    The phone as all othersshoots great videos, however why and how do I improve the quality of videos after they are sent? Either email, text message, or Dropbox whatever, they look awful. I gotta be missing Something, video can't go from perfect to awful quality. Thanks and happy new year to all.

    The videos are compressed automatically when sending through text and email to reduce the file size. If you want the full quality, you need to move them to your PC. Happy New Year Nur262 :)

    Nur2652, I found this:

    iMovie works great also for uploading 1080p video directly from your iPhone to YouTube. Here is a video I made showing how to do it. I chose iMovie over filmic because you can choose videos out of your camera roll and you don't have to record them directly from the iMovie app like you have to do with filmic.

    Texting will compress it. It will greatly compress it if it's long (more than a minute). The longer the video, the crappier it will look.

    DropBox compresses them, but it's not as bad and you can change the upload video quality in the app's settings. The best way to share videos is to upload them to DropBox (or Google Drive) with a high quality setting and send the link.
