T-Mobile myTouch Review
Call quality on the T-Mobile myTouch was pretty good, as there wasn’t any background noise and voices sounded clear and natural on both ends. Reception was also good in our area, as we had 3-4 bars showing and we didn’t drop any data connections or calls.

The included 1540mAh battery is rated to provide 9 hours of talk time or 19 days of standby time. During our testing, we were able to get up to 6 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge, or about 8-9 hours of mixed usage, which means you might want to plug it in to charge while you’re at work.

When running the Quadrant Benchmark app, we got a score of 930, which ranks it between the Samsung Galaxy S and the original Motorola DROID X. Meanwhile the AnTuTu benchmark produced a mark of 2785, which 3000 is average for mid-level smartphones.


Conclusion:

When it comes right down to it, there’s a lot to like about the T-Mobile myTouch. It has an overall pleasing and simplified design, runs Android Gingerbread, and has the LG Optimus UI for some extra usability and eye-candy. The 3.8” AMOLED display is noticeably smaller than the more common 4.3” displays, yet does provide nice looking colors and clear text. 4G connectivity is also on-board, which allows for quick downloads, though Flash-heavy web sites can become slow and unresponsive. For under $80 with contract, it is clear that the T-Mobile myTouch will be a big seller for the budget conscious.
