Review: Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G for T-Mobile
The Blaze offers both the new(er) Google Music application and the older stock media player. The media player is a generic piece of software that can be used to access and playback media stored on the device. The Google Music application lets you stream your library from Google's servers over the network. It also lets you purchase music from the newly christened Google Play Store.
Music can be played back through attached headphones, or sent via Bluetooth to properly-equipped Bluetooth devices. Sound quality of music playback was quite good through both.
Slacker is the only streaming service preinstalled, but obviously Google Play (formerly Android Market) is chock full of alternatives.

As far as video goes, the Blaze has the stock Android video player, YouTube, T-Mobile TV, Netflix, and the Google Play application on board for renting or buying movies. The Blaze easily handled video content that I side-loaded, and it worked well for viewing most video content that I could find.
The Blaze also comes with Samsung's Media Hub. Users can access the Media Hub to download movies and television shows, but not music. Rental fees and sale prices vary by title. It basically dupes the functionality of Google Play.
AllShare is on board for those who like to share their multimedia files with DLNA-compatible devices, such as HDTVs.
