While at yesterday’s Samsung Continuum event, I was able to make new friends in the tech blogging world, as well as meet a few Huffington Post bloggers. When one of them had a MyTouch 4G on hand, it was only obvious for the “take photo” part of my brain to kick off and get a quick hands-on. This red MyTouch 4G has an incredible build quality, and uses what you (or I) could call “refined Nexus One parts”, since it’s built by HTC, after all. The T-Mobile inspired Sense UI may be a bit intrusive, but since it’s Sense on Android 2.2, it feels very much at home and more importantly, useful. And it works.
While I didn’t have time to test browser speeds or the cameras, the MyTouch 4G was running on “4G” (or more precisely HSPA+) , and it did look like the connection was very much active, like when 4G is active on the Epic 4G. While this may not mean much, I spoke to the writers and they felt the HSPA+ connection was very fast. Either way, expect me to get a test unit (eventually) and get a real crack at the MyTouch 4G myself. One more shot after the break!
