Description

UC Browser for Windows Phone is a web browser designed for speed, but it lacks the advanced features of other apps and offers a below par user experience.

Lacking in features

When you open UC Browser you enter the speed dial mode, which is a fully-customizable tiled view of your favorite websites. It lets you easily and quickly access these sites each time you start the app.

There is a range of other options, such as night mode, incognito browsing, full screen viewing, and speed mode. You can also chose between the desktop and mobile version of each site. As you can see, UC Browser is still quite light on features.

The need for (even more) speed

While mobile pages load pretty quickly in UC Browser's default setting, the display and user experience in speed mode is awful. The webpages are very difficult to navigate, meaning that the mobile option is not worth choosing for the sake of a few milliseconds.

While you're on the speed dial homescreen, the address bar is right there at the bottom of the display. But when you start browsing it gets hidden away in the menu at the bottom of the screen, which further slows down browsing. This really isn't acceptable in a browser built for speed.

Accessing tabs is simple, as is moving forward and backwards on pages. Multimedia content works much better than in previous versions and you can now watch videos in full screen within the browser.

Fast, slick but not easy to use

UC Browser has been improved with the past few updates and, while it may be fast and look slick, several improvements still need to be made to simplify the user experience. Until then, UC Browser is unlikely to become the top choice for Windows Phone users.
