Chris Hardwick and Kevin Pereira review the MyTouch 3G, the latest Android phone for T-Mobile designed by HTC with a 3.2" touch screen, 3.2 mega pixel camera and smooth, sleek form. Find out if T-Mobile has brought another iPhone competitor to the mobile market.

What You Need To Know

  • The MyTouch 3G is clearly a huge improvement over the first Android phone.
  • It weighs less than most cell phones, about as thick as the G1 but less bulky and awkward.
  • The touch screen is the same size as the G1 at 3.2 inches.
  • The new virtual keyboard features a landscape mode and the predictive text works well.
  • You can drag and drop icons just like on a desktop computer, but the scrolling is a little jerky.
  • There's no multi-touch pinching or zooming.
  • Overall, the Android interface keeps improving and this is one of the best touch screens we've seen.
  • The Android Market features over 6,300 apps to choose from.
  • Browsing is a little slow but better than most phones.
  • The 3.2 mega pixel camera takes video, too, but it's only okay and doesn't have a flash.
  • There is added Exchange email support.
  • The 4 gig micro SD is expandable.

Price

  • $200.00 with a T-Mobile contract.
  • The price is pretty reasonable which means this is the best phone you can buy on T-Mobile.

    Man i'm going to buy this phone soon. I hope it's awesome, but I trust in G4's judgement. Chris Hardwick makes these Gadget Pron segments awesome, dispite the crappy-ness of some of the products that are reviewed.

    Gotta say, I love this phone. Own it, love it. After watching the review I gotta say I don't think that "proprietary headphone jack" is the right description for the "headphone jack". The bottom of the phone is a mini-usb female jack. The phone comes with a converter that allows you to plug in any pair of headphones into the phone. This is not like the first gen iphone. The one big downside with the jack comes when you want to charge your phone and listen to music. There are third party adapters that allow you to do this but obviously this shouldn't be not be the only way to be able to listen to music and charge your phone. It also stinks when you want to listen to music and then realize tha you forget the usb to 3.5mm headphone converter at home. Even with this, I like this phone way more than the iPhone. But that's just me.

    All they really have to do is further upgrade the tech to "apple standards" and that would take away from most, if not all of the jerkiness I HATE about this phone. Still love and prefer android leaps and bounds over apple's OS....

    Wanna see the REAL G2?? Take a look at the HTC Hero!!! That is the true "sequel" to the G1 and the tech on that phone is much better than the My Touch 3G... Can't wait til that hits stateside... Its gonna blow Chris Hardwick's mind. Lol....
