Is the web browser really bad?

I almost cant even use the web browser on my new X, as it is so slow. Much faster to just connect my iPad to my phone's LTE. Is it just me or is that normal? I know the vehicle shows an LTE signal, nice and strong. I have also found many websites i can not log in to. I use NEST cameras, but can not log in to my account because no keyboard screen pops up to allow sign in, and when I try to log in to iCloud.com I get a blank screen at the login page (see picture). Not the end of the world, but i would like to be able to use the large screen and web browser more.

Any car with MCU2 should be pretty decent. Only MCU1 is close to unusable. Google thinks the browser is not secure, so their login may not work. There's a workaround to use Google to sign into a 3rd party site.

I have MCU2 and it's a far inferior experience to a phone/tablet. Basically no reason to ever use it over a mobile device except as a gimmick. Basic web pages take a long time to load, and more complex websites are hit or miss if they even work.
