My PC downsizes my Galaxy HD video to MP4...why?

I would like to find out how I can download HD video from my Galaxy S5 to my pc without having it downsized to MP4. It kind of defeats the purpose of recording video in HD if you can't maintain that HD quality after you've transferred the video to your computer so that you can edit it. I found this out when I was doing some converting with a video conversion program I have and noticed that when I was going to convert one of the video clips from my Galaxy S5, it said that it was an MP4 video! I'm not sure why this is happening because I'd like to be able to edit my Galaxy videos in full HD, not an inferior quality clip.
If anyone here knows what I can do to correct this I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any replies.
Welcome to the forum

AFIK there is no reason an MP4 file can't be HD. What are the relative file sizes. What format were you expecting/wanting? A decent editing program should tell you the resolution.
