If you need a refresher on the phone, the myTouch 4G is equipped with a 3.8 inch WVGA display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon single-core 1GHz processor with 768MB of RAM aboard. Only one camera is on the unit, a rear-facing 5MP shooter that captures video at 720p and has LED flash. A VGA front-facing camera takes self-portraits and lets you video chat. Of course, the 4G in the phone's name indicates that it has HSPA+ connectivity.
Back in the day (less than a year ago) these were pretty good specs, but today you would have a dual-core processor and most likely an 8MP camera on the back of the top of the line handsets. Still, not everyone is able to handle, or even wants to handle, the power of today's smartphone. And others are more interested in the idea of getting something for nothing.
