720p on the Samsung i8910 looks stunning, more detail,crisper, at times more natural looking colours. However, the sound is absolutely dreadful, resembling the tinny audio quality of 2004 handsets – this may still be fixed though.
The N97′s video also performs very well, some slight over saturation in parts – it also just doesn’t look right though after seeing 1280 x 720 first then 640×360. On the other hand, audio recording is fantastic and crisp – as it has been on nearly all Nseries devices.
It’s worth noting that both videos do appear better in the original format than after being uploaded to YouTube.
Nokia N97 – [download original 11.98MB]
Samsung i8910 [download original 43.42MB]
Both videos are more or less similar in length, but with the higher resolution i8910 eats up approx. 4 times more memory, so a 10 minute clip would be about 733 MB on the i8910, but 195 MB on the N97.
I guess if you transfer videos to your computer regularly that won’t be a problem. On the N97, that’s less of a need, since the video sizes are smaller BUT ALSO you have 32GB of memory to fill.
