Samsung Galaxy S III 4.8″ HD Super AMOLED screen may not be as good as HTC One X 4.7″ HD Super LCD2 IPS screen. But Samsung Galaxy S3 is still a good portable video player although the HD Super AMOLED colour is not as crisp as Super LCD2 IPS. Samsung Galaxy S3 stock video player supports more codecs compare to HTC One X. It can play 1080p Full HD MP4, WMV, AVI and MKV video formats smoothly. So I just need 3rd party video player to play RMVB and MOV video formats.
Which is the top best video player for Google Nexus 7? Nexus 7 is nice to be a portable video player due to its nice 7″ 1280×800 HD IPS screen. However, video player built in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean does not support all the video format like MKV, RM, WMV, RMVB, MOV… So a 3rd party video player is a must installed to make Nexus 7 a nice portable video player. Personally, I prefer MoboPlayer, DicePlayer and MX Player. All of them are available to download for free. Only MX Player is ad supported (DicePlayer is adfree now). Which one is the best video player for Nexus 7? Let’s find out…
HTC One X has a nice big 4.7″ 720p HD Super LCD2 IPS display. But HTC One X stock video player does not support much video format. It can’t play video format such as RM, RMVB, MOV, MKV (play without audio)… As usual, my quest to find a better video player replacement started since I got HTC One X. However, all the 3rd party video player suffers 3 dots Menu soft button issue on HTC One X. So I can’t enjoy movie on full screen mode (still have that annoying 3 dots).
Amazon Kindle Fire is my current portable video player. Kindle Fire’s 1024×600 wide display is better to watch movie, music video than iPad 1024×768 display. No black bar on top and bottom of the screen. However, the default video player in Kindle Fire is not perfect to do the task. Therefore, I pick my favourite video player from Samsung Galaxy S II ~ MoboPlayer. MoboPlayer is working perfect on Kindle Fire. The 2 features that I like most ~ adjust volume and brightness with slide up and down.
Samsung Galaxy S II stock video player is a very powerful video player as it is hardware accelerated. However, it does not play all the video format. Samsung Galaxy S2 supports MPEG4, H.264, H.263, WMV, DivX, Xvid and VC-1 video format at 1080p Full HD. You don’t need 3rd party video player if all your videos are in those formats. But I do have other video formats that I want to play like RMVB, MOV, FLV, MKV… So I tested several free and paid video player from Android Market ~ MoboPlayer, QQPlayer, arcMedia, SeamanPlayer, Kascend Video, VPlayer, BSPlayer, RockPlayer, MX Video Player, Daroon Player, DICE Player and Mobo Video Player. Guess which one is the best video player for Samsung Galaxy S2 which uses ARMv7 + Neon architecture.
