The G2 or Magic or Sapphire looks very close to the G1 but without a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The G2 has five buttons on the lower part of the smartphone and is slimmer and lighter than the G1. The G2 is the first Android phone without a physical keyboard. According to Wired, the on-screen keyboard is good but is not as good as the iPhone or the Pre. That’s not good.
