Review: LG Cosmos Touch
For music playback, the LG Cosmos Touch isn't bad. Since this isn't a 3G phone, it doesn't get bogged down with Verizon's horrible V Cast software. The music player is basic and effective. The controls are a bit small, but still finger friendly. The phone had trouble finding my tunes at first. I sideloaded music from my laptop, but music files must be in Verizon's my_music folder or the phone can't find them. Simple enough. The phone doesn't come with a microSD card, which seems cheap, but it handled my 16GB card with no trouble. I also appreciate the standard, 3.5mm headphone port up top. Too bad LG didn't include a music widget. You can only play your tunes with the music player open. There's a music player mode that shuts off all other features (phone, messaging and data), but there's no way to leave the music player and type a text message while rocking out. At the least, I would have liked music controls from the lock screen. You can see your album art and track listing, but you can't control the music while the phone is locked.
