Review: Motorola Photon Q for Sprint

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  10

The only music application preinstalled is Google Play Music. No FM radio, no Slacker, no Pandora, not even the simple media player are available. As for video, there's the Google Play Movies store and native YouTube apps, and that's the sum total of all the media services on the Photon. Of course, you can download anything you want from the Google Play Store.


In terms of performance, music that I played through the Google Play Music app sounded good, even when streamed over the cellular network. I wish the Google Play Music app had more controls for fine-tuning the sound, though.

The Google Play Movies app is a fine video player for sideloaded, captured, or purchased content. Movies looked really good on the ColorBoost display, and sounded good on my favorite pair of earbuds.


If you want to access Sprint-branded media apps, you'll have to download them yourself from the Sprint Zone. The Sprint Zone includes long-time Sprint staples, such as Sprint Live TV, Sprint Music Plus, NASCAR, and NBA Mobile. These apps are free to download, but of course music itself costs extra.
