Review: HTC Touch Pro2
Music is just another selection in the TouchFLO UI. The default view shows you a set of album covers from your library, which you can shuffle through. There is also a large button at the top that takes you to the Sprint Music Store (Sprint version only). I bought a few tracks from the store. They downloaded just fine and sounded good.
The TP2 can sync with Windows Media Player, or be used as a mass storage device. This lets you drag and drop music files from your computer and transfer them directly to the phone's internal memory. Transferring music this way was reasonably fast.
With the music icon selected, the left soft key is what you need to press to get into your library. HTC has dressed up Windows Media Player a little bit, but the basic menu architecture is the same. You have to choose from artists, albums, songs, playlists, etc. Pick what you want and press play. You'll shoot back out to the main screen, and you'll see the album cover art and some basic on-screen controls to pause the music and skip forward/backward tracks.

Alternately, you can open Windows Media Player itself from the TP2's menus and use the regular player. The regular player offers a bit more choices for customizing control, but it doesn't have an equalizer to adjust the sound.
Music playback sounded good through headphones, though it wasn't stellar. Using the headset adapter stinks — if you're a T-Mobile customer. Sprint customers get a 3.5mm headset jack, which works with most regular stereo headphones. That gives the Sprint version an edge in my opinion.

The HTC 10 is here to wage battle against flagships from Apple, LG, and Samsung. This Android smartphone is perhaps more evolutionary than revolutionary, but that shouldn't take away from its attractive design, powerful multimedia features, and excellent performance.
