As a matter of fact, the newset version of Handbrake 0.10.5 has offered two Android preset profile options: "Android" and "Android Tablet". However, those two profile options seems a little out of date since there are so many Android phones and tablets, they all have different specification and screen display size, the two profile options offered by Handbrake can't fit with all devices. In that condition, you will suffer many playback issues such as incorrect aspect ratio, resolution, bit rate, frame rate, etc when using Handbrake to generate Android profile settings.
