Fantastic Phone even after three years
Love this phone so much I'm thinking about buying one as a spare for me and one for my wife who needs a new phone. I've been using this phone for over 3 years and can't say enough good about it! Very durable, crashes once in a while like every other phone...drops 1 out of 100 calls, has so many features it's nuts. The egenius button allows me to send a text, call or search anything by just pushing the button and telling the phone what I want to do. VERY COOL FEATURE. The one thing I don't like is the speaker on the phone for hands free could be louder so I use the earbud. I bought one of the early phones so this may be better on later phones....also there are apps you can download that boost the speaker volume which I have never done. Also if you are on Tmobile you can do internet VOIP calls and it doesn't go against your minutes. The first battery lasted over two and a half years...replaced it and the phone works like new! It was crashing prior to even though it showed a decent charge. Almost forgot to say what an amazing camera it has...takes HD pictures, has burst, action, night auto modes. This phone takes as good a picture as some of the $1000 Nikon's I've owned, not joking. The 8 gigs of memory is holding over 3000 pictures from my last two vacations. Its a great phone.Read full review
My first smart phone
This is my first smart phone. Works great, both on Wi-Fi and cell 4G. I use T-Mobile pay as you go. With all the available Wi-Fi around I rarely have to use the 4G for internet. It also has a real GPS (not just a A-GPS) so you can use the navigator apps without 4G or Wi-Fi connected. I did purchase a larger battery (3500maH for $8). I now get a solid 3 days of battery with average use. With its quad band I will use it in England on Tesco SIM Card (like I did my dumb phone). Plus I purchased a 16 GB (phone will take a 32GB) memory card. Apps will install on the 16 GB card as well as the internal storage. Very happy with the phone. Why are people paying 3 times more for phone is beyond me.
Overall great product
Best phone I have purchased so far. I bought this phone because my old smart phone had too many annoying glitches. This one is Really fast, has good quality video and seems to be able to handle most apps. It also has a great 8 megapixel camera with a screen that can show just how good it is. The only problem would be the battery life. It does so much that it drains energy really fast. If you want a phone like this to last long on one charge, I would suggest knowing how to completely close apps you're not using. It runs a lot of apps in the background and will run game apps(and apps that have no need to run unless using them) in the background if you don't close them properly. Serious waste of energy. Besides that. It keeps up with the other 4G phones. I recommend this phone for those who love android smartphones but don't which to have their phone do to much at once. It will kill the battery and give you a negative view of the phone. I also recommend it for those who love touch screens and full keyboards.Read full review
Durable, I'm ADDICTED!
Love this phone. I got mad and slammed my phone on my granite table and cracked the screen(I was trying to break it). It didn't even drop the call so its made very well. . .Its slowly starting to have issues. Its only a little more to buy it used and in good condition than it is to fix the damage I did so I'm not even buying another phone. I want another MyTouch 4G Slide in Khaki. I wont even change my color!! I'm addicted to this phone!!
Excellent phone with light weight keyboard. Does not feel bulky at all. Nice slick look. Great camera with auto focus with half press. Good use for regular usage.
