5.0 out of 5 stars Good phone for a great OS December 27, 2008
I seriously considered the iPhone 3G, but decided against it based on Apple's business practices. After 1.5mo of use, I have no regrets at all. There are a few trade-offs in favor of either phone, and the G1's interface may not be quite as polished as the iPhone, but in all I think the G1 is a better value. If you're a user of Google services (Gmail, calendar, contacts, Picasa, etc...) this phone is for you.

The good:
- I've gone through several generations of PDAs (no previous smart phones, however). With the G1, I finally feel like I have the internet in my hand, wherever I am. Google has made the transition to a mobile platform almost completely seamless.
- Range is far superior to my previous T-Mobile phones.
- Keyboard for a smartphone of this class seems essential.
- Performance under EDGE is better than I expected, and good enough to be useful.
- 3G and Wifi performance is outstanding. WEP was easy to configure.
- Service price is far more reasonable than other carriers, and T-Mobile support (what little I've needed) has been outstanding.
- Great UI - very intuitive, responsive, and attractive. Screen response is great, as well. Compared to the iPhone, it's missing multi-touch, and it is far better than Windows Mobile 6. Cross-app integration is superior.
- Shop Savvy has already saved me more than the cost of the phone and monthly service.

The not-so-good:
- T-Mobile coverage service is nowhere near as broad as other carriers in the US.
- The web browser does have problems rendering some pages - craigslist, for instance.
- I've never run out of battery during a single day, but with heavy use it won't go two days. Limited use, it will last me three days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid phone, good starting point for Android... December 23, 2008
I have TMo, so when they were announced to be the first carrier to have an Android phone, I was psyched. Apple is WAY too restrictive for me to buy any of their products and Google's Android platform represented exactly the kind of advanced mobile OS I was looking for. The phone has its ups and downs, but if you read nothing else, I'm happy to be a G1 owner. I'll mark the PROs and CONs with G1 for the phone's actual hardware and AND for Android points.

>> [G1] Good touch screen, capacitive, no stylus! I hate the PDA-ish screens that companies continue to use.
>> [G1] QWERTY keyboard is nice to have, you may notice that onscreen keyboards are...squished... Easier to use if you'll be typing.
>> [G1] Call quality is very nice. Much superior to my Sidekick III (whose quality was *much* less than stellar. Better signal reception.
>> [G1] 3G is nice to have if you're in a covered area, makes web browsing and YouTube streaming that much better.
>> [AND] Home screen is done well, much preferable to the iPhone's app icon list.
>> [AND] Screen automatically reorients quickly when the keyboard is opened (see cons for the caveat)
>> [AND] Marketplace for Apps is a good tool to find something if it isn't built in. Growing selection at the moment though, all apps free at this point
>> [AND] Android interface is fairly pretty, not Apple quality, but pretty.
>> [G1] Screen sliding mechanism to reveal keyboard is functional and cool, slightly swings in an arc movement. 2 months and no problems yet...
>> [G1] If nothing else, I appreciate the 3.1MP camera quality. Much better than most cells, including the iPhone
>> [AND] Browser is great! Never had the opportunity to have such a great web experience on a phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good first gen that will get better April 16, 2009
I've owned this for about a month. It gets used fairly constantly for data (email, web browsing, etc) and fairly often for voice.

* It's a little bulky, but not unbearably so, and unlike a lot of phones, it's easy to hold and use when making a call. Call quality is excellent.

* Battery life is pretty good, much better than the Windows Mobile device it replaced. Assuming I remembered to plug it in before I went to bed, it'll last the whole day, even when using it as a music player during the commute.

* Interface is exceptional, although I really wish it had a soft keyboard for quick IMs and such. Having to flip open the keyboard and rotate the phone to type a single word for a website form and so forth gets old.

* An abundance of third-party apps for almost any need, mostly for free, and an active developer community.

* Solid construction. It feels well made. Time will tell how durable it is, but based on past experience I think it'll be almost indestructible.

I'm very pleased with the G1, and I'm confident that it's utility will only increase over time as the software is refined and third-party developers learn the platform.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love my G1! June 24, 2009
By T.A.R.
I pre-ordered the G1 last year and now that the Cupcake update has arrived (bringing a soft keyboard, better camera, better battery life and video!), I can honestly say it's perfect! I used a first gen iPhone for about a month and the G1 blows it out of the water.

2.0 out of 5 stars Keyboard can't be read; get the Black G1 January 8, 2009
The Bronze (early on, this color was called "brown") G1 has a medium light colored keyboard with dark letters. The keyboard back lighting lights up the letters. In normal, indoor lighting, the room light and the back light balance, making the keys impossible to read. The keyboard is only readable in very bright light or very little light. In bright light, such as sunlight, the sun overwhelms the back lighting and the keyboard is easy to read. In darkness, the back lighting works fine, because little room light is reflecting off the keys.

Get the G1 in Black. (I haven't seen a white G1. I don't know if its keyboard is legible.)
