Video footage using the default settings on the Alcatel One Touch 990 proved even more disappointing than the stills camera. Check out the pixilation on the grass and the river in our test clip. Colours also seem washed out, and transitions from light to dark aren't superb either.

The sound is the only part that we can really find kind words for, capturing our disbelieving exclamation well.

It's worth noting that you have a plethora of video quality options, including WVGA, VGA, CIF, QVGA and QCIF, plus a choice of encoders, but we're not sure that the hardware can make real use of them.
