Samsung prides itself in the differentiation the AMOLED screen technology brings to its high-ends, and it has indeed achieved the unthinkable with the Galaxy S4 this time around – a five-inch panel with the amazing for OLED screen 441ppi pixel density. Not only that, but it debuts the first octo-core Exynos 5 Octa processor in the international version, as well as a temperature and depth sensor for the first time. With features like Floating Touch and hand gestures you can control the phone without even touching the display, while the S Health and S Translator integration add to the unique aura around the S4 as a truly human companion.

However, according to the Samsung Galaxy S4 supported video formats, it supports only videos in limited formats: MP4, H.264, H.263, MP3, WAV, eAAC+. For other HD files in XviD, DivX, M2TS, MTS, MXF, XAVC, WMV, AVI, MOV, VOB, MKV(DTS encoded), etc codec or formats, Samsung Galaxy S4 will not open and read directly. Some guys suggest installing a media player app for Samsung Galaxy S4, but it’s a pity like the popular video player MXplayer still can’t handle all of the media files. Here fast and easy solution is to convert MKV/WMV/VOB/AVI/FLV/F4V/MTS/M2TS to Samsung Galaxy S4 compatible format via a third-party software. We highly recommend UFUWare HD Video Converter, which can convert MKV/WMV/VOB/AVI/FLV/F4V/MTS/M2TS videos to other mobile devices like Sony Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, iPad Air 2, iPhone 6/6 Plus, Surface Pro 3, BlackBerry and many more for watching.
