    One of the reasons that I got EVO is to use it for video chatting. I tried Qik and Fring (Skype) and the videos looks pixelated (pretty bad quality). Is it 1.3 megapixel front cam that is crappy or is it something else?

    Low res camera, compression, and other factors are the reasons.

    That sucks whats the point of video chat if the quality suck. Also Qik premium service supposed to have higher res. which is now offered free. If this is as good as it gets who will pay for this? Makes no sense.

    I thought the Qik app hasn't even been released yet? (Qik (qik) on Twitter) How were you able to test it? Also, did you try with wifi, 3G or 4G?

    Qik was out there this morning. It has video chat option. I tried video chat on 3G and wifi as I don't have 4G in my area.

    For me qik had a good picture but I did not like the fact you had to press a button to talk. Frings picture was not that great and it has a high pitch sound in the background. Would love to here others experiences.
