Review: Samsung Focus S for AT&T
Internet Explorer 9 is a solid alternative to the likes of the Android and Safari browsers. The speed improvements made by Microsoft are real, and both mobile and full HTML sites look really good on the Focus S's display. Browsing speeds were a bit hit-or-miss, depending on network coverage, but the browser did the best it could with whatever signal was available. It supports the standard list of features for a smartphone browser, including pinch-to-zoom, double-tapping to zoom, multiple tabs, etc.
Windows Phone 7 Mango offers few customization tools. Users can recolor, rearrange, delete, and otherwise organize how the Live Tiles behave on the home screen. But that's about it. The main menu is stuck in the list view, which gets kind of old if you install a lot of apps. Being able to pin apps, shortcuts, web pages, etc., to the home screen as Live Tiles is cool. Beyond these simple controls, however, the Windows Phone interface remains relatively locked down. It would be nice to see even the color palette for icon/background colors changed up a bit.
