Review: LG Incite
You wanna rock? The Incite lets you get your groove on in the form of Windows Media Player. You can open via the Start key or by diving into the main menu. Windows Media Player is sort of buried in the main menu, and it falls in the "media" tab. The menu orders things alphabetically, so it is the last application on the page.
You can sideload songs directly to the phone via USB cable, or stuff them onto a microSD card first. The WMP menu segregates your content by music, videos, TV, playlists and what was played last. The music menu gives you several different ways to sort your library: all music, artist, album and genre.
Once you pick some songs and start playing them, the music player interface itself is basic and utilitarian. You can download different skins to dress it up a bit if you want. Once you start playing music, all of the controls are on the screen itself and you need to touch them to play/pause, or skip forward or backward.
The right soft key opens up the music menu. There are a few selections that let you adjust the player's options and check song properties. The options give you only basic control over the player.
LG was smart and included a 3.5mm headset jack on the top of the Incite. Plugging in my favorite pair of headphones, music sounds pretty good. There are a handful of the usual AT&T music applications also thrown into the media menu, including XM Radio, access to music videos and music communities. The Incite also has an FM radio (headset required).
