T-Mobile recently shipped us its budget-friendly $50 myTouch Q and myTouch Android smartphones. Both devices offer a 4-inch display and a single core 1.4GHz processor, which suggests they are pretty low-end, but we were actually really impressed with the hardware design. The myTouch Q offers an excellent hardware QWERTY keyboard and really solid build quality. We love the small chin at the bottom of the device, for example. Unfortunately, we’re also a bit turned off by the phone because it’s pre-loaded with a ton of bloatware and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is now two generations old.

Still, for $50 the myTouch Q is a very attractive handset that should please anyone looking for a simple Android smartphone on a budget.
