First T-Mobile G1 usability review

Mobile phones

Over at Android Community, they’ve managed to get a sneak peek at what it’s actually like to use the T-Mobile G1 as your phone. The author, Kaiziko, also offers a list of pros and cons of the G1, and has answered a long selection of questions about the device. I’ve put a few highlights over the jump.

“[the] phone does not run as smoothly as you would think”

“from time to time the device must be restarted in order to run smoothly”

“The speaker is relatively loud compared to other HTC devices.”

“There are already a lot of useful apps to download from the Android Market, including a free ringtone maker.”

“The battery charger makes the bottom of the phone extremely hot.”
