I love this phone! I have had it about 5 months now. This phone does not have a great camera, but it still has a camera that faces forward, which can be fun. I was impressed with the Android market and the apps it has, compared to the Apple apps. When I first received this phone, I was worried about not having a keypad to type on, but I quickly learned to love the myTouch's touchscreen. I do feel like this phone is overpriced though. I paid $150 with a new contract. My mom got a HTC that was free, and about the same quality. I believe that anyone who loves Androids and wants a new upgraded phone will absolutely love this phone! I sure do!
Gingerbread? Camera? December 2, 2011
As a phone this model is more than adequate. As a camera it is a big disappointment with poor contrast, washed out images and very poor low-light qualities.
Don't bother with this phone (released in November 2010) if you are uncomfortable with the now outdated Froyo version of the android OS. After 13 months on the market and over 6 months of T-mobile promises, the Gingerbread OS update remains elusive for the vast majority of users.
Great Phone for a Reasonable Price March 15, 2012

I have used this phone for a year and a half now, and I love it. It does everything that I could ask of a smart phone! I can use it as a hotspot to provide Internet to my laptop or Kindle Fire! It has access to all the apps you could want, the screen is pretty responsive, and the customization options are endless!
The battery life is the reason I took off a star, with heavy use, it doesn't last more than a couple hours. However, the good news is that it is relatively cheap to buy a pair of extra batteries and wall charger. I did this, and now I always have an extra charged battery (it cost me an extra $10).
The free apps and options for this phone are endless, and I love this phone. While this phone is very sturdy, I definitely recommend a gel case and screen protector to keep your phone safe!
It's not that bad November 23, 2011
When I first bought this phone, I was intrigued by it's multiple features and the touchscreen fluidity but then I started to hate it a LOT because not only did it lag OFTEN, I had to restart the phone several times throughout the day, AND the battery could barely handle half a day of abuse. I was annoyed, and angry at the sales lady because she told me this was the best phone on earth and that the battery is it's outstanding feature. MY ASS it is. Few months after using the phone, I was happy with it since I realized that it's okay for it to have a few flaws because most of the features in the phone are very useful, especially the apps. I learned to love this phone after dropping it on the floor MANY times, and having to go through hateful moments with it. Overall, this phone is a good buy cause i'm lovin' it!
