With decent video quality should come decent sound quality. No? The year is 2010 and even today our half a grand phones cannot record good video or sound. Really whats your problem here HTC? I know the Nexus is capable of good sound quality cause if the iPhone and Omnia HD can record good sound with their basic phone mic. Why cant you? The Omnia HD was hyped up to be a an awesome phone/Camera featuring the first ever HD video camera on a phone. The Omnia definitely succeeded in image quality but the sound that the phone recorded was horrendous, just like the Nexus One's is. Many people noticed this and complained to Samsung and later they created an update that bumped up the audio bit rate. So I say lets complain.
