As a portable media player, what can we say about the 2nd gen Galaxy Note? The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 excels in every aspect. The love-it-or-hate-it 5.5 inch large screen is perfect for viewing media, as one would expect. Watching videos on Galaxy Note 2 is a pleasure. That HD display looks stunning, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 isn't so heavy that you'll need to lie down after holding it for half an hour. And there's even an outdoor setting to make it easier to see in bright sunlight, though it cranks the display up, so don't expect your battery to thank you. You also get the Pop-up Play function that we saw on the S3, which means you can have your video play on top of whatever app you're using.
On top of that, it’s also possible to stream the audio to a Bluetooth headset too, so you can enjoy movies completely wirelessly. You can get videos on the Galaxy Note 2 in one of two ways - you can sync from your computer or buy/rent films from Google Play. Google Play is getting better and better every day. In terms of what it offers, the main blockbusters are there, but it doesn't have the back catalogue of iTunes. Still, there's bound to be something there to keep you occupied until you can get to a computer to put your own stuff on.
Luckily, if you don't want to pay and have not got a single movie or MP3 to your name, you can still get in on the action with the Android DVD ripper that converts your DVD collections to Galaxy Note 2 supported MP4 and also extracts audio tracks and save them as MP3 songs. Or you may can sync local videos to Galaxy Note 2 for playback. The range of file types supported is impressive too: MP4, M4V, Xvid, DivX, AVI and 3GP - in fact, not once did we get the dreaded 'file type not supported' error message. The following guide shows you how to get protected DVD movies to Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
