Review: LG Revolution
The Web browser on the LG Revolution is top notch. It's the standard Android browser, but that's good enough. Web pages loaded very quickly over Verizon's LTE network (when it was available). Even over 3G, web sites loaded quickly. As noted earlier, speed tests topped 11Mbps under LTE coverage, and it was noticeable during web sessions. Web sites jumped to life and populated all the content in a snap.
The LG Revolution offers the standard laundry list of customization features, but adds a few as well. Some of the new ones include the categorized main menu, and the ability to create and manage those categories. I also like the slightly different take LG uses for setting up home screen widgets, apps, and shortcuts. Wallpapers, ringtones, and all that stuff are laughably easy.
