This a review for T-Mobile's myTouch 3G Slide by HTC.
It is a nice middle of the line Android phone. You cannot compare the screen estate or raw crunching power to the top of the line Androids, but neither are you paying the premium price with this.
Nice things about it are that T-Mobile has promised to update it to the latest 2.2 version this year, although the 2.1 isn't bad either. And the HTC's Sense UI is actually very responsive. The keyboard is very nice keyboard too, a great improvement from the old G1's keyboard, but not quite at G2's level. The screen is bright and easy to read in the sunlight too. Although it does get greasy quite easily. I don't know how they manage to resist that in the iPhones, but they do it better. Albeit being a capasitive touch screen, its still not in par with the iPhone's, but well above any resistive screens I've tried. The camera is 5 Mpix autofocus with LED-light. It tends to overexpose a bit, which can be compensated manually though. The camera also shoots video at VGA resolution, 30 fps. It has the mandatory three buttons and a genius-button at the front, as well as a touch sensitive navigation butoon also, which I find mostly annoying. Naturally it has the volume-rocker and a dedicated camera button. Latter of which the iPhone is still missing. Unlike early myTouch's this does have a regular 3.5 mm audio jack again, and you charge/connect to computer it through a microUSB.
Like all Androids you have to be carefull what apps you install, as most of them seem to be done by pimple-faced teens who have no knowledge in proper program design. And as such these apps will hung your Android phone usually sooner than later, or simply just make it act funny. But with good quality apps designed and produced by professional crew, the phone is solid and responsive with the Android 2.1.
One gripe I do have about it though is the poor battery management. You have to keep on switching the Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G and syncing on and off manually to make it through a busy work day. This is something the iPhone has done so much better for years! I do hope that 2.2 will bring some sense into this too.
All in all I can recommend this phone as a reasonably priced Android phone. It does everything a high-end phone does at fraction of the cost. And best of all being a late model, it's supported by T-Mobile.
I was looking for a new phone supporting AWS (UMTS Band IV, 1700Mhz) for Wind Mobile Canada.
As I already have experienced some Android phones and found this platform superior (despite being loyal user and fan of Windows Mobile for 5+ years) I chosen MyTouch 3G. Actually it is operator's version of HTC Magic.
It is definitely good phone, solid and reliable.
Maybe one can find some cheaper Chinese Android device like SciPhone, but legendary proven HTC design and quality are worth spending couple of dollars more.
So if you need decent Android phone and don't feel comfortable spend over $500 for Nexus One, have at look at this maybe not-that-fancy but still great and powerful cell phone.

I love my Wing, the design, the size, the color and the applications. However, I hate the fact that in 3 years time I have probably gone through 4 or 5 of them usually because some aspect of it fails, the touch screen, the menu buttons, the back door doesn't stay on, the phone freezes, on and on. Additionally one of the main reasons that I bought it for (using the programs like Outlook, mobile word and adding applications) is not really possible because the memory is just not sufficient enough to do it. There are some solutions out there like purchasing a microSD card with high storage capacity and install your applications on there, but if your not that computer savvy this can seem daunting in an of itself. The camera I've never been able to get a really good picture with but I don't really use it that often.
Anyway for whatever reason I still love my Wing; maybe it's the Qwerty keyboard, the excellent t-mobile service, the slide-out keyboard, the great organization that comes with the tasks feature and the calendar with its reminder function, the internet access, the video playback ability or the MP-3 player. Additionally it's really easy to sync it with your computer using ActiveSync, a major plus for me because as I said I'm not that computer savvy at all.
I don't know something keeps me buying one (potentially gonna fail) Wing after another. Maybe it's just that I haven't found another phone that links all of the features I love so much together as well as the Wing has done.
It's my Love/Hate relationship with the Wing!!
I absolutely love this phone! The expandable sd card memory is great! You dont have to worry about how much memory is being used on the phone because all the extra stuff( like pictures,mp3 music,videos,and ebooks)are stored on the sd card. Your sd card gets full...buy another card! Not another phone! I love how you can use any song from your mp3 music as a ringtone! Thousands of Apps for FREE!!! Even games!!! Free App for free background/wallpaper scenes, free App for free ringtones! Free internet radio...no commercials! Free GPS!!! You can find just about anything in the android market for...FREE! I am with AT&T and only spend $20 a month for unlimited internet access AND 200 text messages each month. All I did was buy an unlocked phone and entered in the internet settings for AT&T and it works great! I have over 65 Apps on my phone and guess what..? They were all free! Useful stuff too...Like CalorieCounter, Healthyrecipes, WeatherChannel, Radar, Pandora radio, Tv.com, ebay, Lightning bug sleep sounds, and I absolutely love the Aldiko ebook reader! My sisters IPHONE does NOT compare to this phone! The only thing that I like better on the Iphone is the camera functions...its easier to slide through your pictures on the Iphone than it is to get through them on the mytouch. But the mytouch has a 3.2MP camera compared to the Iphones 1.3MP. I would rather have the better pictures...Thank you to HTC for making such a wonderful, user-friendly phone! Love the MERLOT color!
