T-Mobile G1 review

We review the G1, the first Android-based smartphone Google

Verdict : With its app store and open source system, Google’s Android on the G1 greater things to come

. Finger friendly, on-board app superb screen


Cons . headset slot, average life, awkward keyboard

System:

Google’s first mobile phone, the G1, is exclusively from T-Mobile. Google to offer a new approach to smartphone systems, adding itself a mix that includes Windows S60 on (almost exclusively) handsets Nokia, the burgeoning list of from the likes of LG and Samsung, of course, Apple’s iPhone.

The G1 is a 3G with HSDPA, GPS, and WiFi. There is a 3.2 megapixel though there is no front for two-way video calls.

Made by HTC, the G1 is not the stunning of hardware it could have Its weight, at a massive 158g it something of a beast for the pocket and a bit of a chunky device for the hand. At x 56mm x 17mm there are smartphones which rival it for though.

The key reason for the bloated is that under the screen is a keyboard.

Fiddly keyboard

To get to the you turn the G1 on its side and push the so that it swings out and upwards. The is a full QWERTY with a number row. It is not the best we’ve ever used, but not the either. The keys are individually which helps with

But because only the screen away to reveal the keyboard you are with part of the front in situ and have to reach this with your thumb to hit keys. It feels a bit and off-centre at first and if you have fingers it could prove a irritation.

A characteristic of the design of the G1 is a curved section below the Does this bring the closer to your ear? it stop the screen scratching you put the phone face down on a Well, yes on both counts, but we sure these factors are justification.

Either way, the is distinctive and doesn’t detract usability. This area five buttons and a miniature That trackball seems a bit overkill considering there is a but we did actually find it useful at and it is nice to have the option.

The buttons cater for Call, End and Home and back. These are fare for a smartphone. An additional labelled Menu, is more

This brings up a different depending on what application you are at the time.

No headset jack

One big disappointment is the absence of a 3.5mm jack. Instead the earphones the miniUSB connector that is used by mains power. It bizarre that such a multimedia rich handset not have a 3.5mm connector. But you go.

And even more annoyingly, the headset is one piece so you can’t your favourite 3.5mm into it.

The screen is superb. It 3.2 inches across diagonal and its capacitive design makes it responsive indeed to finger It has a 320 x 480 resolution which is quite for a smartphone.

Importantly, the user interface has designed with touch in just as the interface on the iPhone so there is no need to resort to a for getting to small icons (as you do Windows Mobile, for example).

operating system

Android is well thought through as an system. There are three screens, between which you by sweeping a finger. It is easy to put onto any of these three by dragging out a tab on which they as icons and then dragging onto the screen.

Android is an source operating system but it is tied in to Google’s software So, for example, Google Maps is and very well integrated, Google Talk is the IM application of and YouTube support is integrated owns YouTube).

Mobile email is, of course, towards Google Mail. In when you switch the G1 on for the first it asks you to log in, and then it downloads contacts over the air and the phone is to go. You can add other email accounts however, the G1 does not support Exchange. That will to those who want to synchronise emails on their smartphones as the are it won’t be possible.

Personal is fine, though.

The open nature of Android means there is plenty of scope for developers. And emulating Apple, the G1 an app store on the device so you can peruse the of available programmes and download directly to the handset.

The G1 isn’t There are some iffy to the hardware and Android needs polishing in places. Battery is also a bit short.

But as a first attempt it is passable, and we great things from in the future.
