Review: Samsung Alias 2
The Alias 2's music player (standard in the Verizon software) offers the usual features and functions. It is found in the Media folder. You can add your own music to your library, download single tracks from the V CAST Music Store, or choose to subscribe to Rhapsody.
Incoming calls pause the music, which resumes once the call is completed. Jumping around does, however, interrupt the music from time to time, so listening and multitasking is not going to be perfectly seamless. With the phone closed, you can control the playlist with the exterior touch buttons, but that's all. You can't launch the music player with the phone closed.
This is another feature that Verizon is choosing to leave unrevised.

The one thing that I liked is that the Alias 2 has stereo speakers. Playing music through them was acceptable, which is more of a compliment that we can pay to most phones. The sound wasn't too tinny or harsh, even with the volume set pretty loud.
