WVGA (Incredible) vs 720p (Evo4G) -- sample comparison
Video quality is a bit subjective person-to-person, but I personally think the Incredible video looks nicer. Others may disagree
Here's a Kin 2 720P Sample Video:

I just watched the videos side by side and to me the EVO had much brighter colors just way more vivid but the Incredible seemed to look a bit clearer to me even if the colors weren't as vibrant. I didn't think there was that much a difference between the 720p and 480p to make a big difference.
Another thing was the shadows on the dude's face made it kinda hard to see on the EVO but you could make features out better with the Incredible.

I agree with bobby9 100%. I was thinking exactly the same things when I was watching the videos. I did notice with the EVO the sky was very clear and realistic looking. And yes the bushes did look better. So sure background scenery might look better and more vivid colors with the EVO, but with the incredible you were able to see his face more clear along with all of the other things around. The street sign and the car parked on the left. I was just trying to notice if anything was getting pixelated.

+Higher resolution (that's it)
-Blocky artifacts everywhere, compression probably due to a limitation of the hardware for video on a phone
-Horrible metering, I can't even see his face
-Lower frame rate
+Smoother/faster frame rate
+Hardly any artifacts
+Great metering, I can see his face!
-Not as sharp since the resolutions a little lower
Both are pretty bad on the audio, but listening side-by-side at the same spots I'd give the edge to the Incredible's mic.

i wonder did everyone change the setting in you tube? b/c i could change the incredible vid to 480p and the evo vid to 720p and the evo showed more detail in the background but not quite as much in the foreground. too bad the wind made it really annoying to listen to. its hard to say but for a phone i think you will do pretty well with either. does anyone know if you can choose the resolution/fps on hte evo from shooting 720p to something lower? or if you only have one choice?

This is the same video uploded from both phones. I dont know whitch one shot the vid. But it is the same video. So I not sure what test he is doing other than upload to youtube. Unless he had the phones stacked on top of each other. But the angles look pretty close to each other. The Evo looks to be zoomed in a little more than the Dinc.
I dont know......thoughts anyone???

I like the Incred better. The sky on the EVO is way to blue, very unrealistic looking. Although the EVO is higher rez which is good, the Incred just has a more realistic representation. Can't even see the dude's face on the EVO.
I'd be curious to see some other comparisons in different environments.

on the EVO, it looked like someone had fun with the saturation bar, and cranked it up! The contrast was also cranked way up too!
The reason why I think the incredible "metered" better was because he had less of the sky. The brightest point of the entire scene was the sky, and the sky was barely there on the incredible. Or, another thought might be that the incredible's sensor just has better dynamic range than the EVO's sensor. But then again, we're not really comparing it to actual P&S's and DSLR's.

Either way, unless you're a high end video buff, I can't see this as being a decisive factor in choosing one of the phones, with network considerations, with/without the front face camera, and so on. Both look pretty good.
All that said, I still have my S1 in use until my Inc gets here. Compared to either one of these, my current video recorder sucks......

I added a Kin 2 720P video, IMO this is the sort of video AND audio quality that I think most people were expecting when they heard "720P". Now with THIS video I think the Kin 2 720P video is truely amazing for a phone!!
Now if only HTC can start putting these cameras into their next gen of phones....

The EVO's colors are more vibrant, but I agree with what someone said earlier... it's got metering problems. Noah's face looks so dark with the shadows. Not sure what's going on there.
Based on the other videos, it looks like they are stacked one on top of the other. The myTouch 3G Slide is at the bottom, the EVO in the middle and the Incredible on top.
