T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide review
engadget has published their review of the myTouch 4G slide.
The myTouch 4G Slide is certainly a worthy contender in the race for best cameraphone, but it takes more than hardware and software wizardry to make "the most advanced camera of any smartphone." When it comes to mobile photography, Nokia still reigns supreme with the N8 (which is a far better shooter than it is a phone), and Samsung continues to flex its imaging muscle with the Galaxy S II. It’s surprising that despite packing the same processor and battery as HTC’s Sensation flagship, the Slide performed worse in our speed and endurance tests. There’s also room for improvement in the display and keyboard departments, which don’t quite live up to our standards. Ultimately though, none of this really matters — the Slide is pleasant and easy to use, looks and feels great, and takes gorgeous pictures. As such, your mom won’t be disappointed. If you want a qHD display, and can live with less camera, the Sensation is a viable alternative to the Slide for the same $200 (on contract). Still, we think the recently updated G2x remains the best device in T-Mobile’s lineup thanks to its top-notch camera and a slightly better display than the Slide for $50 less. Well, what are you waiting for? Go out there and buy your mom a phone already!
