Tech Review: T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide


Posted July 2, 2010 - By Moye Ishimoto

T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide Review »

With T-Mobile's strong Android options, the myTouch 3G Slide could be their best yet. Kevin Pereira and Alison Haislip take a look at the phone's new features, like their Faves Gallery, Genius Button, 3.4" touch screen and 5 megapixel camera for only $180 with a contract.

What You Need To Know

  • The myTouch 3G Slide has the familiar rectangular design of the myTouch series.
  • It's a little thicker than an iPhone and a little heavier.
  • The plastic case feels sturdy.
  • It has a 320 x 480 HVGA resolution, which is half of the iPhone 4.
  • The menu shortcut are along the bottom, while the camera and volume control buttons are on the side.
  • They really improved the Android interface with the last few updates, and this phone runs on Android 2.1.
  • The HTC's Sense interface makes it more user-friendly and adds its "leap" navigating feature.
  • It has a 3.4" touch screen with pinch and zoom capabilities, and it's quite responsive.
  • The Qwerty keyboard doesn't slide out as smooth as we'd like, but it locks solidly and the keyboard is spread out with large buttons, making it easy to type.
  • There's also an onscreen keyboard and a swipe feature for typing.
  • Overall, it does what an Android phone is expected to do.
  • In addition, you get the Faves Gallery, which is a shortcut to your favorite contacts.
  • There's also the Genius Button which allows for voice commands.
  • These two new features work okay.
  • The Faves Gallery keeps track of your calls and messages with the people you talk to the most.
  • It depends on how many friends you're constantly in touch with, or how often you message them, but this feature can be useful.
  • The Genius button works pretty well: sometimes it would get the wrong name or word, but overall it understood what we were saying or looking for.
  • The phone also comes with a 5 megapixel camera and flash, but we found the image and video quality to be mediocre.
  • Low light pictures came out blurry and daylight pictures looked dull.
  • There are thousands of Apps to download from the Android Market.


  • $180.00 with a 2 year T-Mobile contract.


  • 3 Seals of Approval out of 5. (How do we rate gadgets?)
  • It's definitely a solid smartphone, but a little bit pricey for what you're getting, considering that you can get the Droid Incredible for $20 more on Verizon Wireless.
