Advantages: Nice big screen and a separate keyboard
Disadvantages: No optical zoom
The T-mobile G1 - or HTC Dream- is a phone that was manufactured by HTC in 2006 which was also the very first sm,artphone to use the Android operating system ,and was created to rival the Apple iPhone.The phone came in a cardboard box with headphones,manuals,chargers and an extra Micro SD card for even more storage.The thing that I found the most interesting was the charger worked as both the usb for the computer and the mains charger because the mains plug had a USB port instead of being fixed to a cable.
At first glance the phone is slightly on the large side because of the flip out keyboard stored under the screen for typing long messages.The screen is nice and large too with plenty of room for watching videos or reading e-Books. The battery life is short compared to a normal phone, only lasting one day, but this is because of the fact that the phone is a smart phone which is constantly connected to the Internet.
My experiences with the phone have been quite good. When setting up the phone all you need to do is to put in a G Mail account password , and you don't need to connect it to the computer like with the i Phones. The camera is quite good for a phone but the only feature it lacks is an digital zoom. The menus are easy to navigate and when touching the screen I have never found that it clicks down onto the wrong thing, which is another bonus.The keyboard is good , but the button are very small, the same size as on a Black Berry Curve and if you have large fingers like me you can sometimes find yourself typing different letters than what you intended. Making calls is very simple with this and you are in no danger of ending calls when touching the screen against your face because a proximity sensor will lock the screen. Reception is quite good on this and I can get a full signal almost anywhere apart from my local secondary school due to the metal framework.
All in all the T-Mobile G1 is a very good phone for being the first to use Android, and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice smart phone with a big screen but without the big price tag of Apple's iPhone.
Summary: a very good phone that wont break the bank on a monthly contract
