Pros love the keyboard, still hasthe iphone keyboard. can upload videos directly to youtube, can give voice commands for searches or people (great while driving), can map a text message instantly, then search for otels there, and then call those hotels !
Cons Still cannot open email attachments ! and I wish my iphone songs would work.
Summary Switched from Iphone to G1 and happy for it !
Pros Keyboard, free apps, Google based and Google based search.
Cons Wi-Fi kind of restricted
Summary I've been having a lots of issues to connect to public Wi-Fi, I called T-Mobile, they explain that maybe I need to set up my router differently, I did, I changed it from channel 6 (defaults) to Channel 7, now the phone works...Now how about the rest of the routers and tons of free wi-fi around the country where the phone doesn't work?. wi-fi means that the phone will loads pages a lot quicker than G3...the problem is that your setting have to be specific frequency and/or T-Mobile Hot spot. I am not able to connect on the mall, mc donalds, burger kind, public library nor most unprotected networks!!! BIG MINUS!!.
"Amazing phone"on by bunnysoft
Pros Android platform that is opensource so anyone can make awesome apps, qwerty keypad, touchscreen, google community all syncs up, 3g networking, accelorometers, internal compass, gps, good camera, and the very intuitive apps that you can get for free
Cons it is a shame that it doesn't have a standard headphone jack, or video recording (yet), but those are easy to work around.
Summary some people might get hung up on the tiny cons but if you can look past them you will find one of the most amazing phones to date.
Pros Great sounds quality, mp3, super fast internet, good camera, good video playback quality, market place has endless applications (coolest applications)Easy to type using keyboard. Tracker incase stolen. speaker phone loud. Upgrades you can install
Cons NO VIDEO CAPTURE OPTION YET
Summary EXCELLENT PHONE, NOTHING LIKE IT, AMAZING APPS, GOOD CAMERA, FUN PHONE, QUICK INTERNET. COMPUTER/PHONE
Pros It's like having a laptop in your pocket!
Cons Battery life is pathetic! Call quality, speakerphone. Bronze keys are hard to see when they're lit up.
Summary I test drove this phone for a few days. As far as the internet's concerned, this phone is incredible! I love that you don't have to close your web page(s) to read incoming alerts. You can just pull the tab down from the upper left corner of the screen, check out your text/voice messages and missed calls. When you're done, just use your finger to flip the tab back up! Scrolling is wonderful as you don't have to constantly flick, flick, flick to get from one end of a page to the other. You can give it one good swipe and you'll swiftly cruise from top to bottom, right to left, etc. I also Love that you can have several web pages open at the same time and just bouce around from page to page. You can also open e-mail attachments! If you have big fingers that would hinder your ability to select the correct option on the screen, you can easily adjust the size of your page/print or you can use the trackball.
One of the main reasons I chose not to keep this phone is the DREADFUL battery life. I shouldn't have to worry about finding someplace to charge my phone in the middle of the day. That may be fine when I'm at the office, but if I'm out and about, that's a hell-to-the-naw! The G1 needs whatever battery the LG Dare is workin' with! I was on the Dare for HOURS and that battery was challenging me to make it sweat! Excuse me, kind reader, whilst I applaud the LG Dare's fine battery...*applause* Thank you. Back to the G1, you can actually check out the phone's battery meter and see that it seems to drop gradually each minute or so that you're on it. No matter how fully charged the battery was when I'd turn the G1 back on after charging it, the meter would just say 99% . Guess it looses 1% just gettin' started. Google a subject and 5 minutes later, it's down to 96%. I missed the ability to video record, but could live without it as I knew when I got the phone that it did not have that feature. I did not see an option to keep notes and/or tasks on the phone and that's a feature that I use quite often. I hated the phone's appearance from day one. Thought that what it lacked in aesthetic pleasure, it'd make up for in other areas. After all, it's what's inside that counts, right? Typing around that Jay Leno chin was irking.
At the end of the day, the G1's hot-or-notness is up to the individual. If all I wanted to do is web surf...and charge my phone, this would be the perfect phone for me.
