Review: T-Mobile myTouch 4G
If you bought the original myTouch 3G from T-Mobile last year, run to your nearest T-Mobile store Right. Now. and buy the T-Mobile myTouch 4G. It has a better screen, better software, better battery life, faster internet speeds, more features, and is a worthy replacement for your mid 2009-era Android kit.
The hardware of the myTouch 4G never gets in the way, call quality is OK, but the Super LCD screen and respectable battery life make it tons more useful than the original myTouch 3G.
HTC has actually addressed some of Android's media issues on the myTouch 4G. The camera software is better than the stock Android kit, and HTC's integration of an FM radio and Slacker Radio into the native media player is sheer genius.
The browsing experience is lickety-split when HSPA+ is available. According to T-Mobile, it will cover 200 million Americans by the end of 2010 with HSPA+ in the top 100 markets. That means odds are you'll have access to HSPA+ if you're in a large city.
For T-Mobile Android fans, the only devices that are serious contenders with the myTouch 4G are the Samsung Vibrant or the HTC G2. With the tethering option available for an extra $15/mo, the myTouch 4G is an easy choice to make for the highly-connected user.
