We have some some important information for those of you planning to pick up the T-Mobile G2 handset, as we have a full spec sheet for you to take a look at, which compares it against the Apple iPhone 4 and Motorola Droid X.
As reported from PC World, the T-Mobile G2 will be the carrier’s next flagship handset, and it’s also the direct successor to the G1. It will be the first handset to run on their new HSPA+ network, which promises speeds of up to 19Mbps in some areas in the US.
The question is though, does it do enough to beat the likes of the mighty iPhone and popular Droid X? A quick glance at the spec sheet and the answer which first greets me is ‘no’.
Firstly, the G2 has the slowest processor (800Mhz) compared to the iPhone 4 and Droid X which both have 1Ghz chips. Next is internal memory, as the G2 only offers a measly 4GB unlike the iPhone 4 which comes with either 16 or 32GB and the Droid X which comes with 8GB. However, you can increase the memory with an SD card so its not too bad.
The most requested feature in current smartphones is the inclusion of a front facing camera for video chats, and it is slightly disappointing to hear that the T-Mobile G2 won’t include one. The Droid X can be excluded since it is a pretty old handset now, but there are no excuses for the G2 – where is it?
If you are interested in picking up the device, I’d advise you to check out the full comparison of specs here. Let us know your impressions on the handset afterwards.
