T-Mobile G2 Review


While the whole Europe will soon be shocked with the launch of such devices as  HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire Z, US is rocking with already available T-Mobile G2. Simply saying this is an American version of  HTC Desire Z. The release of the handset was...

T-Mobile G2 Hands On (Video)


The road for one of the popular gadgets of T-Mobile was rather bushy. Everything started with a list of rumors, which were later followed by a list of shots, most of which were later announced to be fake, then came up the first descriptions of the...

T-Mobile G2 Review


The $199 T-Mobile G2 definitely does Android proud. It combines a mostly solid design with fast overall performance and zippy data speeds (where available). We're not sure the up-and-over design for the keyboard was necessary, but T-Mobile subscribers...

Snappy performer, Spacious keyboard, Fast HSPA+ data, Excellent call quality, Long battery life

Comes pre-loaded with several apps that can't be removed, Hinge design raises durability concerns, Tethering disabled

T-Mobile G2 review


It's been a long road to the T-Mobile G2 (and this review). Just two years ago, Android made its entrance into the smartphone market with the G1, a partnership with the fourth-place carrier, and a lot of promises about keeping things open. Since then...

Great industrial design ; Full QWERTY keyboard feels great ; Very fast

Android not completely stock ; Hinge problems could annoy some ; A bit bulky

T-Mobile G2 review: T-Mobile G2


With all the Android devices that have come out in the past year, it's surprising that the T-Mobile G1 , the first Android phone to ever hit the market, is just now getting a successor. After all, it's been two years since the G1 debuted, which is an...

The T-Mobile G2 boasts a premium design and easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard. It's the first smartphone to support T-Mobile's HSPA+ network, and offers speedy performance and good call quality. It ships running Android 2.2 with the stock Android interface.

The G2 doesn't offer tethering or mobile hot spot capabilities. We have some concerns about the slider hinge.

Some minor issues aside, the T-Mobile G2 is one of the carrier's top Android smartphones, offering an excellent QWERTY keyboard, speed, and plenty of features.

T-Mobile G2


The screen slides with a powerful, guillotine-like snap to reveal a sweet four-row QWERTY keyboard, with a large space bar. The most intriguing thing about this keyboard is three user-customizable quick keys which can be set to launch any app. You'll...

Beautiful hardware. Feels fast. Terrific voice phone. Google Voice is tightly integrated

Some bugs. Undeletable Google bloatware. No tethering

The follow-up to the very first Google phone, the T-Mobile G2 is a powerful smartphone with a great keyboard and a hefty portion of pre-loaded Google services.

T-Mobile G2 Review


Welcome to the Android Community review of the fabled T-Mobile G2. Truly a lovely little piece of work with a Snapdragon MSM7230 processor, Android 2.2 Froyo, 4G speeds, and what I'll tell you right now is a very nice still camera situation. Before you...

This is the phone I reach for now. I’ve got several phone lying around, all of them connected to the internet and capable of calling and texting (most of them here because I’ve reviewed or are about to review them,) and this is the one I constantly put...
