Review: LG Xenon

Music Camera Photos/Video Browse / Customize Extras  

The music player is found in the shortcut menu or through the main menu, or you can place a shortcut on the media home screen. It has the typical links to AT&T's music service and applications, where you can download content and sign up for XM Radio, etc.

The main screen in the music app allows you to sort through your library via artist, playlists artists, etc. Once you've started playback, the player shows album art, and has easily used buttons for jumping forward/backward and play/pause. There is also a mute button and a volume level indicator, which I really happen to like, and then buttons to set repeat and shuffle. The option menu on this screen lets you access the equalizer, song information, go to the home screen and even turn on a visualizer.

If you happen to go out to the home screen with music playing, a little progress bar appears at the top of the screen that tells you what you're listening to and acts as a shortcut back to the music player.

The music sounded good through the phone's speaker. The inability to attach regular 3.5mm or 2.5mm headsets is a bit of a pain, especially since LG didn't provide an adapter in the box. Stereo Bluetooth headsets were really the best option.
