A friend of mine came to visit today and coincidentlally has a HTC Desire too. We got talking about the phone of course and he complained that his recording in HD 720 p was always plagued by random hacking and freezes. Since i did not have the same problem on my desire when i recorded in 720p,we decided to try and compare phones and see what the problem could be and it may seem that we hit a possible reason. Firstly, my friend is an 'app whore' , he downloads and installs anything remotely attractive to him just for bragging rights even if he does not use it often. As a result of this, his phone had 27 mb memory left on its internal memory. Mine on the other hand had 68mb . We then uninstalled a barrage of apps and got his phone to 66 mb free internal memory and what do you know? It now records smoothly without a slightest problems. Could this be the problem? the low internal memory somehow affects the smoothness of recording in HD ? Or could it be just one of the apps we uninstalled that may have been interfering with the phones recording abilities. I just felt this theory was worth sharing with you guys.
