On a forum I'm a member off, a discussion started about many phones today that may struggle with this type of video content including importantly, the Z2.

Now I watch a fair bit of anime on my phone and a lot of it is encoded in this profile but I often watch 720p encodes and these are prefect on the Z2 as for 1080p videos I've only watched a couple but these were very smooth as well but I just want to see what other people's results maybe.

Just to be clear I am referring to 10bit encodes, if they were 8bit then it would be hardware decoded. The profile for 10bit encodes is also known as Hi10P.

I have changed the title of the thread as it seems you are trying to start a discussion. If you did mean to ask a question then Q&A is the correct place for it.

For 720p it's very smooth, no problem at all.
For 1080p it may lag/stutter a bit in some scenes (usually the fast action scenes). But it's fairly smooth most of the time and very watchable.

I've tried a 720p h.265 video too, and it's smooth ^^;

I'm using MX Player.

I would have to check which one are 10-bit. But so far no problems using BS player and a Synology NAS. Will check when I get home.
