"One very slick device"5.0 starson by johnw43
Pros: Keyboard options are nice, Swype, standard and slide out. Very responsive. Reception and call quality. Internet speeds. Phone is not as bulky as one might think when looking at the specs.
Cons: Not a real fan of the faves application, kind of a low res feature. Like HTC sense favorites widget better. The Genius button function is hit or miss.
Summary: I have had the following phones in the last year: MT3G, BB Bold 9000 and 9700, BB 8520, Droid Eris, Motorola Droid, HTC Incredible, Iphone 3GS. Yes I have a problem. After one day of use, I think this one may be the best. Call quality and 3G signal have been very good, severely lacking on the Incredible and to a lesser extent the Eris. Did not like the Moto droid keyboard, this one seems much more usable. Despite not having a "top notch" processor, it feels very similar to the Inc in everyday use. Significantly more responsive than the Eris. Not quite as customizable as the Inc, can't use live desktops for instance, but not too big a deal. Battery life so far exceeds the Inc, don't know about the Moto Droid battery, been awhile. Heard some gripes about the slide mechanism being rough or feeling cheap, seems fine to me. Compared to the Iphone, the MT Slide to me is much preferable. T Mobile service where I live is very good, At&T and especially with Iphone not good. Love the Android features and ability to customize device, and multitasking. Sorry if this turned into a review of more than the MT3G Slide, but makes sense to me to compare it to what else is available.To paroali

I like the Android operating system better, I like how customizable it is. I rooted my iphone immediately so I could customize it a bit, as I don't like having the same exact phone as everyone else as far as desktop and icons and layout, etc. Still i liked Android better.
