Review: Huawei Prism for T-Mobile
The stock Android music application is preloaded as a music option. It doesn't bring anything new to the table, unfortunately. You can also make use of the Google Play app for purchasing music and Google Music app for playback, if you care to download those apps on your own. Either way, music playback sounds good whether it's from local storage or streamed across the internet.
The Prism offers an FM radio, which I found worked well, but internet radio services such as Slacker or Pandora will need to be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

The stock Android video application is on board for video playback. It will play side-loaded content as well as any video captured on the device itself. It offers bare-bones functionality (play, pause, stop, etc.). The YouTube app is the same old one that's on every other Android phone.
T-Mobile TV is also on board. It offers streamed video content in bite-size portions. I didn't have much success with it. Video playback is choppy at best, and the quality is just plain awful.
