Default Video recording p***ing me off

First of all, the preposterous noise cancellation/popping sound issue makes me insane. Same **** on the N5. Can I ever just once get a phone that can have perfect sound in videos? Please?

Anyway, now: what's with the pure dark picture on low light recordings? Why is it that, if I go to take a photo in a low light situation, I can still see SOMETHING onscreen, but when you switch to video, total darkness. (and the resulting video is total darkness)

Why the diff between photo and video?
