This is the best G2 phone ever, I hope G2 come back with 8mp, secondary 2mp, dual core 1.5, 1Gb ram, 3G 42mb & lov :)
i know that this is very good cell and i want this always.........................thanks
Great phone, still have it in nearly new condition. I see all these phones coming out and none are worth the upgrade and not because I'm still under 2-year contract. Like mention below, the most customized phone yet, though I have yet to modify and strengthen the spring on the z-hinge. Awesome device, though my next may be a Nokia with Symbian or Windows, some platform with real PIM functions and Business environment, no, not a Blackberry.
So here we are 9 months into ownership of the HTC G2. We've seen rollercoasters on the dev scene but at this point this device is one of the most hackable pieces of hardware on the market perhaps second only to the Samsung Captivate. MiUI, CM6-7, HTC Flyer Rom, Bliss port, Virtuous Rom's (Unity Sense 3.0, Doubleshot mt4g port, G-Lite ASOP, Vrom2.0 Optimized Sense), and a number of different skins for all of the above make this device highly customizable.
The Scorpion processor is still quite capable in the world of single core system on a chips, handily pulling down 3K+ benchmarks when overclocked to 1ghz depending on the rom.
The only major setbacks to this device is the lack of RAM, thus making more system intensive roms such as Unity be somewhat laggy, and the fact that many shipped with crappy stock springs, thus necessitating my needing to void my manufacturer warranty to fix a manufacturer defect. Great going there guys especially when I wasn't allowed an exchange due to a defect that you shipped. From what I heard this policy was later changed, but by that point I'd already fixed the problem myself.
Terribly small stock battery but the Evo Shift battery fits as a drop in replacement so that can be overlooked.
Now since this device has been EOLed and it wasn't terribly popular on the market, used versions have dropped to sub $200 depending on your area. As a secondhand device to replace your busted old hardware, or to tide you over till your next upgrade: look no further. There is no better querty keyboard device on the Tmobile market save the MT4gSlide. But hey, that was just released and is expensive as all get out.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2011very fortunate...my g2 slipped out of my pocket while i was on a rollercoaster ride...miraculo... moreI find that very amazing. I was going to buy a G2 for my daughter but instead I bought a Sidekick and she loves it more than the G2 that she wished on receiving.
very fortunate...my g2 slipped out of my pocket while i was on a rollercoaster ride...miraculously..lended on wooden chips from 3 stories high...all ok !!
The G2 does NOT have a Gorilla Glass display. Mine SHATTERED by just barely slapping it!
Don't want to root phone and want qwerty choose g2 want bigger screen choose vibrant, but you will need to root it because touch wiz suc*s. ofcourse rooted g2 is a beast, and if you choose good rom and oc procesor you get close performance to sgs2 (procesor)
Great phone without root. But with root it is a BEAST, you can OC it to 1.9 ghz (with just wery small risk) and get same score in quadrant as sgs2 THIS IS BEST OVERCLOCKABLE PHONE or OC it to 1.5ghz with NO RISK and get 3000 in quadrant ( with custom rom ) And if you tweak it battery saving settings it still stays usable with full battery for 2days. The point is you need to root it to get most of it, and at this time it is very easy, you can do this in xda-developers.com
What would you say to this phone if u compared it to the Samsung Vibrant. They have many similar specifications but what would you say is better.
Samsung Vibrant or G2
It looks exactly like desire Z or maybe it is desire Z just marketed by T-Mobile
