Music & Audio Controls

Much like other Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) devices, the music application, not to be confused with Google's Music app, is a very basic audio playback interface with a scrub bar, playlist options, play/pause button, and track forward/backward icons. Though you shouldn't have any issues listening to music, don't expect to have the same level of fine control as you would with a capacitive touch screen.

Music & Audio Management

Audio files are managed by the music application in list format. There's not a whole lot else to say about it except for that you have to transfer yoru files either by email or USB cable, which can be a pain if you do not drag and drop your files to the appropriate folders.

Music & Audio Battery Life

The Coby Kyros MID8120 is able to play back music for 24 consecutive hours without needing a recharge. This is probably due to the fact that the screen automatically shuts off when it's been idle for a while.
