Review: Pantech Ocean 2
The O2 is an apt browsing device. It has Opera preloaded, as well as the Helio browser. The Helio browser works well enough, and has a tabbed menu system that makes navigating the web pretty easy. I like how easy it is to change the view of the Web page, zoom in, show the images, see the mini map and so on. Having a search function built into the browser is also a nice touch, a it speeds up the time it takes to start searches. The history tab also works well, and shows the most recent 19 sites you've visited.
When typing in URLs, the browser will automatically insert .com, .net, etc., so you don't have to type those in. The text tool also shows you the sites you've recently keyed in to make entering the text faster.
Browsing speeds were a mixed bag with the Helio browser. Sometimes the O2 loaded pages instantly, and other times it seemed to chug on forever before bringing up a site. It didn't seem to matter what sort of network coverage was available. I had good experiences in areas with little coverage, and bad experiences in areas with good coverage. The Opera Mini browser was a bit more consistent in terms of speeds.

The O2 lets you configure a number of different aspects of the phone. Wallpapers/backgrounds are easy to set, as are customized ringtones, alerts and other noises. You can alter the view of the main menu a little bit, and control some aspects of how/where the phone stores files/data.
