Review: Pantech Ocean 2

Maybe I am just picky, but the O2's inability to support microSD cards large than 2GB is really annoying. Most of my cards are 4GB or 8GB. Sure, the O2 comes boxed with a 512MB card, but I'd prefer to be able to just pop in one of my existing cards (with all the content already loaded) and be on my way. I was out of luck.

That gripe aside, you can side-load the included card with your content or download it from Helio. I dislike that the O2 requires a proprietary Pantech data cable to attach to your computer, (where's the standard mini-USB or micro-USB?), but the cable does come in the box.

Music and video content are organized in one folder. It doesn't offer any thrilling or never-seen-before features. It's a basic music player that gets the job done. It has a nice array of EQs to choose from, including a user-adjustable one. It has a sleep timer, so you can set the phone's player to go off at a particular time if you're the type who likes to fall asleep listening to music.

Playback quality is good. I thought music sounded full and rich through my own headphones. It even sounds good through the phone's speaker, though it won't win any audiophile awards.
