If you thought the screen on the original Galaxy S was good, you haven't seen anything yet. The Samsung Galaxy S2 features the brand new and exclusive Super AMOLED Plus technology, at a resolution of 800x480. The screen has such a high contrast ratio and provides such vivid colors, it's the closest you can get to lifelike image reproduction on a small screen.
And the Samsung Galaxy S2 is also a good HD media player. But it has a limitation that the Android smartphone can't play a single file above 4GB. So it is probably worth re-coding those HD videos to 800x480 to save on memory card space.
The guide is to help you put and play 1080p/720p HD movies in .mkv format on Samsung Galaxy S2 by using a comprehensive Galaxy S2 Video Converter (Pavtube Video Converter or Pavtube Video Converter for Mac). It has the power to convert any MKV video to Galaxy S2 MP4 with high quality but smaller file size (compared with its original file size).
Here's the step-by-step guide:
Step 1: Run Pavtube Video Converter as the perfect MKV to Galaxy S2 Converter on your computer, and then add your .mkv video files into this program.
Step 2: Choose Samsung Galaxy S2 H.264 MP4 video format
Click on "Format -> Samsung -> Samsung Galaxy S II (I9100) (*.mp4) " to quickly get output format for Samsung Galaxy S2 with high quality.
In order to get the video quality you prefer, you could adjust bitrate, frame rate, codec, sample rate, channels, etc as you wish after clicking on "Settings".
To get the video file in a good balance between video quality and file size, just set bitrate as 1500 kbps, resolution as 800x480 and frame rate as 30 fps for Galaxy S2 video conversion.
Step 3: Start 1080p/720p MKV video to Galaxy S2 H.264 MP4 conversion by clicking on "Convert" on the main interface of the powerful MKV to Galaxy S2 MP4 Converter.
Step 4: Connect your Galaxy S2 to your computer. And then copy the converted video files onto your Galaxy S2 with ease.
