The phone is amazing, it is like a mini computer!!! G1 is probably the best phone for very low price. When you "jailbreak" it.. this phone is unstoppable. ;)
The best handset I've ever had. Definitely. Specs are not so awesome, but I have a minicomputer at hand.
Considering the fact that G1 is the first android phone ever built, i believe that you guys have mistreated the G1.
You should first root your device and change your ROM if you are having problems. Android does not kill apps so use taskiller or other app killers to free up your memory. I have Cynanogen 6 (Android 2.2) Running silk smooth on my G1 with Sygic Mobile Maps and lots n lots of amazing apps and games. I am keeping my G1 till the day it dies on me. And it's been 2 years now, and it survived and still runs like new.
nikki, 29 Jun 2010I've had my g1 for a cple of months and have had nothing but problems!!!!! it shuts itself off... moreall i can say is that i've had this phone for 8 months and i completely love it. android 1,188.8.131.52, cyan 4, cyan5.. this phone has evolved to be the best. no major problems yet.. guess you just havent figured out the potential yet
Weill i've had my g1 since November and i have to say its a pretty good phone. It may force close some apps every once in a while but its nothing major The only thing i really dont like is the screen freezing on me
I've had my gi 6 mts . Great phone !!! Works perfectly . Never have had problems.I luv it!!!!! Smooth as silk. Jim
I've had my g1 for a cple of months and have had nothing but problems!!!!! it shuts itself off deletes on its own and freezes... wouldn't recommend...
I've owned this device since release, It's been through a lot.
Battery life isn't very good, especially after so long. The vibrator rattles a bit now that the phone has loosened up over time, makes an annoying sound. Phone runs decently fast but if you opt to upgrade beyond Android 1.5 then things can get sluggish. The biggest flaw is lack of RAM and internal storage.
Overall the phone is durable and reliable but has many technical limitations. It has some flaws but it's understandable for the first Android phone ever! I'd recommend this phone to the technically inclined: it's the best phone to mess around with, hands down. For the average person I'd say find something a little newer.
the worst htc device with android OS of all time..cant believe hero beats the crap out of it with having the same OS on it ... i have no idea what the heck was htc thinking while making the G1/dream
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2010All of u complaining about battery life of android phones, go to market and install APNdroid. ... moreWould it not be just as easy to just switch to 2G instead of 3G. also if you do not like this app, please de-install with 3G on, read what is mentioned with the app.

I am download g1 application from android market but application not download and displayed cannot support this download tell me some reference about it
Open Handset Alliance: This is the same as the HTC Dream. However, it's definitely worth getting this one over the HTC because it'll be cheaper. It's a little known fact that re-branded HTC's like the O2 (in the UK) are cheaper then their "original" counterparts. Only possible issue might be that if something goes wrong with it, HTC (although the manufacturer) won't fix it. So you'll have to take it to your service provider and they will probably send it to their supplier (T-Mobile) who will then in turn send it to HTC.......A process you could avoid by getting the "original".
It's all too confusing.
I'm not sure about this third party application. Hopefully Google will develop their own versions of Office, pdf viewers/editors, etc.
A fan of the Open Source projects through and through..
Thanks for a great site gsm arena.
i like this phone but there are two things are missing. one bettery life, and other is office not working i install it but not working the office. so any one knows about the software of the office tell me?
