"Best Smartphone Out There--Too Bad Its TMobile"5.0 starson by appeal2
Pros: Snappy performance from the snapdragon processor. Fast, multi-tasking, great form factor.
Cons: T-Mobile. Unless you are in a City of 50,000 or more T-Mobile is a weak carrier. They really need to merge with AT&T and put everyone out of their misery.
Summary: Once you get over the paranoia of Google knowing everything about you, this is an incredible phone. Far superior to the Droid. The performance is much faster than the iPhone. Apps run pretty well. Not a multi-media device like the iPhone. I have 20 gigs of songs, movies, podcasts and audiobooks on my iPhone. I see nothing here that can compete. But when it comes to keeping track of your contacts, email and google calendars, this phone is tops. Better display than the iPhone.
I wouldn't call this an iPhone killer. Not just because of the apps availability, although many apps that I use on the iPhone just aren't there for Android yet. It really has more to do with the carrier. If this phone was available on Verizon, it would own the market today. T-Mobile is a sucky carrier. When you're on wi-fi it flies. On the supposed 3g T-Mobile network it bogs down and goes into Edge continually.
Obviously the next gen iPhone will have the amOled screen with a faster processor and availability on the Verizon network. Its going to be interesting to see.
