Review: Kyocera Echo

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  6

Browser

The Echo uses the stock Android 2.2 browser. The browser software and controls are unchanged when compared to other Android 2.2 devices, though the dual-screen set up goes a long way to making the overall experience a lot more fun.

For example, being able to see two live web sites at a time, rather than being forced to use clunky software tools to jump between open tabs. Being able to use the browser and email, SMS, phone app at the same time is also insanely useful.

Browsing speeds were wildly inconsistent on Sprint's 3G network. Sometimes web sites loaded in the blink of an eye, and other times they took nearly a minute to arrive. The Echo's browser performed flawlessly on Wi-Fi, though.



Customize

The Echo allows for about the same level of customization that other Android devices to, although its expanded modes of operation may make it feel like the Echo is far more customizable. When you get right down to it, the wallpapers, ringtones, etc., can all be set to the exact same options as on any Android device.
