    As most of you probably already know, the note 3 doesn't allow you to text or email videos taken with the standard resolution setting with the camera app. Other than using Dropbox or YouTube, does anyone have any other suggestions for this issue? I actually send quite a few videos, and I need the recipient to be able to download them. And I would like to use the full resolution setting.

    Emails usually have a 5~10 MB file limit (Google is on the upper end). Using text, the limit is probably smaller.

    Host and provide link to download. No need to ever email or text them. I use Skydrive, Box, Google Drive, etc.

    I'm not sure you will find anything better than YouTube. Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, Copy, etc. all go towards your storage space. With YouTube, you get an unlimited (right?) number of videos to upload, you can upload in original resolution, and you can set the video to unlisted so that only people with the link can watch it.

    I'm pretty sure...once you play the movie I think you can press/hold and save it to photos. Vimeo is another site I use for full size HD Vids.

    Saving photos is easy. iOS makes it difficult to save videos someone has sent you unless it's through iMessage.

    You can stream the video but can't save it unless jail broken.

    Dropbox and Google drive are probably the best options in my opinion. instant upload and the other user can download and view. If the other person owns a Samsung smartphone that has S Beam, thats another option, but Dropbox and Google drive are your best options.

    S-Beam allows huge files. your sending the files via bluetooth and wi-fi, so there are no restrictions from Cellular data
