    Wondering if anyone can help. The video that I take with my Note 2 is extremely poor quality. It looks blocky and choppy. I have changed the settings to record in fine and superfine but it doesn't change the quality much.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    This is more of a guess as I haven't done too many videos, but where are you saving the video to - the onboard memory or a microsd card?

    Are you using the default video player?
    What resolution are you set to? (not the same thing as fine/superfine).
    How big are these videos?
    Is anti-shake on?

    Mine takes excellent video in good light--no way is it all blocky or choppy. Does it look any better when played back on a PC? are you using Recording Mode "Normal"? Anti-Shake "ON"? don't pan too quickly or you'll get the "jello" effect which can ruin the best of videos.

    LOL! My wife has had her Bionic for a year. It took her 10 months to remember to clean off the lens before taking a picture. Whenever I was around when she would get ready to use the camera, I'd remind her to clean the lens. She finally got the idea. LOL!

    I am using the onboard video player and I have recorded in both regular and fine and it still looks the same.

    I am saving to my sd card.

    I wish I could upload video. I took video of my kids opening xmas presents and it looks terrible. I didnt pan at all.

    Yes the lens is clean also :)

    You can upload the video to photobucket, youtube, vimeo, etc. There are a lot of photo/video sharing websites that can host the video and corresponding apps that'll allow you to upload.

    Maybe someone here knows if a very slow SD card can impact camera performance on a cell phone.

    Barring an issue with the card, the next thing I'd suggest is a factory reset. If it still looks dreadful, I'd ask for an exchange. (I'm no expert on this issue--never heard of it before--I'm just saying what I would do in those circumstances). good luck!!
