Review: Huawei M735
The M735 ships with Opera Mini on board. Even with Opera's page compression helping out, web performance is very slow due to the pokey 1XRTT network. It is so slow as to be nearly useless. Sites as simplistic as Google.com took nearly a minute to load. More complex web sites, such as CNN.com mobile took longer than two minutes. Many sites never finish loading, they just time out, so you get half a web page delivered to the handset.
MetroPCS worked with Opera to make an Opera Mini optimized version of its home screen. That means it actually works well with your finger. But it is inconsistent. All of the MetroPCS-branded pages are perfectly designed for touch screen use, but most other web pages are clearly not. The MetroPCS home page includes a number of links to other destinations (Facebook, Twitter, et al.) as well as generalized content (sports, news). You can also use the typical Opera Mini tools to jump to other pages, sync with your desktop, and so on.
It will render HTML web sites, but poorly so. Almost all web sites are so tiny as to be unreadable. You have to zoom in significantly. Thankfully, zooming in isn't as painfully slow as loading sites in the first place.

As mentioned earlier, the five home screens of the M735 make it somewhat flexible. Users can arrange what limited apps and content there is for the M735 on those home screens, as well as manipulate the app drawer. The main menu can be rearranged, but the basic appearance can't be altered. Beyond that, the M735 lets users change up ringtones, alerts, wallpapers, theme colors and so on.
