    according to gsmarena the motorola currently shoots 720p but should be able to do 1080p with future no reason the current iphone 4 cant with some tweaks of the ios system.

    now will it happen with the next iphone5? who knows.

    Why?? Takes too much space (and Apple never adds shooting modes) and is necessary on such a tiny little camera.

    if there is any truth to the rumors of a "cheaper iphone 5", then i highly doubt it. im really nervous about where to iphone is headed tbh

    i don't think its necessary. the sensors that size won't get that good of a image quality, and a 2 minute movie will be like 150mb+, depending on what's going on in the movie. current configurations of 16 and 32gb won't cut it. it'll be better to get a dedicated video recorder.

    Hopefully apple will put a better sensor in the next iPhone, and bump it up to 1080p. That would be awesome. One thing I really like about my iPhone is the camera, and I would shell out more money on an upgrade for a better camera on the phone.
