T-Mobile myTouch and myTouch Q Video Review
      08/07/12 05:30 PM

They're back, and this time they're made by Huawei. The T-Mobile myTouch and myTouch Q are the affordable Android smartphone twins for summer. These new models replace the LG manufactured last generation myTouches; and yes it's confusing that the names never change even though the phones do.

The myTouch and myTouch Q are identical in terms of specs, $49.99 contract pricing and design with one salient difference: the myTouch Q has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard while the non-Q is a standard slate phone.

For the price you get a rugged smartphone with decent, though outdated specs. The myTouch twins run on a single core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with Adreno 220 graphics, 1 gig of RAM and 2 gigs of storage. There's a microSD card slot to expand storage, and both phones have Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi with WiFi calling and the mobile hotspot feature. They have front 720p cameras and rear 5MP cameras with an LED flash.

The 4" 800 x 480 LCD display is sharp and clear with none of the graininess we used to see on budget Android smartphones. The myTouch and myTouch Q have HSPA+ 4G, but in our tests download speeds couldn't touch the more expensive HTC One S and Samsung Galaxy SIII.

The bad news? These smartphones run Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread, and budget phones rarely see OS upgrades, so don't expect ICS or Jelly Bean. The phones will be available August 8 in your choice of black or dark red.

Here's our video review of the T-Mobile myTouch and myTouch Q, made by Huawei.
