The HTC Magic’s mapping abilities are top notch, with Street View drawing gasps of amazement....
Runs new ‘Cupcake’ version of Android. Now captures video. Much thinner than G1 ...
Confusing keyboard character masking.
Not the fastest processor.
Poor hardware buttons, bad visual keyboard design, some creaking in use, misguided Faves Gallery system
The Faves Gallery doesn't always display the most up-to-date information. Its camera photo quality is subpar.
Camera images somewhat grainy, Faves Gallery offers limited social networking features, 3G signals fade in and around buildings
No video calling support. Android App store still has limited apps compared to Apple’s App Store.
No Android Market or Google apps
Lack of 3.5mm audio port
No Google Maps, No Android Market App, No Bluetooth data transfer, No FM radio
Same old interface as the G1, miniUSB connector requires an adapter for using a traditional 3.5mm headset, Awkward connectivity to a computer, Lack of multitouch
Poor camera quality and features.
QWERTY keypad needs improvement; no 3.5mm audio jack; camera lacks flash; battery life not great.
The lack of flash and zoom add up to a hugely disappointing camera and video camera.Look and Feel...
Not radically different from the G1. Some may miss the QWERTY keyboard...
