Today when we have up to 25-megapixel cameras on our phones, we have got the freedom to travel without the actual cameras that are expensive and not so easy to carry along. We all love to take selfies and shoot videos on our phones but sometimes the videos seem to be too long and require editing. And with this, comes the need for a good video editor for Android.

All the apps we mentioned above can be downloaded for free on play store, however, there will be a watermark of the app across your video and if you want them not to show, there is a paid version available too. Though we highly recommend that if you are filming the video on your phone, do try to transfer the file to your device and then edit it there. But in case that is not possible, then these are the apps we recommend you to try.
