One of the main new feature in iPhone 3GS is VGA video recording. It is crazy to think that Apple is capable of generating so much excitement with a feature that was available 2 years ago in its competitor’s smartphones. So far video recording in iPhone 3GS has received nothing but overwhelming positive reviews. If you follow TechCrunch and its sibling CrunchGear and MobileCrunch blogs, there are no less than six posts touting the video feature of iPhone 3GS (links at end of this post).

Tech product and gadget should always be technological advanced. Not so according to Apple. If Apple were to follow the tech trend, we would get a 8MP camera with 720 HD video recording in iPhone 3GS. If iPhone 3GS has 720 HD video recording, battery life will certainly be impacted. There will be a need for more storage space. iPhone will need higher graphics capability for HD video editing. More bandwidth is required for video upload to YouTube.


Instead, designers at Apple strives for balance between features and ease of use. Ease of use in terms of giving iPhone users the best experience and camera quality.

VGA recording has been available in Nokia and Sony Ericsson smartphones before Apple even released the first iPhone. Their latest smartphones commonly have 8M pixels or more camera and 720HD video recording. But it is iPhone 3GS that starts the ball rolling to making video an ubiquitous format for sharing on the web. All thanks to how easy it is for one to edit video and upload to the net all within iPhone 3GS. Brilliant video quality and the video recording software in iPhone 3GS are what sets it apart from the competitors.

Smartphones are not the only market iPhone 3GS will win over. Camcorder manufacturer should be concerned too as iPhone 3GS is now a viable replacement for VGA camcorder.
