The M735 has a basic music player on board. There are no music stores or access to music apps on the device, so you'll have to sideload music onto a microSD card first. Be careful, however. You have to put music in a special folder (My_Music), otherwise the M735's music player can't see it on the microSD card.

Once you've loaded music onto a card, inserted it, and refreshed the library, you'll have access to all your songs on the M735. In what has to be the most frustrating thing I've ever encountered in a mobile music player, you can't play any of your songs unless you "check" them first. You have to go through and place a check mark next to each and every song if you want to have access to it in the media player. Unreal and absolutely ridiculous. What if my library is 1000+ songs?

The player itself is on par with other feature phones. It can shuffle or repeat music, it can skip forward and back, it offers several pre-set EQs, and offers several different skins. Even though my music has properly tagged album art, it never showed up. There is also a music player widget on the home screen that can be used to control the current play list. All it does is play/pause and skip forward/back a track.

Music sounds pretty good through the the speaker and good through headphones. Its power is limited, though, and I couldn't get my earbuds loud enough for my tastes.
