Review: LG G2x
The T-Mobile G2x uses the stock Android music player. It has some great features, like easy search options from the Now Playing screen to find more music in the Amazon MP3 Store or on YouTube. But it lacks advanced playback options, like the fine-tuned controls you'll find on an iPhone. The G2x also lacks music equalizer options.
The phone comes with 8GB of built-in memory, and it did not have a microSD card in the box. Music can be sideloaded via USB storage mode, placed directly on your own microSD card, or added with third-party software such as DoubleTwist. Music sounded good through my favorite headphones.

Of course the YouTube app is on board for all the free mind-numbing video you can possibly consume. The G2x also has T-Mobile TV, which is a streaming service that offers small segments of television content.
There is also a dedicated video player application on board. It easily finds all the local video content and wraps it up in a nice viewer.
