    Does the Pre 3 automatically record in 720p or is there a setting you have to do to switch it? I recorded a video and I noticed that its not very clear.
    Outside it looked pretty decent, and as soon as I went inside it got blurry and fuzzy. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my phone?

    Uploaded a video to give you guys an idea.

    It may be issues with the low light conditions inside your house

    Try installing Jason's patch that complements his "LED Torch" app that turns on the camera flash when you are recording video.

    Hmm, my videos aren't so blurry... this might sound silly but try cleaning off your lens?
    However, I do get the lag every few seconds that you have, and it's annoying... I recorded a lecture and it really ruins it...

    Any suggestions?

    I haven't played with the video at all, but that sounds like classic symtom of the camera just upping the gain ('fake ISO') rather than opening the aperture in darker conditions. So your blurryness is not a resolution limited thing, it means the Pre's camera is physically not getting enough photons to give a clear picture.

    So when the light drops, to keep the image the same brightness, the 'video signal' is just amplified. Of course this just means you amp up the 'noise' as well, giving a blurry image.

    Basically the only fix is to turn on more lights or use the flash LED as people have suggested.

    EDIT: having watched your video (very envious of the SoCal weather btw) it might be the opposite: inside you have darkish conditions with very bright light coming through the shutters. possibly, the Pre thinks 'wow we've got loads of light, close the shutter lots', when actually that lights mostly coming from a very small spot on the video. As a result the rest of the image suffers. Notice how the blurring really occurs when the camera is shaking

    Does turning the rarely-mentioned anti-shake function on or off make a difference?

    I thought it looked mighty good outside. I will test. But I think it looks like mine does.
