Review: LG myTouch Q for T-Mobile
The stock Android browser performs acceptably on the myTouch Q, but not amazingly. Sure, the myTouch Q supports T-Mobile's HSPA+ network at 14.4Mbps, but it rarely reached download speeds higher than 3.6Mbps. On average, browsing speeds were decent, but not great. The Android browser itself is a fine browser.
The LG myTouch Q offers the standard laundry list of customization features, but adds a few as well. Some of the new ones include the categorized main menu, and the ability to create and manage those categories. I also like the slightly different take LG uses for setting up home screen widgets, apps, and shortcuts. The tool slides up from the bottom of the screen and give you a small selection of widgets, etc., in grid form to choose from. I get it, it makes sense. You can easily parse between widgets, apps, shortcuts, and folders using this tool thanks to some sorting buttons at the bottom. Wallpapers, ringtones, and all that stuff are laughably easy.
