T-Mobile myTouch Q Review
Introduction and Design:

Sharing the T-Mobile shelf with the LG myTouch is the myTouch Q model, where the “Q” simply means it has a physical QWERTY keyboard for entering text – not the character “Q” from Star Trek TNG.

The overall feeling of the myTouch Q is pleasing, as it fits well in the hand with rounded corners and has a soft-touch coating on the back to provide a good grip, though it is a bit thick at 0.51” and feels a bit heavy at 5.64oz, but this to be expected because of the keyboard.

T-Mobile myTouch Q Review

You can compare the T-Mobile myTouch Q with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.

The display on the T-Mobile myTouch Q is a bit on the small side, only measuring in at 3.5” and with a resolution of 320x480. Since it is a regular TFT LCD, and not AMOLED like the larger 3.8” screen found on the myTouch, colors don’t really “pop” out at you, but images still look OK and text is clear, though outside visibility in the sun is lacking.

Under the display are touch-sensitive buttons for accessing the menu option, home, and back. There is also a dedicated Genius Button to open its included app, which uses voice recognition for completing tasks, such as calling people, sending messages and emails, searching for local businesses, etc. On the top of the phone you’ll find the power/lock key, microUSB port, and 3.5mm headset jack.

Sliding open the QWERTY keyboard is relatively simple, due to it being spring-loaded, and can be done with one hand. You are treated with a simple 4-row design, which means the top row is populated by both letters (in white) and numbers (in blue). The oval keys provide a nice “click” response when pressed. Unfortunately, there’s not much space between them, and they are relatively flat, which means typing mistakes can happen with long messages.
