Review: HTC One V for Virgin Mobile
The stock Android 4.0 browser is decent. As far as rendering web pages goes over Virgin's 3G network, it does just fine. I was really quite impressed with how fast the browser operates and how good web sites look on the display, despite its somewhat constrained size and lack of 4G radio. Do yourself a favor, though, and download Chrome 1.0 for Android. It is a fantastic browser that's available to Android 4.0 devices, and worth skipping the stock browser for. It's faster, cleaner, and more intuitive to use.
HTC's Sense 4.0 lets you fine-tune nearly every facet of the One V's behavior and appearance. The modifications that matter most to most people, such as scenes, skins, wallpapers, and ringtones are a web of interlaced and related settings that take some time to learn to use properly. The most useful tool of Sense is the one that lets you customize the lock screen shortcuts.
