T-Mobile G1 Review
Member Name: SuperiorChaos
Advantages: Open source, highly customizable, lots of apps
Disadvantages: Bad battery life, Volume isn't very loud
I have had my g1 for a a well over a year now and I like it a lot. The android OS is a bit daunting at first but once you get to grips with it, its a pleasure to use. It is also extremely customizable and can be tailored to suit the users specific needs. I found the battery life to be pretty poor when I first started using my g1 but once I changed the network setting to 2g networks only it improved the battery life immensely. I am currently running cyanogenmod 6.1 which is a custom build of android 2.1. This vastly improves performance compared to the stock build as this is still on 1.6 for the g1 and Google have shown no interest in officially porting android 2.1 to this phone. In conclusion this is an excellent phone and although it may feel a little behind the curve with the stock rom if you use a custom one it will easily compete with some of the newer android devices.
Summary: T-Mobile G1 is an android based smartphone from HTC
