    For everyone running the leaked updates....

    I'm seeing smoother results with H.264, it could be my eyes. What's everyone else seeing?

    Yup, its smoother with the lower res. I switch back to 480X800 because the choppiness was annoying.

    The 720 blows on the Android phones...although the Droid X didn't seem to bad. The audio quality is whats the worst though on the Dinc.. embarrassing.

    I do think the reason why the REAL update for Dinc isn't out because they are sorting out problems like these.

    Here's a video taken with my incredible with 720p. You have to click the arrow and switch it to 720p when you push play on the video, otherwise it is default 360p. I don't know why that is. Anyway, here's a sample of 720p on the Incredible:

    I havent really played around with it much, but I was wondering. People complain of choppyness with the 720p, but is that when played back on the phone? If the file were put on dvd format and on a disk and put in an upconvert dvd player and played on a hdtv with hdmi cables, then would 720p mpg4 be the best format to record in? or would it still play back choppy?

    when using either video setting, I see the same "tearing" effect on the screen when you move it fast - doesn't seem to be the best option for action recording I guess. 720p looks nice, but I definitely feel like this type of technology on a cell phone is still in it's infancy. I imagine when the dual core phones come out they'll be able to handle a high FPS HD video well.

    Still liking that my phone has borderline replaced nearly a 1000 dollars worth of electronics I used to use for various things. (laptop, gps, mp3 player, camera, flip camcorder (soon!), usb flash drive)

    good lord I love this phone.

    A lot of the 720p choppiness is due to holding the camera or moving it too quickly. It seems to be able to pick up just fine if the image is in front of the camera, without needing the camera to move.

    Thats been my experience.

    They have cell phone tripods on eBay in accessories packs. I got one and it's great for recording things that are going to stay mostly in frame.

    Regardless, HTC needs to up their cameras. If you use video recording on the iphone, moving your hands doesn't turn the video into a blurry mess. It's a cell phone for goodness sake, you can't just tell people you're holding it the wrong way.
