Review: LG Optimus T
The LG Optimus T uses the stock Android Web browser. It did a fine job rendering pages to look like their desktop counterparts. Our own homepage at PhoneScoop looked perfect on the phone. As I mentioned earlier, I had trouble with the data connection in the Web browser. Occasionally pages would stall or come to a complete stop while loading. Every time, quitting the browser and starting again from scratch solved the problem, but it was a recurring issue, nonetheless.
The Optimus T cannot handle Flash. It is simply not powerful enough, so the option is not available, not even as a download from the App Market.

The LG Optimus T has all the standard Android customization options, with few extras from LG or T-Mobile. The phone can handle live wallpapers, though I found this could hurt performance, making the already problematic touch response even more sluggish. Otherwise, you get the standard assortment of shortcuts and widgets for the homescreen. I especially like that apps can add new shortcut and widget capabilities automatically, like the Facebook phonebook folder that groups together all of your Facebook contacts who have listed their phone numbers on the social service. There are plenty of powerful options for customizing the homescreen panels, but dig any deeper and you're stuck with the basics that LG provides.
