Review: Huawei Activa 4G for MetroPCS
Music options on the Activa are a bit befuddling. It ships with the "Android Market" and not Google Play. The Android Market itself needs to be updated to the Google Play Store first. Only then do the modern Google Play Store and Google Play Music apps become available. Other than that, the basic Android MP3 player app is available, as is Rhapsody.
On the video side of the equation, you'll be pleased to know that the Activa ships with Kung Fu Panda 2 loaded on the microSD card. You can watch the movie via the old, native Android video player app. Other than that, the native YouTube app is the only other real video app offered on the Activa.
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).
