Website Reviews: 

"While the MyTouch 3G has much going for it-- a lightweight design, a gorgeous screen, and the 1.5 update to the Android operating system, it's not without its flaws -- the on-screen keyboard is far from perfect, for example."

PC World, August 2009

"The most immediately noticeable thing about the myTouch 3G is its new styling. Gone is the clumsy, Sidekick-like chassis of the G1, replaced with a classic, scalloped shell and — more importantly — a much smaller size."

Wired, July 2009

"One of the things that T-Mobile is really pushing with the myTouch 3G is its range of accessories. T-Mobile will be offering headsets, protective covers and cases, speakers, and even user designed rear battery covers that can be used to personalize the device. All in all, the myTouch 3G is a very nicely designed device with solid build quality and a fair number of included accessories."

MobileBurn, July 2009

"With the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G, the Google Android OS gets a much-needed boost. A few complaints remain, and some users may bemoan the lack of a physical keyboard, but we approve of its eye-catching design and interface, improved features, and satisfying performance."

CNET, July 2009

"If you've been waiting for an Android phone whose outer design is as cool as the user interface, the T-Mobile myTouch 3G is certainly a more polished and appealing looking phone than its predecessor. The T-Mobile myTouch 3G is a stylish sign of things to come, but we're already waiting for what's next."
