Movie app is capable of MKV's just fine too. MP4, AVI, MKV, all supported with video codec XviD or H264, and with audio codec MP3 or AAC (single-channel).

What isn't supported: MP4's, AVI's or MKV's with other video codecs (hardly ever used anymore) or with other audio codecs (like AC3 (Dolby Digital), DTS and other surround variants). Pretty much like all other phones.

I'm not trolling, this is a genuine question.

Why are so many people getting hung up about a 4GB file size? Every single DVD I've ripped is between 2 and 3GB. Pictures and MP3 files are a fraction of that. The only files I can imagine wanting that are more then 4GB are Blu Ray films, and on a 5" screen I defy anyone to tell the difference between SD and HD.

Am I missing something?

I can defy sd, hd and fhd AND uhd parapaul
As such there are mkv files just above the 4gb mark depending on your download choice. If that is an issue, you can always use WiFi file explorer :thumbup:
So no biggie.

I tried using my 64gb microSDXC with a UHS adapter and connect it on my PC(before I formatted it to fat32) and write speeds were 20+mb then after I formatted it to fat32 it barely even reach 5mb lol!
will the quality of full HD 1080p video recording quality suffer since the write speed is only 5mb? not sure what is the write speed of recording a full HD video...
