    This phone is advertised with a 1080p HD camera.
    But when in the video mode and looking at the settings it only gives a choice for 720p.
    Is this normal or am I not understanding something?

    You should have the option for 1080p (I do). The setting for resolution is scrollable, so scroll to the very top and you should see 1080p or HD+.

    Yes, I tried that and I don't have the 1080p option.

    Where did you find the option? I have double-checked the "gear" menu, and 720 is the highest resolution option I have.

    Yes, that's the deceptive part.
    When you see the 720, just use your finger to scroll up (or down) and you will see it there.

    I've already tried that. I am able to scroll down and see lower resolution choices, but 720p is the highest option.

    Crappy SD card maybe? I've got an old 4gb micro from my blackberry curve in there... I can record 1080p and have it selectable on the menu. You're not the first person I've heard of having this issue.

    Hadn't considered that. Although, I have tried switching storage to internal then adjusting the resolution, but no dice.

    You may want to try again. Even though 720 may look like it is at the top of the menu try scrolling the list up and down again. I think it's very strange that your camera app doesn't have that setting. This is the stock camera app, right?

    I agree, it is very strange :) Yes, I am using the default camera app. I know I'm looking at the whole list because it give me that slight blue "shading" at the top and bottom; definitely no 1080p.
