The Z750a's browsing performance is better than most clamshells. Even with EDGE data speeds, the browser is very capable, and pulls down graphic-intensive sites quickly.

With the phone set to the defaults, MEdiaNet is opened by hitting the center of the D-pad from the home screen. AT&T's home page loads quickly. The home page lets you find all the usual stuff, such as weather reports and news headlines. You can customize it to your location so that your weather pops up on the screen. Using the left soft key opens up the options menu. This is what you use to get to other sites, including bookmarks, or sites stored in your history log. I particularly liked that you can send URLs as SMS messages.

You can optimize the view between full screen, landscape, and text only, as well as pan around and zoom within web pages.

In 3G coverage zones, the browser was almost lightning quick. Browsing was truly fast. Pages loaded in a snap, and with the QVGA display, they look simply incredible on the screen.

Using the menus to access options was on par with other browsers. As with all mobile phones, we suggest you load up as many bookmarks as possible to cut down on the amount of text entry you have to do.



I was a bit disappointed that the Z750a only comes with two preloaded themes. Neither of them turned me on. If I really wanted to improve the look of the phone's menus, I would be forced to pay AT&T and download a new theme. You can customize which four applications are accessed with the D-pad, you can add shortcuts to the shortcut menu at will, and of course each contact can be assigned unique ringtones and pictures. Setting pictures from your photo album to serve as the wallpaper is a snap, and there are a decent number of pre-loaded ringtones to make selecting one that's right for you easy enough.
