Review: HTC Freestyle
Disappointingly, the Freestyle does not include a capable browser. It's a no-name, feature phone browser that barely manages to work with HTML sites. The browser's tools are limited in scope, and pages load so slowly that it is best to stick with mobile-optimized web sites that you know are bare bones and slow-network friendly. The browsing performance is so poor, that I wonder why Opera Mini isn't included on this device. I attempted to download Opera Mini, but it wouldn't work. At least the included browser supports pinch-to-zoom.
The Freestyle can be customized perhaps more than any other feature phone on the planet. This is all thanks to HTC's Sense user interface and the options it allows. Themes, scenes, wallpapers, ringtones, home screens, menus — all of it can be adjusted to better suit individual tastes.
