Review: LG Optimus T
For music playback, the LG Optimus T comes loaded with the stock Android music player. It lacks advanced playback controls or a graphic equalizer, but it does have plenty of cool search options. Plus, if you add a new app that supports music searching, like Pandora's streaming radio app, this gets added to the music player's capabilities, so you can jump from listening to Elvis Costello on your music player to creating a new Elvis Costello music channel on Pandora in one quick step.
There is an FM radio on the Optimus T, with a nice app that lets you preset stations and find your favorite local broadcaster quickly. As with other radio-equipped phones, you need to plug in your headphones to work as an antenna with the radio app. It seemed to work well in my tests, picking up the same stations that I could find on my car stereo.
It's worth noting that the speaker on the Optimus T is loud enough to make the phone a fine music player, even without headphones attached. Of course the tiny speaker lacks bass, but for vocal heavy tracks, music sounded nice and clean, even at the excessive volume levels the Optimus T is capable of hitting.
