After spending two weeks with the T-Mobile G2, I have a new favorite Android phone. It beats out the Motorola Droid X as my favorite Android phone of 2010 (by a really slim margin). I love the HSPA+ Internet speeds, form factor, zippy CPU/GPU, and vanilla-ish Android. I love that it will be getting WiFi calling and tethering in the near future. That said, it’s not perfect. I wish it had a bigger screen and noise-canceling microphones. Since I’m a Swype guy, the G2’s quality keyboard is wasted on me. I’d also trade the optical trackpad in favor of larger capacitive buttons. Those complaints aside, the T-Mobile G2 would be my first choice if I were buying an Android phone today.
