It’s been a great year for the T-Mobile faithful with plenty to cheer about in the Magenta world. We’ll have a year in review up soon to recap all the highs and lows that T-Mobile has undergone in 2010 but, for now, we want ask an important question to all of the T-Mobile world. What is the best phone of 2010? We’ve included a list of the likely suspects below but feel free to write in your own or ask me to add something else to the list. You can only vote once so think carefully. What phone did you truly lust over this year?

We look forward to T-Mobile greatly expanding their lineup in 2011 and, with CES just days away, we should get a pretty clear image of what T-Mobile has planned. Stay tuned!

    i don’t have one, but it’s gotta be the Nexus One, IMHO! I have Vibrant and if GPS worked flawlessly, and Samsung held all of the promises *coughFroyocough* it would have had some potential here in the vote. Don’t know much about new Nexus S, or G2 though they seem to be viable contenders.

      Nexus S is nothing like the Galaxy S man. Different feel, Stock android 2.3, Smooth operation. Its just so great.

        no sweetie I meant that MY EMERALD aka myTouch 4G beat the NEXUS S in speed tests. Yet the Nexus S is running aoo the dings and jingles allegedly. It’s called regress in this case for Nexus.

      Its definitely not the greatest phone spec wise, ill agree to that… but the phone is water proof, scratch proof, has the best most sensitive screen ive ever seen on a phone, my quadrant test for the phone goes to 1800 which id say is pretty good for a midrange phone… the flashlite allows me to view full sites without having to re load them from the mobile site (not to many can say that about their phone) . Motoblur keeps you more connected than anything, and it finally runs smoothly on this phone. The battery is the best EVER: i used the phone (texting, games (gameboid), live wallpaper, web, calls, etc…) and the battery lasted for a good day and a half with no charge. that kicks all other smart phones waaaaay out the park. the open Gl graphics makes games and android with blur run super smooth. the camera on the phone with flash, is simply amazing, couldnt ask for better! overall id say this is the best android phone to come out this year. or atleast in its price range.

    G2 all day for me. Almost stock Android, best of both worlds with touchscreen/physical keyboard combo, usage of the HSPA+ network and a really solid design. And no, the hinge issue isn’t an issue, save for a small handful of users who had legitimate problems.

    This is probably the first phone I’ve had in a long time where I’m completely satisfied and not drooling over what’s coming out next. It just works for me and my needs/wants in a mobile device.

  • Anonymous

    I think the MyTouch4G could make a solid run for number one phone for 2010 regardless of carrier. I have had one since a week after release and love it. The only bad thing I could say about it is the speaker sucks, but if that’s the only thing that’s not superior to almost every other phone I’ve ever touched, I can live with that.

    • Anonymous

      Superiority eh? If you’ve only touched feature phones then yeah the MT4G is easily superior. The Vibrant’s(Galaxy S’) SAMOLED screen and Hummingbird processor is easly superior. Unfortunently “plasticy” build and lack of updates hold it back dramatically.

      • Anonymous

        You’re right about the screen on the Galaxy S being better. The Hummingbird processor is a bit debatable since it’s better raw specs doesn’t translate to better performance in the Vibrant. The MT4G gets great quadrant scores, but also just runs smooth.

          I downloaded only 1MB for a test now i’ll wait for my bill and report back to you guys. I have another line with data plan as well. I just switch sim cards to see if i can get web access on line without data. On line I can see that they record MB on both lines except under data it shows 0 even though lower it displays history with dates and amount of data. On the other hand the line with web access shows both amount of data and lower it displays detailed history. I’ll see what will happen but since it shows 0 for data I don’t think they will charge me.

          I tied Vibrant , hd7 and some other edge phones and data would not work but on G2 it does.

    Why isn’t the HD2 on this list? It may have WinMo 6.5 but it is easily upgradeable to WinMo 6.5.3 and Android 2.2/2.3/Whatever comes next. And soon to be Upgradeable to Windows Phone 7, easily T-Mobile’s most versatile and underrated phone

    The g2 is the best. IPhone look out

  • Anonymous

    I have a Nexus One and the new MyTouch 4G. I didn’t think the Nexus One was considered a T-Moble phone so I voted for the MyTouch 4G. Others are voting for the Nexus One so I am changing my vote to the Nexus One as well. The MyTouch 4G is very close 2nd the quality of construction, looks, software and running on the HSPA+ network is one fast phone. My download speeds are between 3.5 to over 7 mb during peek hours. Upload speeds are a very slid 1.4 mb. I switch back and forth using booth phones but I must say no phone feels as good in the hand as the Nexus One.
    THANK YOU T-MOBILE for such a great line up of devices.

