Review: HTC myTouch 4G Slide
The myTouch 4G Slide adds a whole heck of a lot more than just a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It may be a bit dull to look at, but it’s a powerful mobile device that offers a good range of features.
The keyboard isn't the best I've used, but typists who prefer real buttons to tapping on glass will appreciate the thoughtful design of the 4G Slide's keyboard. Sound quality was good, but if you need a rampagingly loud speakerphone you might need to look for something else. Battery life was acceptable for this class of device.
The 4G Slide could benefit from HTC's Sense user interface, but even without it it has a lot of easy-to-divine features and options. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread system really screams on the 4G Slide with its powerful dual-core processor.
HTC did a great job of endowing the camera with extra features — such as HDR — that have a noticeable impact on image quality. With the excellent feature list and speedy interface, chances are good you'll get the shot you want.
The 4G Slide strikes a good balance. It's not a superphone, but it's no slouch, either. For the text-happy photographer, the myTouch 4G Slide offers all the right touches.
