Review: Samsung Conquer 4G
The Conquer 4G is the latest Android device from Sprint to use the Sprint ID concept on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Think of the IDs as themes, and you'll be all set. If you want, you can set the Conquer 4G to behave in stock Android 2.3 mode. In fact, this is the out-of-the-box iD installed.
Sprint ID packs are collections of applications, home screen settings, wallpapers, shortcuts and widgets that are based on a theme, such as "The Big Apple" or "Fitness" or "Team RadioShack” (no, I didn't make that last one up). When a Sprint ID pack is activated, it completely reorganizes all the details of the home screen based on that particular theme. In the case of the Conquer 4G, there are no iDs preinstalled, so you have a blank slate with which to work. You can pick from other themes such as: Business Pro, Essentials, Sprint, Auto Enthusiast and more.
Once installed, each theme can be customized itself and then saved. Finding and installing the themes isn't difficult, but 10 months after the first Sprint ID phones emerged, there are still only a handful of ID packs. Worse, each ID pack downloads and installs a predetermined set of applications. You can quickly end up with a lot of bloatware and applications/services on your phone that you'll never use
