Review: HTC Droid Incredible 2
The HTC-skinned music application on the Incredible 2 does all the same things that the stock Android app does, it just looks a little nicer. 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, or sideloaded to the microSD card.
There still isn't any sort of equalizer, but the Incredible 2 packs in an FM radio, which must be used with headphones. There are also a ton of other music apps pre-installed, such as Slacker, and Verizon's V CAST Music, V CAST Ringtone, and V CAST Media stores.

The on-board video app handled all the video files that I threw at it with no problem. Playback was smooth. Movies look good on the large screen. The Incredible 2 also has the standard YouTube application and V CAST Video. Blockbuster is also on board for renting/purchasing movies.
