Toshiba TG01 review

 

Can the most powerful mobile phone ever built compete with the iPhone?

Large touchscreen ; Pocket friendly ; Good organiser ; Novel design

Poor OS ; Slow to re-orientate screen ; Underpowered internet browser ; Complicated menus ; Video quality not as expected

A good concept ruined by too many mistakes - there's only so much the Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade can fix.

Toshiba TG01 Windows Mobile Smartphone

 

With a super fast processor onboard and huge touch-screen, is this the new king of smartphones?

Toshiba TG01 review

 

Yet for all its amazing looks and that 4.1in (800x800-pixel) screen, when the Toshiba TG01 finally launched, it failed to ignite.

The Toshiba TG01 a truly amazing device on which to watch an HD video trailer or the latest glammed up pop video. The sound is good too, but for one-person entertainment rather than talking to anyone at the other end. And this is the Toshiba TG01’s...

Great hardware, screen and design, but it's expensive and let down by Windows Mobile's dated interface.

The Toshiba TG01 boasts one of the biggest touchscreens we've seen on a mobile (4.1-inch). According to Toshiba, the TG01 has been optimised to run multiple applications while conserving battery power…

Toshiba TG01 mobile phone

 

The TG01 was the first smartphone to use Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon processor -- followed in short order by HTC's Touch HD2. It's a seriously fast chip, and is the first we've seen capable of running Windows Phone smoothly -- the TG01's installed 6.5...

Toshiba - TG01

 

Toshiba is known for laptop computers but not so much for phones and smartphones. Its TG01 is a Windows Mobile smartphone with some good points and some very irritating ones. The physical design is both ...

With its huge screen and fast processor the TG01 ought to be a ground-breaking, exciting device. It is the former, but a poor user interface means is definitely not the latter, which is a great pity.

Toshiba TG01 Review

 

The latest smartphone from Toshiba is nothing if not eye-catching. It's very thin – just under 1cm from front to back – and has a huge, 4.1-inch screen. It's unmissable from front-on.

The screen is great, but how much better it would have been if it used the same technology as the iPhone. Toshiba’s interface is fun, though surprisingly slow given the speedy Snapdragon processor. The camera’s not bad and the screen playback of photos...

Toshiba TG01 review

 

The Toshiba TG01 is by far one of the largest mobiles I have seen in a long while and Toshiba will be hoping it can manage to live up to its large reputation in more ways than just its size. The Toshiba TG01 What's in the box?...

Toshiba TG01 smartphone

 

It's big and it's thin and fast, but it can be a bugger to use.

The size and layout of the Toshiba TG01 take a bit of getting used to, and its good points include that huge screen, wafer thin profile and high functionality count. The trouble is, it's just not that easy to use, from the unresponsive touch screen to...
