Unboxing the T-Mobile G2

Unboxing the T-Mobile G2

I’ve gotten used to getting new phones in the mail on a regular basis, but it’s a little more exciting when you know that they phone you’re unboxing is the one that will be replacing your outdated G1.  As most of you know, T-Mobile is launching the HTC made G2 (HTC Desire Z) on October 6th.  I am among the lucky few who have actually received the phone a bit early.  Over the next few days I’ll be rigorously testing the G2 for all its worth, but for now I hope you guys will enjoy my unboxing pictures.  The box itself it reminiscent of T-Mobile’s HTC HD2, though the white does take away a bit of the sexyness.  The phone comes with the typical microUSB cable/charging adapter and a pair of 3.5mm headphones (something only T-Mobile seems to be including lately).  It would have been nice ot have a little pouch included for the G2, but I guess you’ll be on your own for that.

The T-Mobile G2 has a pretty solid feel to it and it surprisingly pretty similar in size to the original T-Mobile G1 (though it is significantly less thick).  The brushed aluminum exterior finished give the handset a unique look which seems to pull its designs cues from Google’s Nexus One.

If you have any questions about the T-Mobile G2, feel free to leave us a comment.

    First : Do you think that you can replace the 1300 mah battery with a more powerful ( like the one of the orignal Desire or Nexus One? )

    • I’m sure third party companies will come out with higher capacity batteries, but I’ve found that the G2 performs faily well with the battery it has. With heavy day to day sue, I’ve been going 14 hours before hitting the 15% battery warning.
