Sturdy, highly useful smart phone with a functional QWERTY keyboard
The myTouch Slide is an exceptional model, with the primary advantage being its slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It is easy to type on and the slide-out mechanism makes the phone comfortable to hold with both hands (and I have large hands).
I personally appreciate the ease with which I can type out quick, or even extended, e-mails, texts, and posts on the go. The processing speed is slightly slower than the more current models and it has somewhat limited room for applications (approximately 150 MB), so I have to be somewhat choosy in which applications I want to run, but generally have two dozen or so installed.
One advantage is that the myTouch Slide is relatively sturdy. I've dropped it on pavement multiple times with nothing more than some surface scratches.
Because of the sliding mechanism it is slightly bulkier than the regular myTouch and does not accept the same protective accessories. There are split case protective covers for them but they usually only last a few months before they don't hold on anymore.
The battery typically keeps up for about a day of regular use. If you're a very light user it will last about two; for a heavy user it might only last 12 hours.
Overall it's a great phone and a pretty decent mobile computer. If you're shopping on a budget or are waiting for 4G prices to drop, I would highly recommend it.Read full review

Great affordable phone!
I like the my touch 3G. The cost made it affordable and the features had everything I want. I regularly use speech to text and picture messaging. In addition I always use navigation. I check my email when away from home and so it is at great little phone. The speed seemed adequate. I did find the battery did not last a full day if kept on and I was using Internet for navigation or pandora.

Speedy, Stunning, and Sleek!
The MyTouch 4G is a very attractive package! The super slim phone packs an impressive amount of RAM and a 1Ghz CPU to run any Android app you can find! This phone also supports bluetooth and tethering so you can take your internet with you wherever you go. This is a very attractive feature as this device is insanely fast on the internet in 4G areas! However, the speed is still exceptional in gprs and egde areas that I have had the misfortune to be in. This powerhouse of speed, precision, and cutting-edge technology is packed into a thin metal and plastic chassis which easily fits in anyone's pocket and hand.
The front-facing camera is always nice when talking to that special someone via yahoo messenger or qik. The 720P video quality the rear-facing camera provides is absolutely impressive with very exceptional quality and decent low-level lighting capabilities. The still camera appears to suffer a little in dark areas and has trouble focusing quickly in these scenarios. However, this camera is still very impressive compared to almost every other phone on the market. In normal conditions, It is nothing less than impressive! My facebook is feeling the warmth of my camera now as I upload images and videos.
All the clickey buttons and the infrared scroll sensor are nothing less than a delight and feel great under your fingertips. The headphones included are of exceptional sound quality and the controls on the wire are easy to use even though I have grown quite use to the iPhone headphones.
The included software was packaged somewhat attractively which I find to be a little ironic being the MyTouch 4G girl looks like a female version of Steve Jobbs from the 80's.. She is very ugly which, between her appearance and the minor quirks I found in T-Mobile's software, encouraged me to try out Cyanogenmod7 which was a nightmare until I got my favorite apps installed. Now, I love the phone more than ever!
One feature to love is the swype keyboard though I hear it is not for everyone. It is stock on these phones, but not in cyanogen which requires a documentationless journey for the right software.
Overall, this phone is wonderful and whether you are a phone hacking android enthusiast like me or just a basic end-user, You will be very pleased with this phone and everything it can do. With a little time in the market and some know-how, the capabilities of this phone are basically unlimited!Read full review

Great texting for a touch screen
I don't have alot of good experiences with touch screen smart phones when it comes to quality, but this was definitely worth the price. I text a lot, so the swipe feature of the phone makes texting SO much easier and faster, and you can change the settings to either work for speed or for accuracy or a little bit of both.
The screen is a little small for traditional texting (i.e. pressing keys one at a time instead of swiping), but with the swiper feature, you only really need to type one at a time to correct mistakes. I like the wifi capability, it's very simple to set up. As smartphones go, it's very easy to learn. It's very laggy when it comes to email and surfing the web, but that's what computers are for!
Overall, I definitely recommend it!
