Hi Martin,

I have a Samsung S7 that I bought used from my carrier for $50.  I'm
using the Smart Audio Book Player since that's mostly what I listen to. 
The same programmer also publishes Smart Music Player.  VLC media player
is also good.

The Smart player doesn't have near the features of RB but it has the
essentials - album/file oriented, good bookmarking system. 
Auto-resume.  If one turns this feature on in config, it'll pick up
where it left off when something is plugged into the headphone jack.  It
has the option to go back and replay a specified number of seconds if
the phone is turned off.  The number of seconds can be specified as a
constant or a max.  When set to max, the replay interval increases the
longer the phone is off.

The S7/Smart player combo sounds very good. The ear speakers are by
Etymotic (about $300).  I bought them about 30 years ago and today
they're as good as new.  I'm not sure they're still in business since my
email bounced but the site is up and running fine.  The only thing I've
tried which sounded better was my set of Klipsch Horns which were
destroyed in a fire.
