Review: Samsung SYNC
The Sync comes with the Access NetFront 3.3 browser. This browser allows you to visit both WAP as well as regular HTML sites. It renders either type of site quickly and does a good job of fitting desktop sites into a single-column view. If this does not work, there is a desktop view with horizontal scrolling as well.
Although you are locked into the black and orange menu theme with the Sync, almost everything else is customizable. You can use your own pictures (in .bmp or .jpg) as wallpaper, including on the external display. You can also use your own mp3s for ringtones, as long as they are smaller than 600k in size. Unfortunately customizing message alerts is not as simple. This is a shame since the included alerts, as well as the included ringtones, are disappointing.

You can also customize the home screen shortcuts assigned to the four directions on the D-pad.
All files, whether they were transferred to the phone or purchased or created on the phone are accessed through the My Stuff application. Each type from photos, to music to Java applications is sorted into its own folder. From there you can access all the files as well as do any sort of standard file management.
