Among lossy I like:
1) fdk-aac
2) Oggenc2.87 using aoTuVb6.03 (Lancer Builds) + settings (RUS)
3) Latest LAME (3.100.alpha2 for now) + settings (RUS)
There's also Opus but it's not widely supported yet.

For this bitrate (64 kbps) I would recommend OGG (aoTuV) or HE AAC.
There is also, if not mentioned, Musepack (MPC), whose performance is unbeatable in 128 ~ 256 kbps.

I also observed that, among the three formats mentioned, Musepack is what occupies less CPU in Android devices reducing energy consumption.

Ah! An excellent multiformat player for Android is DeadBeef: https://sites.google.com/site/ddbandroid/

For extremely low CPU & RAM usage, good sound quality & simple interface I highly recommend andLess for Android. However, latest versions are good mostly for lossy (FLAC plays with crackles & noise).

I've also tested andless and it really is a good audio player. Besides the problems with Flac files it also crashes when playing Musepack stream version 8. This problem has been reported by many users in the developer's page but yet unsolved.
