    Hi, all! Does anyone know why even a 10 second video is completely clear on my phone, but when sent via text to someone is completely blurry? I love this phone, but this is a real issue =(

    Your carrier has size limits for MMS messages so the phone automatically has to shrink the file size of the video (therefor decreasing quality) before it can send the message. Texts are simply a bad way to send files, especially videos.

    Videos sent via MMS will be blurry because there's a size limitation, so video will be compressed when it's sent. That leads to blurriness.

    You may want to look into different kinds of messaging apps. For example, if you send a video via Hangouts (as a Hangout, and not as an SMS message), I believe the video won't be compressed, because what you're doing is uploading the video to your Google+ account, then sharing the video with your friend via Hangouts.

    Is there any way to change that? For example, if someone sends me a video from their phone, I almost always see it clearly. It's really annoying - even a 3 second clip will be blurry -_-

    Hmm..but I wouldn't necessarily want to upload all my videos to Google prior to sending...

    It is annoying but carriers limit mms videos pretty hard. .

    No one else sees those videos except the person you're sharing them with.

    There are many other cloud upload services out there if you want to avoid Google for some reason. I know that you can set the dropbox app to automatically upload photos and videos as soon as you take them. Then it's just a simple matter of sharing the link with whoever you want.

    I have this same issue with my SGS6- I NEVER had this problem with I-phone. I hate it. It doesn't matter how small the video is.

    My videos from my note 4 have this whitish clouds around it when I post it to Facebook. It makes it look blurry. My last note didn't have this and had beautiful videos. If I upload my videos from my phone to I tunes and then post them on Facebook they are clear. Can anyone explain why?

    Thank you
