Most users stick to the app that comes pre-installed on their phone like Samsung’s Music app. You shouldn’t though. And actually, we recommend everyone tries something different. Google Play Music has iTunes transfers and cloud streaming. VLC is very robust and widely used for audio and video. Additionally, PowerAmp is the go-to music player for millions of users and is jam-packed with features.

You can even download Apple Music for Android if you switched from the iPhone and got a Galaxy Note 9. We know subscription music services are getting popular, but some still want to listen to their own library and record collection. If so, use one of these apps.

First up has to be PowerAmp, which is what I've been using as my default music player on Android for years. PowerAmp is a fan-favorite for a wide array of reasons, most notably all the features at our disposal. We could talk about all of the features this has for hours. We'll mention a few below too. All you need to know is that you can try it free for 15 days with the trial, and that will convince you. If you like it, spend the $3.99 for the full version.

PowerAmp has a unique yet similar interface, and enough features that anyone and everyone will find exactly what they want. From a big "now playing" image with artwork on your homescreen or lockscreen, widgets, theme and skin packs to change the look, to ID tagging options and more. It's not just visual, this app is loaded with features.

Poweramp has a 10-band graphic equalizer with lots of presets and customization. There's crossfade, gapless audio, lyric support and plugins, downloads missing album artwork and even offers animated artwork too. Not to mention scrobbling, library scanning, customizable lockscreen, replay gain, support for m3u, m3u8, pls, wpl and more. Or playlists from files and folders right on your device. Everything can be completely customized. 

Poweramp is basically one music player app that rules them all. The 4 widgets give us tons of controls on our home-screen, and if you don't like the overall look and feel try out any of the themes and skins available for download or on the Google Play Store. This plays nearly anything and everything, looks good, can be fine-tuned to the max and is only $3.99 at the end of the day. Until the new WinAmp arrives sometime in 2019, this is my go-to app.

    Jukebox Music Player. Been using for a couple weeks. Does exactly what I need. Has themes and gets lyrics from the web. I think it’s fairly new but it has a new update with new stuff in it every other day it seems.

    Power amp needs to be removed from the top. It just keeps crashing. Except for sound quality the app is not stable. Pulsar, Jet audio, Rocket player, Joymix are missing. After updates, players are sometimes worse off.

    Don’t install Poweramp if you’re running Android 8.1. some of the features will not work, and the developer is not fixing them until his new version is finished.

    I very much like PlayerPro music player. It’s been around for quite some time, has regular updates by the dev team, which enables it to keep up with the latest Android features: Chromecast, android AUTO, Oreo notificatoins etc. The other players clearly don’t have that many features and are quite out dated.

    Yeah! An article with the stuff in it! Cool. Can’t believe you didn’t list a sound processing music or singing app.
