I have noticed that the video call experience on Android yields pixelated grainy images regardless of device and network I use.
I have tried Hangouts, Skype and various other video call apps on: two different Samsung Note 3's, a Samsung Galaxy S4, a Nexus 7 2013 and a Nexus 4.
I have attempted using WiFi, HSPA+ and also using LTE. Regardless of the device, the app, AND the connection, the quality of the video was horrendous at best.
And then I tried using FaceTime, which produced high quality HD video. I was mind blown.
I fully know that the front facing cameras on each and every single device I have is high definition capable.
So tell me... why are we forced to suffer terrible quality video call while a simple iPod touch can stomp on us like toy soldiers?
