Review: LG DoublePlay for T-Mobile
The DoublePlay is as bad as the myTouch Q when it comes to bloatware. There are 59 apps installed out of the box. As usual, some of them can be removed and others cannot. There's a flotilla of T-Mobile branded applications, such as T-Mobile TV, T-Mobile Name ID, T-Mobile Mall, MyAccount, MobileLife Organizer, Highlight, Bonus Apps, and 411 & More. If you don't think 59 apps is enough, feel free to dive into the Android Market.
I didn't have any trouble with the DoublePlay's Bluetooth radio and functions. It paired easily with other devices. Sound quality of calls through a mono headset was quite poor, and sound quality of music through stereo Bluetooth headphones wasn't much better.
The DoublePlay offers the same lockscreen clock that most Android phones do. When initially woken from sleep, it shows the time in a larger, digital read out. The time can be gleaned with but a glance. Sadly, LG didn't do anything to customize the lock screen.

Google Maps and TeleNav Navigator are both installed on the DoublePlay. Google Maps is free and TeleNav costs $10 per month to use for the premium version. There's a "freemium" version that TeleNav offers now that has fewer features and is free. All three apps do a fine job at providing directions to and from destinations.
Hands-On: LG DoublePlay
