Review: HTC Amaze 4G
As I mentioned earlier, testing in NJ and NYC, browsing sessions were lightning quick. There was no delay in loading web sites, and everything was fast, Fast, FAST. But NJ and NYC has really good T-Mobile coverage. The browser itself has been reskinned by HTC and has a slicker look to it than the stock version does. It offers all the tools and features that you expect from the Android browser.
Phone Scoop has noted in the past how HTC's Sense user interface is one of the best when it comes to user customization. The Amaze isn't any different in that regard. Sense lets users adjust about every element of the home screens, wallpapers and other behaviors of the phone. For example, Sense phones offer different modes befitting for different usages. You can create a "work" mode that prioritizes email, hides games, and centers on your work functions, or a "Play" mode that emphasizes the social networking and music apps.

The customizable lock screen, in particular, will delight many users. This is an added bonus to the Sense 3.0 software. You can choose just about any app as one of the home screen shortcuts.
