Hi, I was in the Verizon store yesterday, thinking about swapping my galaxy s for either a droid x or d2g because of the GPS problem and lack of froyo. Anyway while I was comparing my phone to the other two phones, I realized my YouTube quality isn't even half that of the droid x or d2g. Mine is grainy, and very low quality, while the DX and D2G it looked like High Definition and was perfectly clear. Is this just my phone, or do all galaxy S phones currently have this terrible video quality. I though the galaxy s had the best video quality so was very shocked when I noticed this.
Thanks for your help

video quality vs youtube are two different things, if you go into your youtube player, there should be a button for high quality video when avalible on that certain video, the SF if im not mistaken takes HD video and pictures, as far as the display models go, they are more than likely set to HQ video just to hook you into it lol

Yes you do have the option for high quality in the menu button. You can also use a app like tubemate and download the videos in up to 1080 if it is available. I usually watch them in 720 on my fascinate.
I got a Fascinate 3 weeks ago, and the video quality actually was one of the main reasons I decided to get a Fasciate rather than a Droid X.
When I compared the 2, browsing was much faster on the Fascinate, either Wi-Fi or 3G. Calling up a Japanese newspaper site was a good 3 to 4 times faster. Then when I played the same HQ YouTube video, Droid X showed quite a bit of noise, like low-rez jpegs, where the picture on the Fascinate was much cleaner.
The colors, however, are quite off on the Fascinate, as have been noted many times.

This is normal since the higher quality video file is larger than standard, as a result you will notice a slower download rate, but most of the time it plays as expected (usually the initial download is slow)
The Samsung Fascinate is the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S line of phones. Much like it's brothers, it includes the same 5.0MP camera capable of taking some of the best quality 720p HD video at 30fps. Unlike the other Galaxy S phones ... Read More
