    Default MMS Video Message

    Okay...Verizon 3G is pretty consistent in all areas (usually .5-1MBPS Down/up)...

    This phone is 4G LTE (where I'm at, its almost always 20 mbps down-10mbps up).

    So why the hell, can I not send video messages? Or why do I need to add the option in before, and it looks like absolute crap?

    Come on...there's gotta be another way...even on my old iPhone I was able to send a good quality video message, even when on 3G.

    What's the deal here? Am I missing something?




    EDIT: I just realized this post sounded really negative....I absolutely love this phone, aside from this fact.

    Ok so in this case ill concede that iphone does it a bit better although even iphone compresses the file quality even though you may not realize.

    Your only options are to set the video to limit to mms from the camera app, make the video from the messenger, or upload it to YouTube or dropbox.

    Maybe Android users will get some relief when (and if) Google ever gets around to doing unified messaging. With my Verizon iPhone, I can send good quality videos to non-iPhone users over regular MMS text service. I can send REALLY large file size videos to other iOS/Mac users via iMessage. Apple doesn't get it quite right in a lot of other areas, but they are truly onto something with their unified messaging. Now I know I'll catch a lot of flack for talking about Apple on this Android forum, but still. I have both an iPhone 5 and a Note 2 and there are things that I love about both of them.

    I read someplace that if you are using whatsapp and the receiver are using it aswell then you can send high quality video through Messenger

    I can chime in on whatsapp part, I use it pretty often...

    Vids can be 12mb in size with whatsapp... And quality is not compromised

    Hello
    iPhone 5 can send Videos without editing them,
    i guess it has a builtin software to Auto compress videos before sending on WHATSAPP

    does Android have any such software Free/Paid on Google play store
    or Samsung has any such software too ?

    Thanks
