Galaxy Nexus front camera is capable of 720p video

I just checked this on my Rezound (2 MP front). It also records 720p video. As long as the front sensor supports it, there's no reason the phone couldn't handle it.

Quick question. Why do i need a 720p front when i have a 1080p rear?

For video chat of course. You can't see who you're chatting with if you use the rear camera

lol, you could always do the constant flipping the phone back n forth for talking and then listening..lolol. i did that once on my SGS1 (with no FFC) as a proof of concept for someone.. lol. :)

remember that discussion we were having about MPX and quality.... :) 720p from a 1.3mpx camera.

Yep! I was the one that brought it up on the RAZR article. Someone gave me a thumbs down just for asking :( Oh well.
And on the point of this article, I actually HAVE seen the "HD" FFC mentioned veryyyy sparsely on random parts of the internet. I think CNET's review mentions it. I only saw it while looking up more info on the RAZR as Moto seems to be advertising it while Samsung/Google is not (but some media outlets are...)

I\'d be shocked if it didn\'t have it. I got tired of waiting and sprung for the Rezound which has a 2 mp high definition camera which as the other poster said is great for chat, but also puts up amazing quality youtube videos.

this could be useful for business video conferences, but i fail to understand why would a phone use this much resolution for a video call for personal (phone to phone) use.
maybe for TV reports at war zone as well, this would be helpful instead of having those 1pixle satellite video phones (even thought i doubt they would have LTE in war zones to handle 720p video calls)

dont forget there is also an HSPA+ version as well... though the same thing still applies about the war zone probably.. lol
the answer to your question of why is... because we can. if we dont continue to push the tech forward it will always stay the way it is.. and who wants that?

You can choose your resolution on the Rezound and I assume it will be the same for the Nexus. Choices are always good. I\'m someone who always likes to watch in the highest definition available, but again the choice will be yours.
