Review: Motorola Citrus
The music experience on the Motorola Citrus was very disappointing. The phone uses a basic Android music player. It does a fine job with simple playback controls, and it offers the advanced search features I have always enjoyed in the Android player. But there are no sound enhancement or equalizer options, and no fine-tuned controls for scanning through long podcasts or music tracks.
The music player had trouble finding my music. I tried synchronizing with DoubleTwist, but this gave me problems, and after a couple syncs the phone was no longer recognized by my laptop. I tried dragging music onto the SD card in mass storage mode, but the music player did not see my new additions. I was able to find them using the included File Manager app, but they were not added to my music library. Eventually, I had to turn the phone off and on again for the library to recognize my files.
