Choosing the right phone for you takes some research, recommendations, and in some cases, the need to actually hold a phone in your hand and see how it feels and responds. For those in the first two stages, here’s some research and recommendations for the best T-Mobile Phones LG wise that will look great in your hand and feel great on the wallet (and they’ll get the job done, too!).
T-Mobile myTouch and T-Mobile myTouch Q
The T-Mobile myTouch and myTouch Q by LG are fan favorites and are two of the easiest to use phones available from T-Mobile. Both phones have a beautifully simple design and full touch-screen, and both are Android-powered. The difference comes with the keyboard. While the myTouch is a completely touch-sensitive smartphone, the myTouch Q is equipped with a slide out keyboard for those who prefer the feel of actual buttons, rather than typing on a screen. The myTouch and myTouch Q are great options for anyone looking to make a seamless switch to a smartphone. A guided setup takes you step-by-step through the process of getting your phone ready to use, and tutorials are right there to answer any other questions. Once set up, an uncluttered home screen complements the phone’s simplicity, as does the ease of finding, adding, and organizing apps from the Android Market. Both phones even feature a Genius Button that responds to simple voice commands by making calls, sending texts, and searching the web. Undoubtedly, this phone is a great choice whether you’re looking for something simple as a first smartphone or something sleek and advanced to keep up with changing style and technology.
T-Mobile LG DoublePlay
One of the most popular of T-Mobile phones, LG DoublePlay is all about being social and staying connected. This phone features a totally innovative design with two touch screens, one covering the full front of the phone as you’d expect, and the other hidden with the slide out QWERTY keyboard. Dual screens keep you connected to more social networks and more involved with friends than ever before, so you’ll never miss a conversation. For a phone designed to keep you connected through tweeting, group texting, uploading and downloading, surfing the web and streaming video, operating at 4G speed is critical – and this phone does just that. The DoublePlay even comes preloaded with demos of some of the most popular games on the Android Market, like SimCity™ Deluxe, Tetris, and Bejeweled 2 (a personal favorite), so you can put both screens to use right out of the box. And last but certainly not least, this phone can serve as a hub for your can’t-miss shows and favorite music. It’s all at your fingertips when you’re on the go.
T-Mobile LG Optimus T
The LG Optimus T is another great entry-level smartphone, but with features on par with devices more than double its price. Like the myTouch phones, the Optimus T is preloaded with Voice Actions for Android, letting you make calls, send texts, play music, and surf the web with simple voice commands. And since it’s an Android-powered phone, you’ll have access to the web and thousands of Android Market apps from anywhere you find yourself. The LG Optimus T has all the basics you’d expect from a smartphone, along with the advanced technology and features that come with being an Android made by one of the world’s most recognized cell phone companies. Combine that with Wi-Fi, 3G, and tethering and Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities from T-Mobile, and you have a phone that’s perfect for anyone. (psst, – prefer prepaid phones? There’s also a rumor that MetroPCS, a prepaid cellular carrier, will be getting the LG Optimus 2)
Occasionally some fan-favorite phones, like the ones above, become available for even less with “refurbished discounts.” To be considered refurbished, the phone must have been purchased and then returned during the phone’s trial period. These phones, which could have been returned due to an error or simply because the owner decided the phone wasn’t for them, are tested, fixed (when necessary), and reloaded with the most recent software. Typically, these phones can be purchased for up to 75% off the original price and are reconditioned to high quality. So whether you’re buying a phone for a friend or family member, or are just lacking in cash, refurbished phones are a great and cost effective alternative to the brand new variety.
