*Not my photo. Finally I’ve got the TMobile G1! Well, I was the first one who said the phone looks ugly and would wait for G2. But then I could not resist myself.. I must say it's an amazing piece of device. I love it! I can’t do a review of this phone yet since I’ve not used it long enough. But so far Android has been rock solid. Here are the first impressions: 1. The display is excellent and very responsive and smooth like the iPhone. Interface is very responsive too. It can do multi-tasking and Copy-paste! 2. Building quality: feels solid. 3. Look: I must admit, I thought the phone was ugly when I first saw pictures and videos of G1. But After holding it in my hand, it’s a different story. I have the black one and it is really beautiful. I was hopping to get the Bronze one but it is too shiny and looks cheap. 4. Keyboard is nice. I never used such small keyboards but it’s quiet comfortable. An on screen keyboard is very much needed. Backlight makes a nice contrast with keyboard 5. The notification bar is great. One of the coolest features of android. It gives me all kinda notifications such as email, IM, download etc at one place. Neat! 6. Browser is pretty fast. I’m on EDGE now and pages load pretty quick. I did a speed test and it’s about 180kbps. The on screen zoom controls are pretty annoying since they show up whenever I touch the screen for scrolling and take good amount of screen space. No flash, java support yet. Again browsing experience is not as good as iPhone due to smaller screen size and lack of multi touch. But I won't say it's bad. It's good not great. 7. Internal memory is a joke. I had about 78MB available when I 1st checked. Now I have about 50MB since Android stores caches in phone memory. Apps cannot be stored in memory card. 8. The roller ball is very responsive. Better than Blackberry. 9. Music player is OK. Can’t comment on music quality since I don’t have a USB to 3.5mm audio adapter. Bundled headphone is as usual, flat sounding. I’ve order one from ebay. No video player as expected. There is one in app store but I’ve not tried it yet. 10. Camera is OK. It has auto focus. I’m not impressed with image quality. 10. Now the (in)famous battery life. I started using the phone as soon as I received it. Battery was at some 60%. Battery died after 4 hours, out of which 3 hours I was on EDGE browsing Internet, playing with settings, mp3 and stuffs. Then I charged the battery overnight (10 hours). So far, up time is 4H:13M and awake time is 1H:21M which i mostly spent in browsing, IM, taking some picture and 5Min GPS and battery says 67%. Not good at all. I wonder how long battery would last if I use 3G network. That’s all I can think of now. Will post later as I discover more.
