HD handset video editing on a budget

Of course, that’s if you insist on doing all your editing on your phone. You can always transfer the 3GP 720 HD video clips to your computer and use a fully spec’d editor if you want the professional touch. But for quick videos on the go, the Samsung Wave II does a pretty good job overall. However, if performing in-camera edits for sharing, the video compression is rather unsubtle. Check out the noticeboard text and dog in the background of the still from video comparison samples and it should be extremely obvious.

It has DLNA capability as well, so you can connect your phone to your wireless network and play back via a compatible TV. I tried with HTC’s Media Link connected to an HD TV and it worked fine first time, though videos recorded on the Wave II didn’t remain HD when stretched out across the 47in screen. Battery life held up fairly well too, delivering a little over a day of steady use.

Social niceties for the cost conscious

Verdict

The Samsung Wave II updates the popular original with a bigger screen and improved video camera. If you have the original this is more of a tweak than an overhaul, though if the HD video means a lot to you it’s worth considering. For the rest of us, it’s a pretty good way to get some decent smartphone capability including social networking on a budget. ®
