Review: LG myTouch Q for T-Mobile
The LG myTouch Q ships with the barest version of the stock Android music player. It has zero features enabled save for providing a way to navigate through your library and play some songs.
The myTouch Q has the newest version of the Android Market, which has a music store built into it. You can purchase music directly from the market if you wish.

The myTouch Q has the stock Android video player, which handles both recorded and side-loaded content. It also has the stock YouTube application, which continues to be really good. You can also rent movies from the Android Market.
If you're a glutton for punishment and don't mind shelling out an extra $10 per month, you can use the T-Mobile Live TV app. This app streams video content to the myTouch Q, but the quality is really low — when it works at all. Navigating the guide is sheer torture thanks to the myTouch Q's sluggish performance. Once video begins to stream, it's mostly OK unless you hit a hiccup in the network.
As far as sharing media is concerned, the myTouch Q ships with software called "SmartShare." This uses the DLNA protocol to push music, pictures, and videos to other DLNA-certified devices, such as HDTVs.
