    T-Mobile G2x and the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Smartphone Review - T-Mobile Sidekick 4G


    (Page 2 of 2 )

    T-Mobile's Sidekick 4G is an Android smartphone created with messaging fans in mind.  Besides its messaging-friendly design, the Sidekick 4G also offers plenty of additional features.  The Sidekick 4G is available for $99.99 after rebates and a two-year contract with T-Mobile.


    The Sidekick 4G is shipped running Android 2.2.1.  Some of the Google-related features to expect include Gmail, Google Talk, Google Calendar, Google Maps, and YouTube.  You also get access to the Android Market and its huge catalog of apps.

    Basic phone features of the Sidekick 4G include a speakerphone, conference calling, an alarm clock, a calculator, a calendar, and other organizational tools.  The smartphone's phone book is large enough to hold plenty of contacts and all of their relevant data.  For enhanced contact management, social networking data can be integrated into the phone book.

    Additional features of the Sidekick 4G are headlined by Bluetooth with support for stereo headsets and hands-free kits.  Voice dialing is supported, as is visual voicemail.  You can connect to the internet via T-Mobile's 4G network or Wi-Fi.  The phone can act as a Wi-Fi hotspot, and you can also make phone calls over Wi-Fi.  USB tethering and integrated GPS are other additional features worth mentioning.

    The Sidekick 4G's messaging features are impressive.  You get text and multimedia messaging with a twist.  There's Cloud Text, which allows you to send and receive text messages from your computer.  There's also Group Text, which lets you send mass texts with ease.  Instant messaging is another option for when you want to have quick chats with friends.  For more of a face-to-face interaction, there's mobile video chat.  For email, users can access their POP3 and IMAP accounts.  In addition, the Sidekick 4G can sync to Microsoft Outlook.  Email attachments can also be viewed with ease on the smartphone.  As with most smartphones today, the Sidekick 4G offers social networking too.

    It's not surprising that the Sidekick 4G comes with a healthy number of multimedia features.  The Media Room offers you access to music and videos.  It has a media player, as well as accessibility to programs such as YouTube, T-Mobile TV, FM radio, and Slacker Radio.  You can play games as well.  Thanks to the fast 1GHz processor, you won't have to worry about lethargic performance.  If you want to involve your standard television, you can do so using the TV out feature to project what's on the phone onto the TV.

    Not to be left out of the features discussion is the Sidekick 4G's 3-megapixel camera.  The camera can be used to snap photos and record video in 720p.  As mentioned, the phone also offers video chat via its front-facing camera.

    The Sidekick 4G's design is nothing out of the ordinary.  Still, it looks good in your choice of black or magenta.  The phone is portable and easy to carry, measuring 5 inches tall by 2.4 inches wide by 0.6 inch thick.  The phone's 3.5-inch touchscreen offers sharp graphics and solid responsiveness.  Physical controls include four keys that sit in the corners of the phone, as well as a small joystick for navigation.  Sliding the phone's screen upwards reveals a full-QWERTY keyboard.  The keyboard is ideal for messaging and is spacious.

    The Sidekick 4G from T-Mobile definitely has some appealing features.  Its full-QWERTY keyboard should attract messaging fans, and its other features make it a well-rounded smartphone for T-Mobile subscribers.
