Default Best Android phone for video

I like to take video at concerts and events. The problem is, I'm usually fairly close to the speakers being backstage sometimes and the LG Optimus V phone picks up horrendous audio, and the video isn't exactly anything to write home about...

I just wanted to see what people think is the best Android phone for videos, in your opinion. Any examples people have downloaded to sites like Youtube would be appreciated as well. My friend's iPhone 4 shoots really great video but I love the Android format and community.

You might have a look at reviews of dual-core Android phones - these can record 1080p video. Check the reviews and see what they say about video recording.

...and, of course, don't overlook the camera (and look beyond just the MP).

Hate to break it to you, but there's a reason sound guys charge $300+/day for recording: you really need contained, specific equipment to get good audio. I know you're not necessarily looking for "hollywood movie" sound quality, but there's no phone (and probably never will be) that'll pick up decent audio at a concert.