  • Hoppysport

    This is a tough question because we all have very different requirements. I was coming off of the Blackberry 9700 and bought the G2. Great phone, but the landscape keyboard was too big a reach for me. I also needed seamless Outlook syncing…something Android doesn’t do well.

    So I bought the Dell Venue Pro. Still getting used to Windows Phone 7, but I definitely do like it. It’s a beautiful piece of hardware…truly well-crafted. But what made a huge difference for me is the portrait slide-down keyboard. Is is as nice as the 9700′s? No, but it’s not far off.

    I just wish that BB would get it together and make a slider with a Snapdragon processor and a decent web experience. They should hire or simply read these terrific poster’s and get their heads out of the sand.

    My vote is for the MT4G, I tried the G2 and the way the keyboard snaps out was worrisome plus with swype, the physical keyboard isn’t needed. Espresso really isnt too bad on the MT4G it doesnt slow the phone down at all, it also feels great in the hand. With all that said, my MT4G is rooted with CM and overclocked to 1.8ghz stable! over 2800 quadrant! BTW I did not root or change OS because of problems with the stock rom, I just wanted to try something new

    ive had the HD2, MyTouch 3G, Nexus One, iPhone, Blackberry and Vibrant this year. I must say I like the Vibrant but the Nexus One grabs my vote. Can almost careless about speeds until I get throttled or kicked to EDGE. Just love embarrassing the hell out of my iPhone friends that think their phones are fast on ATT. All in all, I voted Nexus One. You will never understand until you hold one in your hands how awesome this phone is. Build quality, screen size, speeds, battery life, HTC, having a phone where people are like “what is that?”, unlocked… Best phone period.

    As a owner of mtg4 and vibrant was real close. The display on vibrant is in a league of it own and had me thinking about sending my mt4g back a many of times during 14 day return
    . The mt4g edged it out in everyday functionality, and feel if vibrant had gotten froyo update to unlock some of its hardware potential it would have easily one. G2 gets honorable mention, I feel its more of a niche phone at this point for those who need physical keyboard.

      No not better than the Nexus S, not at all. Nooooooooooooooooooope. But its all subjective. Personally I like the MT4G design and build than the G2. As for Nexus S its the best one even my homie on his iPhone 4 was jealous, he was certainly a Apple fanboy but when I let him play with the Nexus S the fanboyism depleted. If you know apple fanboys, they don’t give in for shiit until today. Better camera and display.

        • Emuniz1215

          And it doesn’t make sense that a phone that came out after those 2 wouldn’t have it. I know the processor doesn’t allow it but it is still a deal breaker. The nexus s may have 2.3 but my g2 will have 2.3 before the nexus s has hspa+ because it will never have it. See what I’m saying ?

        • Anonymous

          No I do not at all see what you are saying. It makes no sense what so ever. I hardly get above 2mbps HSPA+ isn’t launched thoroughly enough in America for it to be a factor in making a decision between phones. Nexus S is more long term in any case. The average speeds most people get is below 7.2mbps so until t-mobile upgrades to 42mbps not having HSPA+ doesn’t matter. We will still get the same speeds on average as someone with an HSPA+ device until that rollout to 42mbps of which isn’t until halfway into next year or the end of next year so HSPA+ is really moot at this point because by the time your phone averages HSPA+ speeds the Nexus 3 will already be in production. How is it really a deal breaker? I highly doubt you are maxing out speed on a HSPA device. If you aren’t doing that then it really does not matter. If HSPA+ is a deal breaker then that is a shame. Its truly a great device. The best one out by far. There are less problems with this than any other phone.

          talk when you can compare it to the Mytouch or G2

    • HYE_TECH

      First of all, it just came out recently so I’m assuming that people who are voting are picking phones they are using. Secondly, the Nexus S is like the assortments of Galaxy S phones out there but It lacks a microSD, full 720p HD recording, I have a Vibrant and a G2 (thanks to TmoNews…)…the Vibrant is an excellent competitor to the iPhone. The Nexus S has a NFC chip that will not be widely adopted anytime this year or first half of next and a FFC cam that didn’t even include a 1st party app from Google. IMO, the Nexus S is a joke to the “Nexus” line of Google phones. Its more like an updated Nexus One. Evolutionary not revolutionary. It’s not much different from the Galaxy S lines and thats sad because it’s suppose to set the bar.
