    Default video text messages

    Hello

    I'm coming from a iPhone 5 where if I sent a video via text message the quality I captured the video in would be the same to the recipient. I tried using handscent & the stock messaging applications but both are sending low quality videos out. This same thing happens when I receive videos too. I love the one so far the only big thing that doesn't work right for me

    I've heard many "reasons" for this but very few solutions. The most popular work-around seems to be uploading it to G+, YouTube or another cloud service and then texting the link. I believe it is a file size limit, so you get full resolution up to xMB and then it starts condensing it to stay at that limit. Very annoying, I agree.

    Is that on all android phones? I went back to ios after I tried the galaxy nexus on Verizon & had many problems. I'm impressed with how much android has improved but this is highly annoying
