Since the first feature phones offered the ability to record videos, some users wanted the option to play video content on their devices while on the go. This was possible in the case of feature phones that offered an external memory card slot. Still, in most cases, the experience was a bit lackluster since you had to convert the movie to a particular format, and the screen was quite small.
The situation was changed with the introduction of smartphones, which ditched the aging physical keyboards in favor of an extended screen that was considerably better for watching videos and other types of content.
Streaming is the most popular method of watching content on a device, with the boon of being able to make a few taps and play the content almost instantly. However, some users cannot rely on it due to some factors which are beyond their control. For example, they may not have access to a good Wi-Fi connection.
