It's an okay phone. It lasted me a long time, but then the screen kinda stopped changing to landscape mode when I slid the keyboard out. At the time, it was one of the fastest phones and I loved it. It definitely hasn't aged well though.

Not worth the money

I've had this phone since it came out. Its nothing special and does not get service anymore for no apparent reason. It cant handle too many apps or any physical abuse. The first time I dropped it was on carpet and the camera's protective lens cracked

Solid and Entertaining
While other Android phones may boast 'faster' processors, this phone is fast and will out perform most others but what really makes it GO is not the hardware but all the software bells and whistles. Because of everything it can do, it does take some time to get to know and tweak to the performance level you would like. This is one phone that has not bored me because of everything it can do. I'd be hard pressed to find something better.

Left the Vibrant for MyTouch
The myTouch Slide is a SOLID performer. It's running on a slower processer than the Vibrant, but it held onto the network signal MUCH MUCH better and I never had an embarrasing call on this phone. The phone sports an edited version of the SENSE UI from HTC and I felt it was not so overbearing and greatly improved. Using this device, I said "now this is what SENSE should look like". I was impressed with Tmobile's modification. I appreciated HTC's ability to craft a fine device with this phone. I've used the HERO and EVO on Sprint.The myTouch screen visuals POP. It's not an AMOLED display, but the intensity of the screen colors POP.The loaded songs were a nice added addition to the phone, but I went along and added more. I was having dinner with a buddy of mine and she got into my car with her near dead battery EVO and charged her phone for the 30 min drive to the outing. While at the outing she attempted to make a phone call with her dead fly EVO and she couldn't. I was pleased to offer her the myTouch slide so she could make her call, she was happy to use the myTouch for her call.I hung out with another buddy one day, he too who had an EVO. For the entire dinner conversation, he kept checking his battery life, but I was content that the myTouch would hold me until the end of the evening. The myTouch has a VERY nice keyboard, but I found myself using...

This is possibly the worst phone ever
I have had an issue with the MMS- picture messaging since I recieved the phone. I have been dealing with this through tmobile for a month now. They stated that the update would fix the issue. I have recieved 2 new phones with the update and the issue is still occuring. Their ability to help their customers is non existant. I have sprnt over 40 hours on the phone with them trying to resolve this issue. If you are thinking of getting this phone......don't. Wait until they fix these issues.

Goldilocks In AndroidLand
This phone is an absolute winner. I had Sprint service and I had the EVO and tried every other Android on the Sprint network, but couldn’t find the right speed, with the right battery life, with the right glitch free experience, with the right size where I didn’t feel as if I would drop it. I felt like Goldilocks, “This Android is WAY too big and the battery doesn’t last long at all. This Android fits nice, has good battery life, but it’s WAY too slow oh and what ancient technology is the resolution on the screen.” (At TMobile) “ This Android is just right!” The myTouch Slide 3G (HTC) has been a nice mesh of features, speed, call quality, signal strength, size and battery life. Tmobile does have inconsistency transfer rates, but when it’s fast it’s FASTER than an 800Mhz Android on Sprint and when it slows up, just move the phone to a different location and keep transferring. My TMobile signal strength was more stable for me than Sprint. There are a few known areas where my Sprint service would drop a call consistently. I drove through those areas on a call on TMobile and the call was sustained with no degradation in call quality. I’m not ready to claim network superiority, but I am pleasantly surprised. If Sprint had anything like the myTouch Slide on their network, I would have never ventured out to try other Androids. Music player is AWESOME. It has a keyboard and SWYPE...

No major issues at all with MTSlide. Its fast and responsive. I've had the phone for over a month and its crashed on me once (don't know cause of that one either) so its very stable. Don't believe the hype over it just being 600mhz phone, you will not notice any major lags and if you do they are very tolerable. All in all I give it an A-.
This phone has a slide out Qwerty but I hardly use it. Before this phone I wouldn't even consider buying a phone without a keyboard but this phone is so fast, smooth and responsive you just don't need it.
The only minor issues I have is the "my mode" feature could be SO MUCH more useful. I hope they upgrade that and soon. I would love to be able to walk into work and my phone automatically goes into vibrate and my home page changes then have the reverse happen when I leave for home. Right now its kind of one trick pony but the potential for it is huge. Also the speaker could be a bit louder when playing music.

Mid-range Smart Phone with Surprising Potential.
This is my fifth Android phone; previous phones I've had were the G1, MyTouch 3G, Nexus One and the X10i. I purchased this phone to replace the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10i, expecting it to not perform as well as the Snapdragon-powered phone. To my surprise, this phone is very responsive and snappy compared to the Nexus One in nearly all situations. Many, including myself, thought that the Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset that the Slide uses would be its downfall, but it has proven to perform well in almost any situation. Thanks to the relatively low resolution screen and having the same graphics processor as the Snapdragon chipset, this phone's 3D gaming capability is on par with the Snapdragon and Cortex A8 powered phones; games like ExZeus and Wave Blazer runs very well on the Slide. Gaming aside, the phone's 600 MHz processor is more than up to the task; internet browsing is consistent and smooth, application switching and multitasking is fluid. The only issues I had with this phone is internal storage limitation (Possibly fixed with Android 2.2), and some creaking sounds from its plastic casing. Otherwise, this is an excellent phone that so far does everything I've asked of it, and I will keep it until my contract with T-Mobile expires by the end of this year.For those who wants a fast running smart phone but are worried about battery life, I seriously recommend at least trying this phone at a T-Mobile store. Certainly it doesn't have the fastest chipset or a high resolution screen,...

The Upgrade to the G1: If the G1 and the Hero had a baby
Hi this phone in all respects is a true upgrade to the g1 with its nice 4 row keyboard which gives as much tactical feedback as the hd2 in all respects great keyboard. This phone is smexy. The Expresso Htc sense drew me back a lil but after a while the ui made my blood rush. This phone is much faster then the dext/cliq the mytouch and the g1. The Genious button was genious :) lol. The screen is nice and big but not too big like the nexus my other phone b4 this (returned due to problems) and cuz i wear boys skinny jeans and phones tend to get suck lol. But all and all people will start rooting this phone making it as fast as any other high end phone. This phone is reccommended. THe cuztomization on the ui is almost rediculous.
