Hardware and Design
The T-Mobile myTouch is made by LG. On top of the phone you have your power/sleep button, headphone jack, and micro USB port. On the left hand side you can find the volume rocker. There is nothing to be found on the right hand side or on the bottom. Above the screen you have the earpiece, myTouch logo, and a front facing camera. Under the screen you have 3 touch buttons, those are the menu, home, and back. On the back of the phone you have the LG and T-Mobile logos, a speaker, and a 5 mega-pixel camera. There is no flash on the myTouch. If you take the back cover off you will find the battery, a 2GB micro SD card, and the T-Mobile SIM card. The micro SD card slot can hold up to a 32GB micro SD card. The phone dimensions are 4.8 inches by 2.4 inches by .38 inches. It has a very sleek design and it is also very light weight at only 3.7 ounces. The myTouch is available in 2 colors black or white.
