    what resolution are you converting the videos to? what codec are you using? what source are the videos from?

    Well you have not mention some of the things. You have not mention which media player you are currently. I think you don't convert them into full screen. It is just your resolution problem. Set your phone resolution proper and try it again.

    Here are the properties of one of the videos

    VIDEO:
    FRAME WIDTH: 320
    FRAME HEIGHT: 262
    DATA RATE: 193kbps
    TOTAL BITRATE: 321kbps
    FRAME RATE: 30 frames/second

    AUDIO:
    BIT RATE: 128kbps
    CHANNELS: 2(stereo)

    I think they were conveted with "Any Video Converter"

    thats your problem. the resolution of the videos is way smaller than the resolution of the phone. if you are converting these videos yourself, convert them to a larger size, specifically the size of your phone's resolution. if these are the only videos you have, upsizing them will not give you better quality, and will be larger file size, but will fit the phones screen.

    on second thought, i'm not familiar with that device, but isn't there a zoom or full screen option on the phone's video player?
