    Welcome to the forums. If you mean media as in music, I like PowerAmp.

    You will really enjoy the MX Video Player. It is feature rich and plays most formats. That is..if video is what you are looking for.
    Second Poweramp for music.

    I like VLC for video, and also used it for tunes prior to purchasing a dedicated music app called Neutron. Here's the link for the Eval version.

    The best media players I think are BSPlayer and MX Player. For music, some good ones are PlayerPRO, and DoubleTwist.

    I just found the paper which lead me to using Neutron player. It's on a top-ten list from Tom's Hardware sister site "Toms Guide" here's the link for the paper "10 Best Android Music Players". I also saw Neutron on a similar top list at "Higheredtechdecisions". I think anyone shopping for an audio player can benefit from perusing these articles.

    I have to admit my choice was heavily influenced both by the eval version's fantastic performance and it's aesthetics. It may seem somewhat shallow, but Aesthetics is why I didn't go for a player supporting both video and audio. and chose Neutron, even though it's strictly audio. (I'm sticking to VLC for video, mostly because I play very little video using my phone)..

    I like VLC on my phone, but MX Player is better.

    I use Poweramp & MX player. But I just started listening to Pandora two nights ago and I like whatever they are doing, it sounds like radio if you know what I mean, louder/punchier and better sound.

    For me right now on a Tab 3 7.0 LTE as portable video screen, I use MX Player (HW Mode), hoping HW+ will be more stable soon since the SoC is same as Mega and S4 Mini. XBMC and VLC look like they will be good soon, for now I would not call either good enough to use exclusively.
