Review: LG Connect 4G for MetroPCS
The Connect uses the new Google Music media player. It has a richer feature set than the older standard music player and lets you stream music that you've stored in Google's cloud. As with other MetroPCS devices, I found the music streaming service didn't work at all when under 1x coverage. It worked better under LTE coverage.
The Connect also ships with the Rhapsody music service on board, which lets you stream music to the device for a monthly fee.Video
The Connect includes a few avenues for video playback. Aside from the stock Android YouTube and video player apps, the newest version of the Android Market (not yet Google Play) offers video rentals/downloads.

There's one red herring on board in the Yahoo! Movies app. Rather than offer movie rentals or streams, it's simply a link to the Yahoo! movie web site for local listings/show times. This falls under the category of pre-installed apps I'd delete (thankfully, you can).
