Review: Coolpad Quattro 4G for MetroPCS
The Quattro offers a decent range of media options, all of which are anchored to the M Studio application. M Studio is MetroPCS's branded content store. MetroPCS customers can purchase and download music tracks, ringtones, ringback tones, as well as stream a limited selection of videos. The video includes a scattered assortment of cable-style programs, such as Real Housewive of New Jersey, from an array of content providers, such as Bravo, ABC, ESPN, Disney and many others. The streamed content can be viewed for free, and the quality was pretty good.
The other option, of course, is to skip the Metro app and go with Google. The Google Play Music and Video stores are both on board, and can be used for music, video, book, and magazine purchases. Google has done a good job of expanding the amount of content available from its store.

Other options on the Quattro include the Rhapsody Music app/service (which costs $10 per month to use) and a simple MP3 player for those who like to sideload their music.
All the music and video that I played through the Quattro sounded great through my favorite earbuds, though controls for altering the sound (such as EQs, etc.) were limited.
