Are these 6 T-Mobile models nearing their "End of Life"?
posted by Alan F. / Jan 30, 2012, 4:04 PM
T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide (HTC), HTC Sensation 4G, HTC Amaze 4G, LG Doubleplay, T-Mobile myTouch (LG) and the T-Mobile myTouch Q (LG). The first phone on the list, the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide, had already been cut to "zero" by Best Buy with a 2-year contract, and still offers some decent specs including the 8MP camera with dual LED flash, ClearShot HDR and "zero shutter lag." It also captures videos at 1080p. The HTC Sensation 4G is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and the HTC Amaze 4G rolls with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and was launched less than 4 months ago.
The LG Doubleplay offers a second screen in the middle of the slideout QWERTY in addition to the 3.5 inch screen on the front of the unit. The myTouch (LG) features a 3.8 inch screen, a single-core 1GHz processor and a rear and front-facing camera weighing in at 5MP and VGA respectively. The T-Mobile myTouch Q (LG) is similar to the previous model except that it comes with a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard.
Anyone going to miss any of these handsets?

It wouldn't make sense for them to remove the HTC Sensation and HTC Amaze as both phones are two of T-Mobile's advanced exclusive phone lineup. It's not like T-Mobile has any other major contenders...

If they aren't selling l magenta needs to take it off the shelves. Tmoblile has plenty of at&T's money to spend on a new all-star 4.0 lineup.

umm.. neither one of them sell well anymore. the sensation was nice for its time and it sold well, but the amaze was too much of the same. There was no need to keep the sensation on the line up after the amaze came out. it was also easily eclipsed by the SGS2 which was superior in every way.. always sat beside it.. and when they launched, the SGS2 was 50 bux cheaper. It was a bad move on HTC/Tmobile's part. The top selling phones on tmobile are the sgs2, sgs1, and nokia 710. I think ive sold maybe 3 amazes to my dozens and dozens of samsung phones.

Just so everyone knows, this doesn't mean that T-Mobile won't sell these devices anymore. This just means that it won't be sold on shelves. This isn't effective immediately and there will be plenty of stock in warehouses to last a good while. Besides, the only reason T-Mobile would do this is to make room for better products. This is not bad news. T-Mobile will still sell these devices online so long as they are in stock.

I have a g2x. It needs to die. Now. It didn't seem to have the problems everyone else was having, at least at first. Now I just want to cut my losses with this hunk of junk and grab a Galaxy SII, I'd take a Galaxy SIII If they "announce" it at MWC.

I doubt the Amaze would be going, it's a flagship phone and unless the Galaxy S2 were going, it's staying. Sensation and MT4GSlide have been out a few months but shoudn't be EOL yet. @Squallz506, I think the G2X has been EOL for a while...

its a flagship phone that sells like crap. The S2 will be on the shelf for a long time, just like the nearly 2 year old S1. Why? Because they are STILL the top 2 selling phones. The amaze was never a great seller. Most people return it for the S2. The sensation and the MT4Gslide are not selling either and the sensation has been out for well more than a few months. HTC is having a hard time right now... because it keeps putting out the same crap. Its not going off the shelves right now, but I wouldnt expect to see them much longer. Like oddmanout said, u will be able to buy the remaining stock online for a few months after they are removed from stores.

Sensation owner here and even if the discontinue the Sensation HTC already said It's gettin ICS in March so no big. Just means fewer people will be sensational. Plus they're clearing inventory for all the new phones HTC and LG will be unveiling at MWC. so it makes perfect sense phones have a much shorter shelf life than they use to due to manufactures tryin to get every dollar out of consumers releasing phones a month or two after they're predecessors with minor spec boost.
