Review: Samsung Dart
The Dart comes with the same browser that's on every other Android phone. It is capable, no doubt, and offers the tools/controls necessary for most browsing needs. Paired with T-Mobile's 3G network, it performed very well. I was pleasantly surprised with the speeds I saw under 3G coverage. The full HTML version of Phone Scoop, for instance, loaded in a jiffy. When under EDGE coverage, it wasn't so quick, but sites still loaded fine.
The Dart can be customized to the same extent that most Android phones can. The seven home screen panels can be left blank or stuffed to the gills with apps, shortcuts, and widgets. I noticed that the Dart doesn't have quite as many widgets on board as other Android phones, but this may be related to the smaller selection of pre-loaded applications.
