T-Mobile MyTouch Q (Huawei

The Good The T-Mobile MyTouch Q has quick 4G data plus a physical keyboard. Its low $50 entry price is compelling. The phone provides good performance on a budget.

The Bad The T-Mobile MyTouch Q runs dated Android software. The MyTouch's screen is dark and has poor contrast. The phone is also big and heavy.

The Bottom Line If you can live with its dated software and heft, the T-Mobile MyTouch Q is an alluring keyboard slider deal.

T-Mobile MyTouch Q (Huawei

Android phones with honest-to-goodness real physical keyboards rarely cross my desk these days. That’s why I jumped at the chance to give the new $49.99 T-Mobile MyTouch Q by Huawei a spin. This device is a follow-up to the first MyTouch Q made by LG but sports a bigger screen and faster processor. It may not be small, light, or slim, but for its low price this handset serves up basic Android, nimble 4G data, plus a usable keyboard in an attractive budget package. If you can live without a physical keyboard, T-Mobile also sells a version of the MyTouch, identical in every way but without a slider for the same price.

Design
Besides its recycled name, the T-Mobile MyTouch Q (Huawei) might also confuse you with its doppelganger looks. The handset is practically a mirror image of its predecessor, the first T-Mobile MyTouch Q manufactured by LG. Both phones feature slide-out keyboards and are crafted from modest black plastic.

The two devices are similarly sculpted in gentle curves as well and have back covers with soft-touch coatings. I prefer the old MyTouch Q's rear surface, though, which has a smoother more premium feel compared with Huawei’s model. That said, each of the phones' back plates are easy to grip and soak up fingerprints admirably.
