    I downloaded it and it only shows 720 ? On the 4.7 iPhone
    But I thought if it can record 4K couldn't we view 4K YouTube?

    What would be the point on a non-1080p phone?

    Your phone can't display anything higher than the native resolution. If anything the compression that YouTube uses causes the problems your experiencing.
