Google Nexus One Video Samples: Raw & Qik Compressed

Raw Nexus One 3gp video transcoded by YouTube

I received my Google Nexus One Android phone a few hours ago. One of the first things I did was take a couple of photos and then record video using Android’s video recorder as well as Qik’s client. The video sample above was transcoded (by YouTube) from the original 3gp file recorded on the Nexus One. The video sample below is a video recorded using the Qik for Android app.

My initial impression is that Nexus One’s still photo and video quality is noticeably better than the Motorolla Droid’s. More tests including head-to-head comparisons are needed. But, I was very impressed after watching the recorded video on a larger display.
