T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide review

MyTouch-Main T-Mobile’s ‘myTouch’ branding may be alien to us here in the UK, but for our friends across the pond, it is a common and successful line of consumer friendly Android devices. Some eagle-eyed fandroids might even recognise the roots of the myTouch 4G Slide in the form of the HTC Magic, one of the first Android hits in the UK. While it may not have evolved here to what the Yanks have with this 4G Slide, some of us may still be interested with it being more powerful than all other landscape qwerty device currently available in the UK.

The dual core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor and impressive 8MP camera brings this in line with the top Android smartphones around, while the bonus of HTC’s design and stellar build quality (and of course the sliding keyboard) might be the deciding factor for some.

So is it worth signing two or three years of your life away for? Could it even be worth importing from the States? Read on to find out.
