T-Mobile G1 review: The whole cagoogle

20 March 2009
The T-Mobile G1 is the Googlephone. Did we really need to say that? Well, there's more Google in this story than there is phone, so we guess we did. We've got a new contender on the race track but we're talking no rookie here...

i like this phone, it has replaced my N97 mini and Sharp 903. Two things in particular is: 1, it doesn't freeze like the N97 mini and, 2, it has the great operating system like the Sharp 903 which just works with no problems. I wish the map from google maps could be preloaded onto the card like ovi maps so you could use the gps out of phone range.

And all that you said, video recording, autorotate and all that features can be fixed upgrading the firmware.

And I think that the web browser is better than the one that has the 5800.

'When reviewing an entirely new OS, a failure to spot that USB notification is quite understandable even for an experienced team such as ours.

It however says a lot about the usability of the software interface
'

oh yes GSM arena , you are excused , now will you excuse the team that DEVELOPS an entirely new OS aswell ??

Web browsing is fidly, my nokia 5800 has flash and can access parts of web pages for text input g1 cannot. Found I could not see all text even in fit to screen option when writing this even. This phone feels not finished for release, beta test standard, enen with latest firmware. Great phone briliant os, but did they run out of cash to finish project? It has potential to beat iphone or similar. Build quality is better than stated. Battery life like an hour browsing now that's lame. Pass over my 5800 until some firmware updates resolve issues like flash, video recording, multi formats like avi and java emulation with 3d support. 7 outta 10 for effort. Android os will be big though best interface ever seen.
