The smartphone revolution has changed the way we consume media. Now, a tiny portable device can hold gigabytes of music, videos, books, and podcasts. Sometimes, the right apps can mean the difference between a viewing pleasure and a terrible, stuttering lag-fest. Here are a few of our favorite media players, ebook readers, and media management programs for the Android platform.

    Actually you all missed Dice Player which is > MX player and all the players mentioned in this article. At least in the subtitle area. Most DVDs use vobsub (subtitle is another video track) and Handbrake will convert to MKV with VOBSUB. I have tried all of the players mentioned (mobo, mVideo, vPlayer, MX, and Dice) and Dice was the only one to support this.

    You forgot to mention that Amazon MP3 doesn't work in most of Europe (only in Germany, France and the UK).
    Amazon cloud isn't allowed here and the app doesn't show up in google play either.

    mx handled 1080p mkv with multiple audio and subtitle tracks while Dice crapped out...

    +1

    Mx Player is a very smart and capable player. Most importantly it's smoothness is awesome. Never lags not atleast in my phone
