Look and feel

A striking, white handset with an impressive 3.2-inch touch-screen.


Ease of use

The Android operating system and subsequent applications are designed to make your life easier, and it doesn't disappoint.



The camera, video camera and the music player are somewhat disappointing, but the HTC Magic successfully builds on the other features seen in the G1.



A lack of zoom and flash lets the cameras down, but other Google elements such as Street View and the search bar were top notch. The touch-screen is also excellent.


Battery life

Battery life was good, especially considering the many ways in which to run it down.



There are a few issues with the camera, but that aside, the HTC Magic is a thoroughly enjoyable phone to use; the best Android handset so far.
