We are extremely impressed by MX Video Player Pro. Its hardware decoder is inferior to DicePlayer's with most video files tested only offered smooth playback using the software decoder. Further, many 720p videos we tested did not offer particularly smooth playback with MX Video Player Pro. However, out of the six commercial video apps we tested in this feature, MX Video Player Pro has the best support for video formats. Further, it is the only app here that has a deinterlace option which is an essential feature for watching recorded broadcast tv, as it avoids the nasty interlacing artifacts.

It is also worth noting that MV Video Player replaces the Honeycomb task bar with five small dots. This is shown in the above screenshot.

The fully adjustable zoom means that whatever aspect ratio of the video, you can completely fill the screen removing unwanted black bars.
