T-Mobile Network Features

High-Speed Data Connectivity via T-Mobile's 3G/4G Network

This phone is compatible with T-Mobile's UMTS/HSDPA/HSPA+ 3G/4G network, which operates on the 1700/2100 MHz AWS spectrum, and it can achieve theoretical download speeds of up to 21 Mbps. It's designed to automatically connect to the best available network (4G, 3G, or GSM/GPRS/EDGE) to provide faster data speeds when accessing the Web.

In areas where the 3G/4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the via T-Mobile's EDGE network (which stands for "Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution"). This high-speed, mobile data and Internet access technology is fast enough to support a wide range of advanced data services (with average data speeds between 75-135Kbps), including full picture and video messaging, high-speed color Internet access, and e-mail on the go.

T-Mobile's Expanding, Super-Fast 4G Mobile Broadband Network

As of February, 2011, T-Mobile has upgraded its traditional 3G network to HSPA+ 4G in 200 major metropolitan areas across the U.S.--cover 200 million people across the country--with plans to continue rolling out this network upgrade throughout 2011. With typical download speeds that are on par with or faster than competing 4G technologies, T-Mobile's HSPA+ network provides fast data speeds--up to 3 times faster than AT&T and Verizon's standard 3G networks--while allowing simultaneous voice and data capabilities for the ultimate wireless voice and data experience. You'll enjoy faster Web browsing, uninterrupted video streaming, and quicker app downloads.

Swype Keyboard

T-Mobile's 4G mobile broadband network (powered by HSPA+) provides a theoretical capability of up to 21 Mbps peak download speeds, with average download speeds typically in the 5 to 8 Mbps range.

Swype Keyboard

An alternative to the Android virtual keyboard, the Swype virtual keyboard allows you to input text by swiping the finger with one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard. Based on testing, speed and accuracy are equal to or better than the traditional keyboard-tapping method. You can activate the Swype keyboard by pressing and holding in a text field, wait for popup to appear, click Input Method, and then select Swype.

In the image to the right, the word "quick" was generated from tracing the path shown above in a fraction of a second, by roughly aiming to pass through the letters of the word. A key advantage to Swype is that there is no need to be very accurate, enabling very rapid text entry.

This is easily one of the best phones on the market currently. It's running mostly stock Android (LG replaced the camera app and there's a decent amount of bloatware [see below]), blazing fast (dual-core, faster than the Atrix), with 4G connectivity, all topped off with a very nice IPS display. What you might not like is the form factor, but that's really a personal preference. If you're on T-Mobile and you don't need a keyboard (G2) then this is clearly the winner.

What's not to like, from a more objective standpoint, is what's done in replacement of stock Android. For instance the camera app is a bit clunky and feels undone. Secondly that bloatware (AppPack, NFS SHIFT, Highlight, T-Mobile Mall, TeleNav GPS, T-Mboile TV, T-Mobile chat/Qik, ETC) can't all be removed easily. This is what I assume is to blame for the unit not shipping with the latest version of Android (2.3/Gingerbread). These are the things that keep it from being perfect IMO. Hopefully with time it will get updated to 2.3 (T-Mobile recently said "Soon") and the software bugs will get worked out with the camera. The bloatware can be hidden somewhat, so it's not a huge deal.

One thing to note: some reviews have complained about the screen quality, that is to say that the resolution isn't higher (e.g. qHD). It's a personal preference somewhat, but I'm actually glad they didn't use it, it adds weird sub-pixeling when viewed close up. The IPS screen will get washed out in direct sunlight though, but I think it's worth how nice the screen looks indoors.

Overall, it's a great phone and it's likely to stay competitive for the next year or so. If anything the software isn't ready for the hardware, but that will be fixed in time and it gives the impression the phone has a lot of room to grow and really impress.

The phone has three big faults.

1. The Wifi data connection is buggy. When it works, it works great. But on occasion, it will stop sending or receiving data even though there are full bars of Wifi indicated. It doesn't matter if you turn it off, pull the battery or reboot. The device will not transfer data. Apps will assume it's disconnected. T-mobile suggested you turn on the Advanced Wifi shutoff setting to "Never". This seems to work but I imagine it kills battery life.

2. The phone I had will randomly reboot like once a day. No advanced warning. It just reboots.

3. The GPU, when running a 3D game, will run down your battery fast. Keep the phone charging when you play a game.

Minor nitpicks

1. The screen bleeds light at the edges near the back-light.

2. The battery and back cover can get really hot when you charge the phone.

3. The mini-HDMI port was loose fitting when I plugged a cable. I could never get a snug fit and thus the video signal could never stay connected consistently. Holding the phone in your hand with the HDMI cable connected would probably break the connection more often than not. I would have to fidget with the cable and port until the signal locked. I was hoping to play games with it connected or maybe watch a movie but this is extremely frustrating. LG needs to get on-board with MHL video port technology like Samsung and HTC.

The good

1. The dual core Tegra CPU is fast. I only saw lag with Firefox for Android which is still kind of beta software.

2. The GPU can play 1080p videos well. High end Tegra-based games look great.

3. The camera records 1080p video easily. Stills are high resolution at 8 megapixels.

I bought this from T-Mobile retail for a much more expensive price - but I am still very happy with this phone...

It already has the hardware specifications of what the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4GS may have:

Dual Core CPU
8 Megapixal Camera recording in 1080p
Expandable flash memory up to 32GB...
4G is awesome! It is faster than my home and work internet!

So far I have not encountered any bugs or lock ups...

Plus the phone uses a Micro-HDMI cable output which you can easily find - and it can display what is on the phone screen to your HDTV! Other phones like the Samsung Galaxy S2 and iPhones require a proprietary cable which is much more expensive and harder to find...

Bought two as upgrades from the G1. Sendingthem back for reception issues.

The G1 got several bars of reception at home. I'm lucky to get one bar with the G2X. (The call quality is obviously inferior as well because of this). Tmobile (good experience as always) tried trouble shooting (updating sims, changing network type, checking tower etc) but no improvement. The reception was weak outside our house as well. One suffered from occasional random reboots and seemed to have a worse signal than the other outside the house. Neither had a really consistent 4G connections here in Norfolk. The other negative was that both screens had prety significant backlight bleed through on the black background of the boot screen. Not ever visible in use but it still made me a bit uneasy.

On the plus side it's a really nice piece of gear. It's fast, responsive and quick when it is connected to the network or wifi (wifi calling dropped fairly consistently as well, but as I haven't used it in my house with another device I can't be sure it's not my WNDR3700 so I won't count that against the G2X). The web loads faster than my tab or wife's ipad over wifi. The screen is also nice once everything is loaded. Finally the camera seemed pretty solid and the speaker phone function works well (when you have a connection).

I liked it but as it wasn;t meeting my needs inthe phone area I had to send them back. If you have exceptional signal strength in your town you may have a better experience.
