Review: Kyocera Milano for Sprint

The Milano runs a nearly stock version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread and also has access to Sprint's iD packs.

Sprint ID packs are collections of applications, home screen settings, wallpapers, shortcuts and widgets that are generally based on a theme. When a Sprint ID pack is activated, it completely reorganizes all the details of the home screen based on that particular theme. Once installed, each theme can be customized itself and then saved.

Aside from the Sprint iD packs and themes, the Milano's stock Android 2.3 experience looks and feels clean. There are five home screen panels, but due to the smaller display they can't hold as many shortcuts or widgets that larger displays can. The main app menu is a simple grid of apps listed in alpha order and it can't be rearranged or altered.

As for performance, it is obvious that the Milano is running a slower processor. It has an 800MHz engine providing motivation, but it's not enough. Screen transitions are slow and stuttery. Apps are slow to open, slow to close, and multitasking is so tortoise-like that it is easier to just exit apps fully and open new ones the old fashioned way.
