Nelly, 10 Nov 2008For those of you who think the G1 sucks lets talk about how imperfect the iphone which in turn... moreIt's a techies phone.. Sure it's great at some things, and probably does beat the Iphone, but at the end of the day, i am a phone user rather than a techie ? I need it to be comfortable to hold when i'm typing a message, something that i personally find a problem with the G1, The battery lasts longer when certain apps & functions are turned off !!! that kind of defeats the object of having these functions on the phone, cannot plug in the headphones and charger at the same time, which on this phone is a must as the battery dies very quick when playing music. BUT apart from being poorly designed with a real bad battery, your right.. it's great ;-)
For those of you who think the G1 sucks lets talk about how imperfect the iphone which in turn has a lot of the same features. It lacks flash for its camera and it has a lower resolution it has multi-touch G1 has an actual keyboard. Battery life is excellent some settings out of box kill the battery and dont need to be on. Next iphone has way slower 3g speeds than the G1. The iphone which is so polished doesnt even have copy, cut, or paste in its browser, lets not forget it locked to holy hell. Can you say open source its the greatest, try that with your iphone either it dies in a plume of smoke or survives to see another day. This by far was a good competitor to the iphone, unlike other phones i.e. Samsung Instinct.... Wake up battery life on the iphone is the same or very close but, Google/HTC/Tmobile dont want an exact copy of the iphone they need something new and different for the people who just arent iphone friendly. P.S. I love My G1 Have Had It Almost A Month And Its Better Than My Friends Iphone 3G He Cries When We Look Up Sports Scores On The Go Cause I Give Him The Numbers Lmao!!!! Look @ The Advantages.
damn losers can't use a phone right, if you would please read the user manual before complaining.
whoever that thinks that the G1 is to complicated for them are just complaining because they can't manage to use them right, i guess it's just too good for you
this phone has many good thoings but not somany godd / bad ones too. it inmpress new but once they did, i now have. nice
ccb, 08 Nov 2008I returned my g1 also. The battery life totally sucked! Did they charge you a $10 restocking fee?No Restocking fee in the UK, As i bought from T-mobile direct rasther than in a shop ? something to do with distance selling rules in the UK means you have upto 14 days (might be 7) to change your mind and return the item, Plus i'm a T-Mobile business customer so they tend to look after me a little better :-)

I have returned my G1 to T-Mobile under the 14 day return scheme as i think it is a very poor design.
Firstly it feels cheap and plastic, the keyboard mechanism is clunky not smooth & i think quickly will break.
It is very awkward to use, for texting the position of the keyboard is all wrong, the camera is pointless as there are no settings for it meaning it is virtually impossible to take a good photo. bluetooth headset support only, Very Very poor battery life.. I could go on but basically i think you will get the picture..
This is a MUCH OVER HYPED phone, i'm sure in time Android will prove to be great, but at the moment there is nothing to make it stand out from the crowd, and combined with a handset that also is not very special, means this phone is actually a very poor 1st effort from Google / T-Mobile
the battery life starts out bad, but actually gets better the more you use the phone. originally got mine two weeks ago, and was averaging bout 3hrs of use between charges, up to 6-7hrs now.
My only complaint is with the camera. no settings. NO SETTINGS! cant do anything that even a razr can do. hopefully someone will develop a patch to allow sepia tones, change picture quality & resolution and have video record capabilities
is it possible to download the android OS onto another phone like HTC touch HD (or maybe xperia x1)? if so how?
first i used n-96 but it was not so good so i took nokia 8800 carbon. after it i took g-1 of t-1.now i have samsung i-900 omnia
Well obviously google should have made its own phone or commissioned a company to make something unique. Android will pop up on all sorts of phones and it will never be a perfect OS for a particular phone and have correct support because how can you support an OS 100% when you dont know exactly what its running on. This is why the sidekick and the iphone are so great. They have unique hardware and unique software and developers can tweak the OS's of these devices perfectly and address specific problems. Android lacks this.
I agree with the whole polished thing. My G1 is more of a puzzle than a phone.. and its more of a computer than a user-friendly phone. I have a computer. I want a slick, easy to use phone with everything, not something I have to fiddle with. A tech toy is exactly what it is, not something for the general public.
I just dont see the hype. The battery life is extremely bad, the handset is large and weird. Who cares if android is open source? To pay a few dollars for an app you want is no big deal. People just dont seem to understand that just because Android is open source doesnt mean a thing unless something breakthrough is developed. What do u think thats gonna be? I would rather have a much more polished phone like an iphone, where the software was built specifically for the hardware. Give it 6 months, u will see that nothing great is going to come of the phone. Its a computer nerds toy, that is all.
how do u get manual update to work? i tried everything. says that "unable to mount to sd card"
yes it could have been sidekick 5 but if it was it most likely wouldnt of had android os on it. It would be the same old sidekick just a different body style.
Hongdolaxi, 03 Nov 2008My friend has got a G1 few days ago, he told me that the battery is extremely bad, he had a sw... morebattery is weak. a friend told me his iphone battery was weak until they came out with new firmware
