Review: Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G for MetroPCS
The Attain ships with the stock Android browser, as well as some MetroPCS-branded web tools (MetroWeb, etc.). The stock Android browser is a known entity. It works well, though it suffered due to the Attain 4G's signal problems. It was nearly unusable when under 1X coverage thanks to the poor radio performance. I often had to resort to using Wi-Fi. Browsing speeds were much better under LTE coverage, but not as fast as what's available from AT&T or Verizon Wireless.
The Attain 4G can be customized as much as any other Android smartphone. As mentioned, there are seven home screen panels, plenty of widgets, and the app menu can be arranged to your liking.
