T-Mobile G2, First Boot and Initial Impressions (video)

Advertisement

So after we unboxed the T-Mobile G2 and showed you all the accessories, we can’t keep you waiting any longer. Let’s fire up T-Mobile’s new flagship Android-powered phone and see what she looks like!

The first thing you’ll notice is that the device’s initial boot is a little bit faster than current phones. First boots always take longer than subsequent boots.

Once booted the setup screen is very easy to skip, and equally as easy to find again to input all your login credentials. There are now 7 home screens that you can swipe between — and the majority of them have been pre-loaded with lots and lots (and lots!) of T-Mobile and Google apps. All pre-loaded apps have been set to automatically update (via the Market’s “Automatically update” feature that’s present in Froyo devices). The first time you load up the Market you’ll start pulling all these updates, which came down relatively quickly considering the several apps that were being updated at the same time.

To see just how fast the device is, take a look at the video!
