Review: LG Versa
The Versa browser's home page is the newer Verizon portal. The way the browser works is identical to other Verizon touch screen phones. While you can browse in either portrait or landscape mode, I found landscape to be a bit easier to manage most of the time.
Along the bottom of the screen are 8 little icons that let you do different things with the browser, such as go back/forward, zoom in/out, go to your home page, go to your bookmarks, etc. These are no-brainers to figure out and use. The full menu, which is the right-most button, lets you do some nifty things such as automatically include the current URL in a text message. You can also change the settings so that the display shows the web sites in the most efficient way possible, and you can look at a mini-map feature, which can be helpful when navigating large web sites.
My absolute favorite feature is the tabbed browsing feature. In landscape mode, there are three tabs across the top of the screen, which can all hold active web sites. Switching between them was instantaneous. The first three web sites you load automatically go onto different tabs. After that, you'll have to pick which tab you'd like to over-write with a new web site.

For the most part, web sites load quickly. Google loaded in about 2 seconds, while Phone Scoop took almost 10 seconds to load the full HTML version. Sometimes the screen's unresponsiveness gets in the way of the browsing experience. Trying to enter text into a search box was particularly frustrating at times.
The Versa lets you change a number of features to make it more your own. It comes pre-loaded with several themes, some wallpapers, and other images. You can adjust the menu fonts and dialing font size. This means making the fonts just a tiny bit bigger. The biggest parts of the Versa that can be customized are the three different home screens. You can also change the screens themselves and re-order them, and add a fourth if you wish.
