MP4 Players: What to Look For

Appearance & Storage Capacity
Your MP4 player's screen size is one feature that is essential for an optimal movie-watching experience. Of the products we reviewed, the average screen size is three inches, which is a good size for a hand-held video player. Since bigger screens will naturally provide more details and easier viewing, we gave MP4 players with bigger screens a higher ranking. However, we did include some video players with smaller screens for users who are especially concerned about mobility when running or traveling.

How much storage space you need on a media player MP4 depends on how many movies and songs you want to store on your device. Low-quality movies can take up 600MB to 800MB, whereas high-quality moves can use 2GB to 4GB of storage space. Most MP4 players store 4GB, 8GB or 16GB, but some of our top products store between 64GB and 120GB.
