Yes, always backup all photos and videos from your mobile device. You can copy / move them to home PC or store them in cloud storage. Do remember to backup them because accident might happen which your mobile device is lost or stolen. All your precious memory in photos and videos will be gone as well. Therefore, always make a backup copy. Luckily, Google makes our life easier by giving us Google Photos application which has photo and video auto backup ability for free. Yup, you can choose unlimited cloud storage available at high quality or store up to 15GB original size for free. Personally, I recommend using unlimited cloud storage as it support up to 16 megapixels (MP) photo quality which is more than enough for most mobile devices out there. And the good news, Google Photos is available for both Android and iOS.
MX Player is one of my favourite video players on Android. However, there is another one that is better (or on par) with it. Yes, DicePlayer is the best video player for Google Nexus 7 (2013). It is the top video player for 1st gen N7. And easily get the crown again on new Nexus 7. Watching movie on 1920 x 1200 px Full HD IPS screen is wonderful. Therefore, you need the best video player to unleash its full potential. As usual, stock video player can’t play MKV, RM, WMV, RMVB and MOV video formats. 3rd party player is here to help.
Samsung Galaxy S4 has a good camera to capture photo and video. There is a simple way to improve its video quality – by increase video and audio bitrate. However, you need to know a little bit technical knowledge in order to edit these values. Luckily, there is a Galaxy S4 camera mod to help. It is developed for GT-I9500 for the moment. GT-I9505 version is coming soon (since both of them are not using the same image sensor. Yes, GT-I9500 has better one).
PPS TV is no longer the best free online video player to watch TV drama. Well, maybe it is still in China but not in other region because most of the best videos are not available here. Yup, you can’t watch Hong Kong TVB TV Series. And only certain US, Europe, China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan videos are available. Not a perfect one anymore. Luckily, there is a replacement for PPS TV now. 天天看 is the one. So far it is designed PC Windows only. Hopefully, Android and iOS versions will be available soon.
What is your top video player for Google Nexus 4? As usual, the default video player can’t play all the video file type. So I ran some tests on several video players like MoboPlayer, DicePlayer and MX Player. Finally, found out that DicePlayer is my first pick. Lot of video file types are supported like AVI, MOV, MKV, FLV, AVI, 3GP, 3G2, ASF, WMV, MP4, M4V, TS, MTP and M2TS. That’s almost all. And it is available free to download with no advertisement. So it is my best video player for Nexus 4’s 4.7″ WXGA IPS screen.
