Review: T-Mobile myTouch 4G
T-Mobile's second HSPA+ smartphone is the HTC-made myTouch 4G. It follows an evolutionary path as far as the myTouch line goes. Is this the best version yet?
AD article continues below...
The HTC-made MyTouch 4G is the latest evolution of the myTouch line, and clearly the best. It improves upon nearly every feature compared to the last two versions of the phone, and notably adds HSPA+ to the mix. If you're a slab-phone phan, er, fan, and can't wait to take HSPA+ for a ride, the myTouch has a lot to offer.

great review.... BUT
You know what my problem is...
Such great specs wasted too. Second generation 1GHz processor, Front facing camera, Sony Super LCD, HSPA+. The target audience of the MyTouch series doesn't give a crap. The MyTouch line was designed to be midrange and these are high end specs.
If T-Mo were smart enough they should have put all of these features onto the G2. Then they would have created the perfect phone giving the Epic a run for it's money. But nope as usual T-Mo misses the the mark.
I'll stick with the Vibrant for now....
Front Camera and DLNA?
The fact that it sports a second generation Snapdragon processor with the newer video cards would be nice too.
Really a beast of a phone.
I was a little disappointed with the camera myself, though I am currently comparing everything against the iPhone 4. Everything else is super speedy and very well done.
Even though I am an iPhone fanboy, I kind of like the punch T-Mobile took at AT&T/Apple with their new AD this morning... pretty funny!

At least you admitted it. Good for you. That's the first step towards recovery.
