Samsung Galaxy Note 2 serves as a decent media player. The 5.5-inch Android hybrid is capable of recording and playing 1080p full HD video. Loaded with Samsung Media Hub, you can view thousands of movies and TV shows. Use TouchWiz to personalize and customize your touchscreen and choose from over 450,000 apps and access your favorite content, movies and TV shows. It’s also easy to transfer movies to Galaxy Note II for watching on flight when you go traveling. The range of file types supported is impressive: MP4, M4V, Xvid, DivX, AVI and 3GP. However, flash videos are not in the supported format list, which means FLV and F4V videos you transferred to the Galaxy Note 2 will not play in the stock media player.

Flash has been somewhat abandoned on Android devices, and updating Flash Player on Android now requires a hack.
