Review: Samsung Glyde
The music player is the same software that Verizon has been using on its phones for some time. Having the touch functionality does speed things up a bit...as long as your thumbs arent' too fat. There is a row of buttons placed at the bottom of the screen when in music player mode. More than 50% of all my attempts to hit any of those buttons, which are placed right at the edge of the phone's screen, resulted in a mis-fire. I always ended up pushing the button abovethe one I intended. This was aggravating.
But otherwise the player itself is unchanged. The one odd thing is that in order to use the music player, the phone reorients itself sideways. Why you can't play your music with the phone in the standard orientation is beyond me.
You can sync your tunes via the software, or just load them into a folder titled MyMusic on your microSD card.
