You wanted a video test from the LG Optimus G, you're getting a video test from the LG Optimus G. We're here in Seoul, South Korea -- home of LG, no less -- to give this guy a go. By default, the video camera shoots at 720p, but you can ratcheted it up to 1080p if you so desire.

As you can see, video quality is decent enough. And as you can hear, some wind noise got through, but the audio's still fairly coherent, insofar as the sound quality is concerned. (The same can't be said for this weary traveler, unfortunately.)

The video side of the camera app is plenty functional if not exactly stylish. The buttons are all where you'd expect, and they're nice and large. You've also got some real-time effects you can apply, including funky faces and funky backgrounds. Apparently it's a big thing with the kids.

That looked pretty good...

Fantastic Video quality for a cell phone. Couldn't even have imagined this 10 years ago.

Mediocre at best. There is nothing new here that any one of 20 current handsets wouldn't do better.

I just think it is cool the way journalists from different sites hang out and are cordial/friendly with one another. But then again, who doesn't wanna hang out with Phil?

Quality looks like crap to me. It doesn't seem to focus on anything everything looks a little blurry. The colors are washed out and it looks grainy. Stop adding megapixels and start adding quality to these cameras.
