Review: Samsung Focus Flash for AT&T
The music app is called the Zune player, and it's so interactive and graphically rich that it's great to use. The player interface itself is easy to navigate and use, and the on-screen controls make interacting with your tunes easy. I like the other parts of the Zune app as well, which pull down info about your artists, and provides suggestions on other music services you might use. Speaking of which, AT&T Radio is the only other music app installed; you'll have to download others from the Marketplace.
Pretty much everything I said about the music experience applies to the video experience, as well, since they are part of the same Hub. Disappointingly, however, Samsung and AT&T did nothing to provide anything beyond the stock Mango video player tools. HTC, for example, added its own movie rental service and YouTube application to the Titan. With the Focus Flash, you're stuck with fewer options unless you go diving into the Marketplace.
