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.

Review: LG G4 for AT&T
AT&T's variant of the LG G4 does little more than trade one set of bloatware for another. The performance is about on-par with Verizon's model, which is to say this Android phone does a really good job.
Review: Nextbit Robin
Nextbit hopes the Robin will convince people to jump into the cloud feet first. This Android smartphone prioritizes which apps and files get to stay on the phone, and which are relegated to Nextbit's servers.
