Looking to blast some tunes? Check out these 8 Android music players

Indeed, many of us want players that go beyond the basics (you know, playing back songs), so features are an important factor when choosing one. And while that's true, some of us still prefer a simple-to-use, no-nonsense players, like Google's Play Music app (which now comes pre-loaded on a number of devices). In the slideshow below, we've picked 8 different players that somewhat differ in their purpose -- some are services that allow you to browse, listen, and purchase music from a central server or locally (e.g. Google Play Music), while other have a ton of extras fitted into them and offer local playback (i.e. songs on your phone).
So, once again, are you looking to blast some tunes on your smartphone? The music player apps we've picked for your are as good a starting point as any. Take a look.
* Players arranged in no specific order.

PowerAmp Music is best in paid category and Google Play Music in free category. Overall PowerAmp is best.

While poweramp is arguably the best, I'm using Apollo lately. Its a great free alternative. :)

+1 for Apollo. When my OPO gets here in a few hours, Apollo will be loaded on it.

I used Apollo when I rooted my devices. Can't match PowerAmp, but definitely comes #2.

Apollo is meh! Rocket Player is the best free alternative with cool options and good preset equalizers and the Pro equalizers are top notch! And the Dev is very active and humble! In all, as long as the music players include their own media scanner, I'm cool with it, but this is so rare and often results in duplicated albums for some of my ripped music!! Apollo is currently frozen in my phone!

I tried Power Amp a few years ago and didn't like something about it, though I can't remember what. I then tried Player Pro and have been using it ever sense. Works and sounds great, but you have to get the DSP pack for the best sound. The equalizer is much better with the DSP pack.
