. All in all, while we like the screen and keyboard, the Sidekick 4G tries too hard to be different.
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Cons: Outdated Android 2.2 install, Custom user interface doesn't enhance Android, Awkward button, audio jack placement, Anemic camera, Poor 4G speeds, Unnecessary touch pad
