    Hi, Honestly not that many, probably 1-2 a week at most. But when you really want your recipient to see a video quickly and easily and they can't
    it is a huge PITA and letdown. I might very possibly pay another $10 and get a SIM card for my iPhone and carry it in tandem with the Note just for sending videos... And if I do that I'd like to send out a HUGE thank you to Samsung-AT&T-Google for continuing onwards with their segregation and chopped up OS.
    This has nothing to do with Samsung and Google. This is CARRIERS.

    If an iPhone person sends me a video, what I get isn't good. Carriers compress MMS for everyone.

    Now you might have mainly iPhone users in your contact list, but in the market, Android has the Lion's Share of users. The number of iOS users compared to Android users is a huge gap and Apple doesn't have the big slice.

    Android is open and allowed to be modified. It's just how it is. Sadly there isn't anything offering the freedom of Android with the restrictions on certain things like Apple.

    If you have that many iPhone users in your contacts and you send a lot of video.. I would recommend just using the iPhone. That is the simplest fix for your situation.

    Depends on where Crash79 lives. iPhone/iOS has a larger market share than Android in the US. Now worldwide, there is no comparison, Android is unmatched. But if you live in the US and only deal with people in the US, it's not uncommon to have a lot of iPhone toting friends and family.

    **EDIT** I stand corrected. Apple is the top smartphone OEM in the US, but iOS is not the top smartphone platform. Still a significant number of folks in the US using iOS though.

    I'm in the US and my contacts are still very largely, Android.

    None of my contacts have iCraps. If anyone in my circle bought one, they'd be dead to me and I'd delete them. Hahahahahaha

    Well that shows that Android has the market share in the US also.

    Myself I have a couple of iPhone contacts, the rest are Android, Blackberry and non-smartphone.

    There is one iOS phone manufacturer and a couple of phones, there are numerous Android phone manufacturers, making numerous phones. Also corporate use isn't just iPhone anymore.

    So, my girlfriend said that the video I sent her using the simple sharing didn't quite work, but the link from the Google Photos app worked just fine.

    Weird, my tests with my other 3 phones at home worked just fine. It just tells the other person that you sent a file and it has a link, that's it, he/she clicks the link and it asks you for the last 4 digits of the recipients number, in other words, their last 4 digits, once you do that it will brings you the picture or whatever it is and an option to download it.

    What exactly was the error or problem with your GF?

    She said she couldn't play it. I tried clicking on the link and putting her last 4 digits in and it wouldn't let me play it either. But I could download it.

    So you send someone a link... they delete it rather than opening it, as they thought the link was dangerous...

    How is that not a trust issue?

    iMessage is one benefit to having an iPhone for sure but the other person has to have iPhone as well of course, all my friends and family dont use text, we all use a messaging service(Whatsapp or Telegram(my fav), then it doesn't matter which phone &/or service you have, they both do downgrade video slightly but not nearly as much as MMS, if all else fails use google photos sharing as someone earlier stated and see the image in original quality.

    BTW if google did come out with a iMessage like service still wouldn't solve the problem because then it would be android to android, and technically speaking they have this feature, it's called Hangouts, and its cross platform as well.

    That's a limitation with MMS, and there's nothing that any cell phone manufacturer can do about that, aside from *not* using MMS to send videos. There are many many options out there. Whatsapp can send videos. The hearing-impaired community seems to prefer Glide. Why continue using something that the standards just can't change?

    I'm sorry but this is a huge win for Apple. How can they come out with imessage and Samsung just sit back and not do anything. Google needs to develop something as well smh

    Posted via the Android Central App
    Actually Apple fails here too. If you check the files you'll see they degrade from the originals also, they just seem to look better playing back on the phone. So, its something to do with the compression algorithm used which should be simple enough for Samsung to do better as well. The Iphone vids still look like crap if you watch them on anything bigger and some I get from iPhone users look like crap on the phone but it tends to be longer videos, again pointing to compression.

    On a related not the real fix here is 5g LTE service which will support transferring higher definition video regardless of the manufacturer so the solution is coming. If you really bugged remind yourself how bad it was back in the early days of camera phones and you can see we've come really far really fast!

    I am just going to deal with the issue of not being able to send videos on the Note 5 as easily as the iPhone via iMessage. The Note 5 is SO MUCH NICER in every other way that I have come to accept that one shortcoming. I despise the iPhone so much that I just donated it yesterday. And mind you all.....I have 14 Macs in my office.

    148 to be precise. But no. No one I know has an iPhone. 64 for are landlines, 6 are windows mobile devices, 1 actually uses a blackberry and the rest are androids. (Majority of the androids are in fact samsung)


    P.S. some of the land lines do in fact have iphones, like some of my bosses, but I only call to them on their office landline.

    I know a lot of people don't like Facebook messenger but when my son was playing baseball and I had to work my wife would send me his whole turn at bat with what I thought was decent quality through the Facebook messenger app...

    There are several good options. And sometimes you may have to use several options. But there are ways.

    This is something I'll soon have to deal with since my wife and I often share video clips from iPhone to iPhone via iMessage and I'm about to switch from iPhone to Note 5. This iMessage problem is the only thing that I think will be a real problem (for me).

    After a while you will get used to it.
