Review: LG Connect 4G for MetroPCS
The Connect ships with the stock Android browser, as well as the MetroPCS-branded web browser. The stock Android browser is a known entity. It works well, though performance was inconsistent. Pages loaded slowly over 1x, and only slightly better over LTE. I had to resort to using Wi-Fi whenever possible, as the 1x coverage doesn't provide an adequate web experience on the Connect.
The Connect can be customized as much as any other Android smartphone. As mentioned, there are seven home screen panels, plenty of widgets, and the app menu can be arranged to your liking.
