Right now I just use the default player but the interface is weird so I'll probably look into the ones you mentionned. Thank you :)

I use the stock music player on my Samsung Galaxy Ace II and it's still the best one I've found: lightweight and can play all audio formats (even tried with non-standard formats like m4a, which many players don't support). Best thing about the player, tho, is the colors. I don't like the bright look of many new google apps, I prefer dark.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

1) Can it play 96KHz sampled ogg files ? Because most players I tried can play "regular" ogg files but only JetAudio and GoneMad were able to open 96KHz sampled ogg files among the list I posted.
2) GoneMad's interface is mostly dark.

Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

I don't know, I never tried to play them, mainly because I dont have any music in that format :P But I'll look into GoneMad, it sounds nice (pun not intended)

The only problem is that it is not free :P
You have a 14 days trial but then you need an unlocker.

What you can do otherwise is install Appsales, put GoneMad on your watchlist and get it while it's on sale (I was lucky, I got it on sale without even using Appsales yet o.o).

I tried many players as well and I can recommend rocket and gonemad (I use the latter). All the other ones are too bloated for me or don't have enough features to be called a music player.

I use VLC because it can play m4a files (the preinstalled player couldn't) and because it's free. But you can't save playlists and it takes two seconds to load every time you go back to the menu, so the other players suggested here are probably better :P

The only gripe I have about the Nexus 5 so far is pocket-texting/msging/calling attempts. I didn't have this happen with my two previous devices. Now I had to password-protect my phone so that when I walk at work or elsewhere it won't send tweets/texts/phone calls by itself <_<

In many occasions some settings menus were open, so imagine if I accidentally enable data usage then open a very large Youtube vid O.O

You should get an htc freestyle like me. It's so awesome: apps only cost $5-$10 on average, music glitches and plays out the speakers instead of headphones whenever a text is received, and you don't have to worry about wifi being slow because it doesn't have wifi! And as an special feature, it shuts off whenever dropped or even set down.

I bought a Moto G LTE (4G), for 229 euro. It is simple a sublime mobile phone, the only thing lacking it the camera which is 5MP. But beside that it is truly a very good phone. The display is super, battery life is very good and speed is great (you get what expect from a quad core).

I recommend this phone to anyone, it definitely competes with phones that easily cost 200 euro more.

HTC phones seems quite problematic when it comes to problems or failure rates. Juju had two HTC charger plugs break on him in a row and he never had issues with other phones he got.
