Video shot with Samsung GALAXY Nexus appears on YouTube in 1080p glory

0. phoneArena 21 Oct 2011, 06:34 posted on

Those who count megapixels might feel that the Samsung GALAXY Nexus somehow was shortchanged as it comes with a 5MP camera, but the number of megapixels doesn't relate how good a camera really is and Google says that the camera on the GALAXY Nexus is one of the best on a cell phone...

This can't wait to see a hands on video on the phone itself.

Depends on the 5 MP and 8 MP cameras... there are some great 8 MP and some lousy 8 MP, ditto for 5 MP. This just goes to show you can't judge any piece of tech by numbers alone.

All of Samsung's high end android phones have had good cameras. From the SGS and no surprise with the Galaxy Nexus. I don't care enough about camera's to even worry about what kind of camera it has or the quality. ICS, 4.65 720p hd display is alone a reason to buy.

Not good, just excellent ! Even on fullscreen on my 22" desktop screen.

But I don't understand why he made the clip faster ?

Time lapse is a recording option for the galaxy nexus. That is awesome.

this is a huge factor for me too. but I may break down still. I love this phone I got my hands on a Dummy and it feels really really good.

But i have 16 gigs filled on my sd.. not sure i wanna wait the hour its going to take to transfer all that data

An older 5mp SLR still destroys ANY cell phone camera (even 8mp).

MP don't really matter unless your blowing something up. And even if so, you can have a lot of pixels that are of poor focus/processing.

this is very true. even non digital SLR will still kill any phones cam.
but that kinda goes without saying. I would like to see a photography phone come out or something. would be interesting.

Looks incredible. Very nice. Don't know why he speed it up, but i would like to see how smooth the video is and I can't because he speed it up.

720p and 1080p versions of this video keep crashing for some reason. Don't know if anybody else is experiencing this.

Was trying on a work computer earlier. Windows 7, Google Chrome, enough internet bandwidth. Must have been a problem with the plugin, because it is working fine on my home computer, which is also a Windows 7, Google Chrome setup.

It's not the megapixels that make the quality of a photo or video, it's the dimension of its lens or sensor plus the software that handles it
