HTCHTC Magic review at LetsGoMobile : The operating system often proves vital to your opinion on the user-friendliness of the phone, and also reveals a lot about its speed and applicability. Until recently, Windows Mobile or Symbian was generally used for the corporate market, but these days, this selection has been expanded by the arrival of the Apple and Google Android operating system. Unfortunately, I was not able to personally test the HTC G1, but my first impression of the Google Android operating system on the HTC Magic is very positive indeed.

HTC Magic smartphone review

HTC Magic Smartphone review - Google Maps
When opening the menu, you will find a large number of icons. In addition to the standard functions, such as settings and gallery, also Google applications such as Google Maps, Google Talk, Gmail and YouTube can be found. Google Maps lets you find a location and, if wanted, provides directions on the screen. Not a full navigation system. That said, positioning is fast, at first it is quite broad but as more information becomes available about the location, it gradually gets more precise. The latest version of Google Maps, standard installed on the HTC Magic, also features a street view mode. If available, you can actually walk through the streets.

HTC Magic test - 3.2 Megapixel digital camera
The integrated digital camera features 3.2 Megapixel resolution, which is not the highest resolution we have found so far, but it does make us even more curious about the quality. The camera is often only a by-product for a mobile phone like this. But there is not much to moan about when it comes to the final quality of the pictures. The HTC Magic images may not be as large as those of an 8.0 megapixel camera, however, to display on a computer screen or to print up to approximately A4 size, which are the most commonly used applications, the pictures may be even better than those from the many other (on paper) better digital cameras.
