Review: HTC EVO Shift 4G
The EVO Shift 4G uses the same music player that's on other Sense phones. The HTC-skinned music application does all the same things that the stock Android app does, but it does them with more style. You can sort through tunes in the usual way, via artist, song, album, genre, composer, etc. Music can be downloaded directly through the Amazon MP3 app if you wish.
Music playback sounded very good through the speaker, great through stereo headphones, and decent through stereo Bluetooth headphones.
There still isn't any sort of equalizer, but the EVO Shift 4G packs in an FM radio, which must be used with headphones. Reception was better than I expected. My favorite station, which is broadcast from about three miles from my house, sounded amazing. Stations broadcast from NYC (~30 miles away) also sounded rich and full.

Thankfully, the EVO Shift 4G has a video app on board (sometimes there isn't one!). The on-board video app handled all the mp4 and m4v files that I threw at it with no problem. Playback was smooth and free of any weirdness.
