With a beautiful 1,920x1080-pixel screen, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is really a great media player for us to have movie enjoyment on the go. However, sometimes, you will encounter problems when playing AVI files on Galaxy Note 3. This is caused by AVI's complexity. In this article I will give you some hints to get rid of the issue.

In the end, go back to the main interface and click the "Convert" button to start converting AVI video files for playing on Galaxy Note 3 with the best AVI to Galaxy Note 3 Converter.
