    HTC Magic Review - The HTC Google G2 Phone is Just Magic

    HTC Magic Review - The HTC Google G2 Phone is Just Magic

    The HTC Google G2 Phone is the latest entrant into the android touch screen smart phone

    line up of HTC. As it is a “special” one: this phone has not yet been released in the

    United States, and has only a very limited release internationally, I have great

    interest of full disclosure to let you know this mobile phone. The HTC Google G2 Phone

    is known internationally as the HTC Magic, and it is a pretty snazzy phone.

    Hardware
    The HTC Magic smart phone Google G2 is enclosed in a cool white plastic case. It has a

    slightly protruding bottom that does not hinder the sleekness of its design in any way.

    A wide 3.2-inch touch screen sprawls on the face of the phone. The LCD TFT screen is

    vibrant and colorful with its high HVGA 320X480 pixel resolution. The screen attracts

    fingerprints but this is a commonly found blip in most touch screen phones in the

    market today. There is also a trackball for navigation. The absence of a physical

    QWERTY keyboard on this wholly touch screen operated phone has helped the phone knock

    off some of its weight and appear slimmer.
    Software
    The alluring wrapping of the HTC Magic is augmented by the android software platform

    that it uses as its brain. This software ensures fast and high performance of

    applications of the phone. The superior quality android operating system also allows

    you to add new applications and games to your HTC Magic smart phone through the android

    market by exploring options like ‘shopping’, ‘arcade’, ‘social’ and ‘travel’.
    Android software in the mobile phone also implies more customization- users can tailor

    the handset to meet their specific needs by swapping the home screen, applications or

    even the dialer style. The Android software also lets you access third party

    applications and not just the core applications and data on the phone. This makes the

    HTC Magic more open.
    The phone has integrations with Google applications. Google Talk, G mail, Google

    search, Google calendar are some of the applications accessible via the HTC Magic.

    Google Street view has been integrated with the phone’s mapping applications making it

    possible to view streets virtually to find out the way. The phone’s GPS facility

    supports efficacious working of maps.
    Multimedia
    The HTC Magic has a 3.2 Mega pixel auto focus enabled camera for the masterpiece

    photograph.. Its powerful video recording capabilities allows you to post videos

    directly on You Tube or share videos with friends via e-mail or MMS. It is capable of

    playing media files including videos and audio files. The video looks perfect with the

    480x320 pixels screen and the music sounds beautiful. It supports only video formats

    like MP4 and 3GP which is slightly less when compared to the current standards of

    android mobiles. That’s doesn’t matter, third party software like

    Nidesoft DVD to Mobile

    Converter
    can convert DVD videos to HTC Magic video and

    Nidesoft Video Converter can

    convert all other formats video to HTC Magic video. It also supports rang of audio

    files including MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV and OGG, and the third party software can also be

    used for audio files.

    Other interesting features:
    The phone has high performance Internet mettle due to the presence of HSDPA with a

    speed of 7.2 Mbps and Wi Fi support. Fast downloads make your mobile Internet

    experience on the HTC Magic a joy. Stereo Blue tooth connectivity is also present in

    the phone.
    The battery life of HTC G2 is much longer than HTC G1. The stand by time is 660 hours

    for WCDMA and 420 hours for GSM. The talk time is 400 minutes for WCDMA and 450 minutes

    for GSM. The 1340 mAh Lithium-ion battery is rechargeable.
    Conclusion
    Based on what I’ve seen, the HTC Magic seems like a really solid device. We like the

    Magic, maybe even love it a little bit. But it is a little disappointed at its price of

    about 6oo dollars, much higher than the new iPhone 3G S and the new Palm Pre.

    The phone reminds me of the Samsung Instinct, which is not one of my favorite phones. Plus its missing a keyboard. Which Palm did a study and found that most users miss a keyboard on their touch screen phones which I know I would. So they made the Palm Pre with a keyboard plus its so tiny the phone fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. While the HTC magic looks pretty rectangular and long.

    Signature is a Gwenibe original.
