Review: LG Quantum

Browser

The Quantum uses WP7's Internet Explorer browser, which is very capable. It's fast, elegant, and works almost as well as the competition. It supports pinch-to-zoom, and full HTML as well as mobile web sites. Double-tapping zooms in and out quickly.

Web pages loaded quickly over AT&T's 3G network. Over Wi-Fi, the browser was extremely fast. I was very pleased with the browser's speeds.

IE for WP7 makes it fairly easy to add open tabs, add favorites, search for items on the page and so on. I had an easier time using the Quantum's browser (compared to the Surround's) due to the presence of the QWERTY keyboard. Having the four-way directional buttons on the keyboard goes a long way toward helping fine-tune text editing and typing out URLs.

The browser is really quite good, and will disappoint few.

Customize

Windows Phone 7 offers a pretty standard set of features that can be customized. The home screen tiles can be rearranged, deleted, and otherwise organized how the user might prefer. The main menu is stuck in the list view, however. Being able to pin apps, shortcuts, web pages, etc., to the home page is a nice touch and makes up for the lack of interactive widgets.

Users can also adjust the background color (white or black) as well as the color of the majority of the tiles.
