The Motorola MotoSmart's camcorder app, like the stills camera, is rather light on options.

You have the same white balance, EV and scene modes for videos that you had when taking still photos, accompanied by the usual sepia/negative/mono image filters if you go mad and decide to ruin your clips.

Those, and a 50/60Hz flicker reduction tool and audio mute, are your only video options.

On the video side of things, maximum file resolution is 720 x 480, with video lacking colour and vibrancy like the still images, but emerging at a smooth frame rate (a solid 30fps) and with a good level of detail.

Motorola MotoSmart review

The Motorola MotoSmart produces better video than some budget Android phones, but it's still not really anything to be particularly proud of.
