Review: Nokia Lumia 710 for T-Mobile USA
The Zune application is the default music and video content player. As noted in our previous Windows Phone reviews, the Zune app is interactive and graphically rich. The player interface itself is easy to navigate and use, and the on-screen controls make interacting with your tunes and videos easy. One of my favorite features of the Zune app is its connection to the Zune Marketplace. You can choose to have it pull down info about your artists, and provides suggestions on other music services you might use. It's cool stuff for the music fan.
Slacker Radio is also preinstalled for those who prefer to stream their mobile music. If you're interested in music services beyond Zune and Slacker, you can find plenty in 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.
The 710 also ships with Netflix for renting/watching movies and the T-Mobile TV application. The T-Mobile TV app costs $9.99 after a free 30-day trial, and offers TV shows and other content. In stark contrast to the app's behavior on Android devices, T-Mobile TV absolutely flies on the 710 and works perfectly. The user interface has been overhauled a bit and it is easier to sort through and find content. TV content starts streaming fairly quickly, though the resolution is lower than what I'd like it to be.
