Video comparison – Desire S vs Xperia arc

OK, so we’ve compared the camera quality between the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc and the HTC Desire S, but what about video ? We went out with both phones and cranked up the resolution to 720p HD. The Sony Ericsson Xperia arc records MP4 videos as default and the HTC Desire S stores 3GP out of the box, however we were happy to find that the Xperia arc is equipped with <i>continual focus</i>. This means that it’ll auto-focus <i>as you film</i> and produces the similar results to the HTC-built Windows Phone 7 devices.

Hmm.,. confusing. How come a brand-new HTC Android device (Desire S) <i>doesn’t</i> do continual focus the HTC Windows Phone 7 devices <i>do</i> ?


Anyhow, here’s a quick comparison video. Firstly, the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc..

..and now the same again, but on a Desire S…

    I’m kind of disapointed with the video quality of the Desire S compare to the Arc (the image quality is clearer on the Desire S but the the smoothness as well as the sound quality belong to Xperia Arc), however we should not forget the the Arc has 8mp while Desire S hax only 5 mp
    I was hoping HTC would upgrade the camera from the Desire. Anyway…

    Thanks for the review!
