    Which music player do you use on your 2XL?

    I have the 128 g 2XL since early December. I came from a Note 3. I am still learning how to work this phone. I have a large CD collection that I used on the Note 3 via an SD card, and used the native Samsung music player app. On the 2XL all the music transfered over to Google Play Music but only about 5 CD show on the menu.

    I know the music transfered because the files show up when I plug the 2XL to a computer.

    I am assuming that another music app would work better.

    Shuttle+ was the one I stuck with on my past phone. It has a nice, clean material design interface. I tried PowerAmp, Rocket and N7.

    PowerAmp Pro. I was using Neutron for a while, but had lots of distortion over BT. PowerAmp has it all, sounds great, manages my library perfectly. Nothing to dislike. It works, and works well.

    Agreed....and it kicks up the volume pretty good if you like tweaking the settings

    That article is a joke. They didn't mention any apps worth considering. I don't think the author actually investigated ANY music app.

    Okay, you piqued my curiosity with this one, so I downloaded and installed.

    I like the material design; Shuttle is far and away prettier than my go-to player, PowerAmp.

    But, one thing I know I would miss with Shuttle is PowerAmp's "Queue" function. Think of it as a one-time playlist of sorts. When I hit the gym in the morning, for example, I pick a couple of albums and enqueue them, turn shuffle on, and that becomes my "playlist of the day." The next day, I just "Clear queue" and start over with a new selection.

    And, honestly, as far as Shuttle being prettier goes, well, once I start my music up, the player drops into the background anyway and my workout tracker (Endomondo) is what I am looking at for the next 75 minutes.

    I agree, a queue list is a great feature! I know I use the Queue a lot in Google Play Music. I might have to go back and check that out.

    More than being, pretty, I like the Shuttle interface for ease of use as well.

    It has been a while, so I don't remember what made me chose Shuttle over PowerAmp. I think there were some things about the now playing screen I preferred.

    Both are great options though.

    Currently using Poweramp. Nothing can compare. I have been getting standby drain but easily fixed by a force stop of the app. Just a heads up.

    I always used Phonograph as it looked fairly stock back in the Marshmallow days. Not sure if it's still updated though as I don't keep music on my phone any more.

    Google Play Music. Why not, since you can upload 50,000 of your own songs to it and then pin any you like for offline playback. Plus not have to manage local files on multiple devices, trying to keep the same songs on each one. One major weak point is that while it can also play local files if you need it to, it can only play one file at a time (you can't select multiple local files to create a playlist) and it only works if you keep the player in focus and is extremely basic for that use. So it admittedly is a poor choice if you are a heavy user of local files.

    If you own a lot of music, there is nothing better than Subsonic. It requires some setup, but once you have it working you can access all your music from anywhere.
