Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo: Internet

With a decent Wi-Fi or 3G (HSDPA, 7.2Mbps) signal, using the browser of internet-reliant apps is pretty fast, taking around a minute to send an image to a Twitter client such as PicPlz, for example.

Even image-heavy sites with Flash elements, such as TechRadar, were quick to load with a strong signal… otherwise, it's a couple of minutes wait to load a webpage or map.

The browser supports text reflow and colours are bright, though not always very sharp, with images becoming pixelated when zoomed in to read text.

The Sony Ericcson Xperia Neo supports Flash 10.1 and videos can be watched inside the browser without having to navigate out to say, the YouTube app, which is pretty sweet, though standard for Android (*cough*c'mon iPhone*cough*).

Navigating the browser is dead easy thanks to the usual Android Menu button, which means you can switch between open windows, going to the bookmarks page or add a bookmark with ease. It's also simple to share the page you're reading with your social networks.

Bookmarking is as easy as navigating; just click the menu key, dip into Bookmarks and you'll find all your favourite sites ordered by thumbnail, most visited and the general browser history.
