"If you’ve been sitting around with nothing to do hoping that someone would post a 10 minute video of the myTouch 4G Slide then by golly you’re in luck! Our favorite unboxing pro, Aaron is back at it again with a lengthy look at the 4G Slide."
This is a good unboxing video. It doesn't go into a lot of the technical details but it does a great job of showing everything else about the phone. I didn't realize how powerful this was until I started researching it for this post - though the video made me want to find out more. As stated in the video it has a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. That has the Adreno 220 GPU which is probably the fastest GPU you can get right now. The rear camera is supposed to be the best one in any phone. It has a rear illuminated sensor like in the iPhone 4 but it's 8MP instead of 5MP in the iPhone. It has enhancements for low-light and it the phone has a mode for taking HDR photos. It can also record video at 1080p. The screen is only 3.7" which I think would be too small for me but that's more a personal preference thing. It comes with an 8GB MicroSDHC card and has MicroUSB and MicroHDMI ports built in. I'm not sure about the RAM or built in storage but the previous model had 768MB of RAM and 4GB of built in storage so it should be respectable. I would love to hear how the battery life is on it. Though it's got a fast CPU/GPU it should have a small die size since it's so new and that saves power so it could use less then the single core Snapdragon's of last year. Do you have a myTouch 4G Slide? I'd love to hear how the battery life is and how you like the phone in general. If you're looking for a new phone on T-Mobile I definitely recommend that you consider this.
