Review: LG myTouch Q for T-Mobile
The LG myTouch Q's 3.5-inch display is smaller than average for today's Android smartphones. Most devices are shipping with displays that are four inches and larger. The display has a rating of 480 x 360 pixels, but it looks like there are fewer than that. It's easy to pick out individual pixels. Edges of icons, text, and pictures are fuzzy and lack sharpness. Last, the display pales next to the competition when it comes to brightness. Using it outdoors is difficult at best. It's not an impressive display by any stretch of the imagination.
The myTouch Q does pretty well on signal, as far as T-Mobile phones go. It was able to find T-Mobile's network no matter where I took it, and never lost the signal entirely. It registered anywhere from one to four bars at any given time, but low bars didn't have an impact on the ability to make calls or connect to the data network for some surfing. The myTouch Q never dropped any calls, but it missed several.
The LG myTouch Q is capable of producing good sound all around. Phone calls were loud and clear in the earpiece. I was able to understand callers in crowded shopping malls with no problem. The ringers are plenty loud to be heard in most places, and I can't imaging you missing any calls unless you have the volume all the way down. The speakerphone is also capable of producing loud, clear calls that can be heard easily in a room with music playing the background. The only weakness was the vibrate alert, which I thought wasn't vibrate-y enough.

The LG myTouch Q has pretty good battery life. I was able to coax it into surviving through about 36 hours between charges. As with most modern smartphones, however, battery life depends a lot on how heavily the phone is used. If you're among the heaviest users, be prepared to charge it every night. Those who do naught but send text messages, perhaps check email, and make a few calls might get more than a day and a half out of it.
