  1. When using the VOLUME control for zooming, the microphone picks up a CLICKING sound from the toggle switch each time it is pressed which spoils the video.There should be a way to keep zoom bar on the screen to zoom silently.

    1. Hi Buddy,
      In addition to use Volume key to zoom in or zoom out, you can use another way to do it. Place your two fingers on the screen then spread them apart to zoom in, while to zoom out pinch your two fingers together.

      Or you can try to silent your phone by press and hold Power button then on the pop up menu select Silent mode, so there will no sound when you zoom the video using the Volume key.

      Hope it helps :)

  2. is there any way to increase the amount of time for the video?

    1. Hi Lynnette Corrales,
      Thanks for coming.
      If you set the recording mode to "Normal" then you should be able to record a longer video as long as your phone has free space enough to save the video. While, if you set the recording mode to "Limit for SMS" then you will only be able to record video for about 35 seconds or 295K.

  3. How do I save my videos? I have the storage and everything set up. It has how long the video is and what it's "going to" save to in the right corner of the screen. But, my phone will only save a few videos then make me wait for the other videos for a few days. I don't want to wait anymore. How do I fix this??

  4. everytime i record video there is no sound, it's muted- how do i adjust this or is it too late once the videos recorded?
