Engadget Review

The myTouch 4G Slide is certainly a worthy contender in the race for best cameraphone, but Nokia's N8 still rules for now.

I love this phone! The keyboard isn't as awesome as the G2 or G1's before it, but it's perfectly servicable. It has an astonishingly good camera. I find Sense annoying but I just flashed ICS and solved that problem, but I'll admit the ICS ROM I flashed is a little rough around the edges. I think as long as you're cool with vanilla (Sense 3) this is an awesome phone, and hopefully the ICS situation will improve when CM9 support drops.

The myTouch 4g Slide is a great Android QWERTY slider. Probably the best one out there, especially on T-Mobile. Arguably its best feature is its camera, which has great flash and zero shutter lag, with lots of options and shooting modes, including Panorama. HTC Sense 3.0 looks great with plenty of themes to choose from. The phone is also pretty powerful, packing Gingerbread and a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 3 processor. And as with any Android phone, there's plenty of customization and and apps available. This is one of T-Mobile's top phones right now, and the best one with a QWERTY keyboard.
