Review: HTC Thunderbolt
The HTC-skinned music application on the Thunderbolt does all the same things that the stock Android app does, but the refreshed appearance goes a long way towards making you feel like it's an entirely new app. 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.
While at Teterboro airport, I downloaded an entire MP3 album through the Amazon MP3 Store. It took 58 seconds for the 125MB to download. Not bad.
There is an equalizer that only works when headphones are plugged in. It allow you to adjust the sound more to your liking. Thunderbolt packs in an FM radio, which must be used with headphones. There are also a ton of other music apps pre-installed, such as Rhapsody, Slacker and TuneWiki. Oh, and we can't forget Verizon's V CAST Music store.

The on-board video app handled all the video files that I threw at it with no problem. Playback was smooth and free of any weirdness. Movies look good on the large screen, and it's fun to prop the Thunderbolt up on your desk and watch for a bit.
