The folks of BGR took the brand new Droid X and iPhone 4 for a test drive, trying out their cameras, in order to find out which device handles 720p video capture better. Here’s a screenshot of how the files resulting from the video capture look like:
Believe it or not, the iPhone 4 wins the duel, mostly because of the FPS difference. Droid X records 720p video at 24fps, while the iPhone 4 is only able to record at 30 fps. The indoor and outdoor tests showed which camera is better and we have to mention that the Moto phone records in 3GP MPEG-4 format, while the iPhone 4 opts for the MOV H.264 format.
What’s neat is that the iPhone’s format makes the resulting video two times smaller, as far as file size is concerned. Droid X wins the competition in the color accuracy and audio recording segments.
