Advantages: Great features, big screen, qwerty keyboard
Disadvantages: Big, bulky and bad battery life.
For my first contract phone I did not want something as expensive as an iphone so when I heard T-Mobile were bringing out the G1 to rival the iphone I snapped it up immediately.
The T-Mobile G1 is manufactured by HTC and has a similar look and feel to many original HTC phones. Measuring 117mm tall by 53mm wide by 15mm deep and weighing 159g, the G1 is not the slimmest smartphone on the market. This phone is not sleep and sexy that is certain but it is definitely interesting!
The G1 is a solid robust smartphone with a rubber backing. It is easy to grip although it is slightly on the large side.
There is a good reason for the G1 to be on the slightly larger side - it boasts a full Qwerty keyboard. For all those users that do not like typing on screen this is definitely a phone for you! The screen is a fantastic size for watching videos on youtube etc.
I had this phone for six months and thoroughly enjoyed learning it's settings - best way of using it and seeing all that android had to offer. I absolutely loved this phone and think it was a fantastic bit of kit. If I was to say something negative I have to say that the battery life could be pretty shocking, but I think with all smartphones this is not something unique to the G1.
Personally I found this phone quite big and ended up not being able to fit it in my pocket. This seems quite insignifcant but this ended up with me leaving my phone in a shop as I was always carrying it around in my hand. Bad times.... :( This was where my love affair with my G1 ended!
Great smartphone with many fantastic features but Iphone wins on looks in my opinion.
Summary: A fantastic phone that I loved!
