Released as the fourth of google android phone, G4 has another name called Tatto. On the back of G4, it also has a tattoo, showing personality of young people and designed for average consumers’ market. In general HTC G4 has no outstanding features, even 2.8 inches QVGA touchscreen is also a bit disappointing. The relief is HTC installed HTC sense operating interface which HTC has recently developed. It is rich in desktop plugins, very sharp in the look. HTC Tattoo has very rich entertainment resources, and 3.5 mm earphone plug, supports multi media. It has FM radio in the machine and GPS navigation complied with Google Maps. Besides, it has 320 mega pixels camera which supports auto focus and video recording. The processor specification is not so high.
