Review: LG DoublePlay for T-Mobile
Because the DoublePlay uses the exact same user interface design and offers the same set of applications and services as the recently reviewed LG myTouch Q, some portions of the following text are duplicated from that review.
The DoublePlay runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with only the slightest of customizations from LG. It offers seven home screens for personalization, and the dock at the bottom of the screen has five items in it (phone, messaging, browser, email, and main menu), rather than four.
The main menu is laid out in a vertical grid, which can be separated into different views, such as the most recent apps viewed, downloaded apps, all, etc. The main menu can also be viewed in page and list form. There's also a search bar in the main menu in case you just want to search for the app rather than scroll for it.

The notification shade hasn't been customized in any truly unique way, but it does provide controls for the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS radios, as well as Autosync and the sound.
