Review: Huawei myTouch and myTouch Q for T-Mobile
The included messaging tools on the myTouch are mostly the stock Android options. That includes email, Gmail, Google+, Google+ Messenger, Google Talk, and the regular old SMS app. These all behave just as they do on every other Android phone.
There's also a T-Mobile email application, and a completely independent Yahoo email application. Both work fine for delivering email to the myTouch and can be used to read, send, reply, and all that. They're not as elegant or powerful as the native Gmail application, though.
As for social networking, both Facebook and Twitter are pre-installed.
Perhaps the most unique feature to the myTouch is the T-Mobile MobileLife Organizer app. The tool is meant to help families share a calendar and help keep everyone's schedules organized. It includes a central calendar, grocery list, to-do lists, family journal, shared photo screensaver, Android widgets, and a message board. MobileLife syncs across devices, so a change made on one is reflected on others in the same plan. In other words, if Mom decides dinner on Friday is going to be at Applebees instead of TGIFriday's, she can let everyone know at once by updating the event in the MobileLife Organizer app.The application also works with iOS and BlackBerry devices.
