When we discuss smartphone cameras, about 90% of these discussions revolve round photo-taking capabilities, not video. There are a couple of causes for that: photographs are simpler to take than video, they’re simpler to share, and never each scenario requires a video to be captured. Also, corporations spend most of their assets bettering pictures options of their smartphones versus including extra video options.

I requested you final week how usually you document video in your smartphone. Out of over 22,000 complete votes throughout the web site, Twitter, and YouTube, one factor is excruciatingly clear: recording video isn’t a precedence with smartphone customers.

How usually do you document video in your smartphone?


A complete of 70.2% of Android Authority readers stated they “very hardly ever or by no means” document video on their smartphones. This is the place I fall, too. I actually can’t let you know the final time I recorded video on a smartphone outdoors of a evaluation.

At a really distant second, 23.55% of voters stated they hardly ever document video, possibly one to 2 instances every week. Finally, simply 6.25% of voters stated they document video usually, practically each day.

Feel free to check out how totally different readers voted on Twitter vs YouTube, however the outcomes actually aren’t that totally different from each other. Just about each ballot confirmed roughly 70% of all voters hardly ever document video.

Here’s what you needed to say

Here are a few of the greatest feedback from final week’s ballot explaining why they voted the way in which that they did:

  • Ivelin Ognyanov: It’s fairly easy actually and right down to: do you have got youngsters? 🙂
  • Yakubu Tukur: Most folks that I do know insisted on greatest digicam telephones not due to taking movies however due to the image high quality.
  • Drake Dodson: It takes a reasonably big day for me to document video (apart from possibly a Snapchat) … Like possibly as soon as each three or four months.

  • roaduardo: Pets and children? I feel that’s primarily why many document movies on their telephones? Not many people are vloggers. I’d say younger youngsters and youths are actually heavy with video recording? Adults with jobs? We’re busy? For me I feel the children and pet factor extends to snapping nonetheless photographs too. That’s about it. Vacations are one other factor however how usually can most of us take holidays?

I take advantage of the video options…so much.
