Review: Samsung Conquer 4G
The Conquer 4G comes with the stock Android browser. It's a good browser, and running over Sprint's 3G network, it performed well in most of my tests. I noticed slower data speed when the Conquer had a weak network connection, but otherwise the browser is just the same as any other Android 2.3 phone.
When under Sprint's WiMAX 4G network, browsing was very quick, though shy of awesome. Web pages loaded in a blink, and apps downloaded in two or three blinks. Using the hotspot feature, I was able to get some good browsing speeds from the Conquer 4G on my tablet.

With access to the Sprint ID packs, the Conquer 4G has a bit more customization options than other Android phones, as long as you don't mind someone else doing the customization for you. The ID packs are pre-packaged. Even though you can adjust them after they are installed, they still pull together an odd and not always great selection of apps, widgets, shortcuts, and home screen arrangements. Personally, I'd much rather design my own, custom home screen and set the Conquer 4G up the way I want it. Thankfully, the Conquer 4G lets you do this, too.
