The G2 ships running Android 2.2 with the stock Android interface. It's the first smartphone to run on T-Mobile's HSPA+ network, which promises 4G-like speeds. Other features of the G2 include a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen, an 800MHz processor, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
The G2's QWERTY keyboard is outstanding. The buttons are raised about the surface and have good amount of spacing between them. There are also three "quick keys" on the bottom row that you can assign to open your favorite applications.
The only aspect of phone's design that concerns us is the slider hinge, as it feels a bit weak.
