Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo: Video

With the Neo video options, oddly enough, there's a little more to tweak than there is with the camera mode. You can play with the exposure, pick different scenes such as Sports or Night mode and choose from three focus settings.

It seems a little odd not to have these available for the camera too, but hey ho. A mini-HDMI port lets you connect to a big screen, but even watching the video playback on a laptop screen didn't wow us.

The footage is detailed to be sure, but it's not as sharp as the Nokia E7 and one of our examples shows that the microphone is susceptible to a noisy background. Shooting without the image stabiliser on also produces a somewhat jerky playback.
