Best Phone On Tmobile?

Posted Apr 27, 2012 at 3:54 pm in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

I am a tmobile customer currently. I have had a Mytouch 4g for about a year and a half. Somehow I got an upgrade after only a year. I’ve been waiting to see what phones come out. I’m curious what everyones opinions are on the best tmobile phones.

I have been wanting the Amaze 4G, I love HTC and the specs are great, android version doesnt matter because I will be rooting it and putting ICS on it haha. But also my friend Michael pointed out that HTC’s touch sensors sometimes arent that great. He prefers the Samsung Galaxy S2 and says I should go for that. Theres also the One S now but the problem I have with that is the non removable battery, I cant be tied to an outlet in the middle of the day. Theres also the galaxy nexus which would be 400 full price, or I could possibly wait a while for the Galaxy Note which has been seen in the wild or the Galaxy S3 which should come out around summer.

What are your guys’s opinions on tmobile phones?

    Well, I’m pretty sure the One S has a Samsung display. Never heard of sensor problems on those. It is already running Android 4.0, thus the necessary drivers to run 4.0 are very available! The battery is pretty decent, and the Snapdragon S4 is supposed to be battery efficent.

    GSII has NFC well (I think T-Mobile’s version does) and the whole removable battery thing. Also remember that it will be very hard to have fully featured 4.0 ROM without Samsung giving an offical 4.0 update or leak (unless you don’t care about Wi-fi calling…)

    But the problem with Galaxy S phones and T-Mobile is T-Mobile customizes them to much. The Vibrant has a really strange radio that can cause 911 problems when using AOSP. The GSII is essentially a different phone compared to the international version. It’s bad for custom ROMs. Who knows if that will continue with the GS3…

    I would go for the HTC One S as long as 16GB of data is enough for you. I’ve had mine for almost 2 weeks and it’s been amazing. The camera is down right awesome!

    I just picked up the Galaxy Nexus to replace my G2, and honestly, it’s amazing. I wasn’t sure I was ready to get rid of the hardware keyboard, but it hasn’t been an issue at all. If you can swing the $400 un-subsidized price, I’d highly recommend it.

    If you’re going the subsidized route, I wouldn’t think you could go wrong with the One S. My main gripes about the specs are the non-removable battery, and no NFC, but from everything I’ve read/heard, it’s a pretty quality phone.

    I’d go Galaxy Nexus (I did go galaxy nexus, actually). So you upgrade to One S for $199…you’d probably be able to sell it on ebay/craigslist for at least $499. Plus, you can probably get $200 for the MyTouch 4G. You’d actually end up with a “free” phone, or make a few $ under this scenario, but it takes a bit of effort.

    The $30 wal-mart plan and a Galaxy Nexus are the way to go. Look into it.
