Music and video are catered for in a special hub all of their own on the ZTE Tania. You can scroll around to see the library of onboard videos - including any you've downloaded and any you've captured locally - listen to music and podcasts and use the FM radio that's built into the smartphone.
The music and video hub, incidentally, also includes a link out to the Marketplace, which includes a range of tunes broken down into different genres.
To get your own music onto the ZTE Tania you need to connect to Zune and synchronise it across. It's not a terrible pain, but if you're the kind of person who prefers simple drag and drop via the Windows File Explorer, or microSD card-swapping, it may rankle.
It's great to have an FM radio on the phone, but for some bizarre reason it isn't possible to play radio through the handset's speaker. This is a Windows Phone standard feature, and one that really needs fixing.
One thing that really annoyes us with regard to the ZTE Tania's media handling is that it has a mere 4GB of internal storage and no microSD card support.
The latter is a fact of life for all Windows Phone handsets currently, but if you are a media fan you may not be too happy about it.
Let us add to your woes by saying that our review handset reported just 2.89GB of total available storage.
