The capabilities of this phone are amazing. You can do anything you want with this. Now, if you root your phone is even more amazing. Love this phone.

At first I loved this phone - all the features I could want, easy email setup, web browsing with Flash and a nice interface. Over time, however, the problems became apparent. I do not know if it is 4G growing pains, but this phone will completely drop signal for anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour. This happens on a daily basis, multiple times a day at my work where I have a consistent, full bar connection on 4G. This happens at home more frequently although I average only 2 bars on Edge. What is interesting is that at home, it will fully drop the signal and will go to WiFi calling and once it is in WiFi calling mode it will be at least an hour, if not a couple of hours, before it tries to connect back to the cell signal and this is when the phone is sitting in the area that has the best cell reception in the house; previous phones would only occasionally drop the call but they would never completely lose signal for more than a few minutes. I have tried having the settings with GSM only and with WCDMA only thinking that the phone was just having trouble switching between modes, but the issue still happens. This happens with both of the MyTouch 4G phones purchased. Something seems off about this phone's reception and regardless of how nice the interface is, if you can't make a call then it defeats the purpose of being a phone.

I bought this phone a year ago, and right off the bat I noticed how terrible the battery life is, I am lucky to get it to last 5 hours before it dies. After about a month I started getting notifications that said my messages app had a force close. And my messaging becomes completelt useless until I restart the phone.and then it deletes every conversation I have on my phone. Also when I turn my phone back on it almost always resends old messages to people all on its own. Currently after a year my phone no longer likes to charge, ive tried several different chargers
Nothing. And by a miracle that I can actually get it fully charged it randomly shuts itself off and when I turn it back on..surprise my battery is dead! My friend has the same phone and almost all the same problems. Biggest waste of money ever.

I have already owned this for over 16 mo. now. I bought 2 MyTouch 4G for my 17 yr. old daughter and myself and the only big, big headache is the battery life. I use wifi all day long and that is the only one I keep on all the time. It will barely give you 5-6 hours on one charge, so I bought 3 more batteries and 4 more chargers, cars, home and office, and if you want it to last all day you have to have it hooked as much as you can, so it is very inconvenient because when is plug charging you have to leave it unattended or away from you and lose phone calls. Not a good phone if you use it normally. Battery live is bad, bad, bad.
HTC, please fix that problem and you made a good phone otherwise.

Nice phone. Good form factor and does most things reasonably well.

But be aware that if your company is on Exchange 2010, this phone does not support it (see the HTC and T-Mobile forums). Not only that, there is NO date on when either company is estimating it will.

I suppose they spent a lot of time making sure that you could do Facebook updates without problems, but at the expense of not testing the phone (or intentionally releasing a defect) for most serious business users.

Worse yet, this is the only 4G Android iPhone type phone that T-Mobile has. The G2 has a slider keyboard.

Also disappointed that the T-Mobile store I upgraded from didn't call this out as an issue, but once I called Customer Care - they knew all about it. Not happy.

This smartphone is amazing for many reasons! Here a just a few:
- Genius button: voice activation for calling, sending someone a text or email, searching the web, or finding a business. Love this feature!
- Can have 5-7 home screens. Easy way to organize your applications and features.
- Takes great photos with nice editing features!
- Navigation
- Email
- Pefect Size
- And many, many more!
I definietely recommend this phone. :-)

As a phone this model is more than adequate. As a camera it is a big disappointment with poor contrast, washed out images and very poor low-light qualities.

Don't bother with this phone (released in November 2010) if you are uncomfortable with the now outdated Froyo version of the android OS. After 13 months on the market and over 6 months of T-mobile promises, the Gingerbread OS update remains elusive for the vast majority of users.

I ordered this phone in December 2012, and received it 3 days later. That was great! Phone worked great until recently when my battery was at 30% and I was on the way to put it on the charger and noticed the phone had already turned off. I charged it over night, and still nothing. I then tried to reset it and switched batteries. I also tried another charger, still NOTHING. Hopefully I can get a replacement. Until I figure out what the problem is I don't know if I would recommend.

I got this phone for free by signing a two year contract with T-Mobile (it's normally $99 with the contract, but they were running a New Year's special if you bought online). It's my first smart phone and I couldn't be happier.

How much do I love thee oh phone? Let me count the ways. It's fast as hell, it plays video flawlessly, the screen resolution is excellent (way sharper than my iPod Touch), the OS (Android Gingerbread) is elegant, clever and intuitive, it has a front facing camera for video chat, it has a high quality speech recognition program that responds to voice commands to let you make phone calls, text, etc., its navigation program is pretty much just as good as my mom's Tom Tom (it speaks to you and everything) and it fits nicely in my pocket.

While this is my first smart phone, I've used my girlfriend's old iPhone 3G and newer iPhone 4 many times. While those are both quality pieces of phone, there is nothing those phones did that this phone doesn't do. It's noticeably better than the 3G, and at the very least just as good as the iPhone 4. In fact, it has better technical specs than the iPhone 4 in several instances (e.g. the iPhone 4 has 512 MB of RAM while the myTouch 4G has 768 MB.) Considering the price difference when compared with the iPhone 4 and 4S, there really is no reason to buy the iPhone other than the cachet of owning the latest Apple product. While I do think Apple makes good products, I still think their phones are a little overrated. I consider this phone in the same league as the 4S performance wise and I got it for free. If I had spend a bundle on one of the top-of-the-line Android phones it would have technical specs that blow the 4S out of the water. Plus, the old idea that while Apple products may be pricey, they are easier to use and better designed that their competitors is null. Android works pretty much exactly the same way iOS does, but has the added benefit of greater customize-ability and more available Apps.

So long story short, if you're thinking about getting this phone, do it. You won't regret it.

I hate this phone, feel duped because the Tmobile sales guy convinced me to buy this over another phone. I've had it for over 1 year and still hate it.

1. Battery drains too fast - if you use the phone for emailing or data searches on the internet, expect the battery to be dead within a few hours.

2. Texting is a pain - if you hold the phone "portrait," the keyboard is so small that unless you have toothpicks for fingers, you're going to misspell every word. If you hold it landscape, you can't swype or reach some keys unless you have "man hands." And the predictive text loves to suggest super useful words such as "goiter" when I just want to type "for."

3. It is not user-friendly - the next steps to do anything are not intuitive. So, you will spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to use the phone. Even the Tmobile techs are stumped - I called once to ask them how to do something with ringtones and he had no idea. I finally figured it out (it took like 10 steps when it should have taken 1 or 2 on a good smartphone) while I was on the phone with the Tmobile tech and he said, "Can you please teach me how you just did that?" If you have to teach the phone company techs how to use the phone, perhaps the phone is not so user-friendly.
