1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

High Definition Video Recording Messy

    Hello, I am new to the forums, and I would like to introduce myself before I seemingly jump in and start asking questions. My name is James and I am from the area surrounding Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have purchased my Droid X2 towards the middle of June. It is a great phone, really, and is my first smartphone. My previous phones are ones I would rather not talk about, they are simple and cheap phones that you buy at a grocery store, I had Tracfone and Net10.

    Now, off to my concern...

    While recording high definition wide screen video, I notice many frame skips and occasionally the screen turns green, and the sound is split from the video and is ahead by a good amount of time, I estimate 7 seconds on one of my videos. Looking at other posts, some seem to believe that it is the MicroSD card you get when you buy the phone, which I am using. They recommend buying a higher class card. Before I go and look for one, can others confirm that buying a higher class (class 6 or 10) will help me? I recorded a video to the internal memory and it did not have any problems, so I myself am going to agree with the fact that it might be the rate at which the card saves. Also, can anyone recommend a cheap 16GB card, preferably class 10? I would welcome the extra storage anyway. Thanks to all of your help in advance!! :p

    Note: I do have a lot of commas and run-ons, please do not send the Grammar Nazi after me -_-

    I don't do much recording, so im not much help there. If you believe its your sdcard there is a app called "SD Speed Increase" in the market. It increases read and write on your phone. But you need to be rooted.

    Just did a test using AnTuTu Benchmark. The write on my is 4.8 MB/s and read is 11 MB/s.

    Its possible the SD just isn't fast enough. I would go ahead and get the class 10, unless you don't want to pay that much then get the class 6.

    Was hoping for some more responses within a week, but I am grateful for your input, thanks. I am going to buy a higher class microSD card.

    That are anecdotal reports that a higher class SD card does not solve the problem. Switching to Internal Storage as your default location does. I have not tried that fix yet, but I don't record much.

    Good luck.
