    Im in the market for an android phone in which i would like to convert my vast blu ray library to play on them. In your opinion, which would be better?

    Im looking at basically the S3, HTC one X, or maybe even stock Google nexus phone( no contract and updates seem nice). Even toying of waiting to see what he Note 2 may look like but really can wait months for it to hit the states.

    Thank for any info

    If you convert them to a basic format like avi or mp4, the phone model really wont matter much. The difference would lie in the screen technology, but then all of the models you mentioned uses AMOLED technology so there really won't be any difference apart from screen size IMO.

    All of those phones are powerful enough to play videos in any format in an app like MX Player. The Nexus is probably the weakest of the three and mine can handle 720p in software mode just fine (1080p is a little excessive and offers no advantage if the phone is only 720p anyway).

    If you convert the file to .avi, then it is supported by the supported by the Samsung Galaxy S3.

    Sheesh people, its a smart phone for a reason, if it can't play an hd movie then I sure hope your upgrade is coming up soon:D

    The HTC one X and the Sg3 are getting awesome reviews. If you can afford one then go for it, you'll love it. But any phone with at least a single core 1ghz processor, 1gb Ram and a decent screen should fit your specifications. Check reviews for battery life, you wouldn't want your phone dieing midway through a movie right?:rolleyes:

    I do like to think that HTC sense may be more adapted for videos and music, but I think thats more opinion than anything. Plenty of people would certainly disagree.

    Plenty of people will certainly disagree, especially when Samsung default video player handles more codecs and formats for hardware decoding than the HTC player. LOL.

    But then player support isn't really an issue.

    I would honestly recommend the SGS3. It's the only one of the bunch with expandable storage.
