Method 2 - Set Phone Camera Parameter
You can change the video parameter when you use a mobile phone shot video to reduce the video file size, keep in mind that the higher the resolution and frame rate is, the more space the finished video will take up on your iPhone. The following forms show the relationship between video parameter and video files size:
- 720p HD at 30fps: 40MB per minute
- 1080p HD at 30fps (default resolution): 60MB per minute
- 1080p HD at 60fps (smoother video): 90MB per minute
- 4K at 24fps: 135MB per minute
- 4K at 30fps: 170MB per minute
- 4K at 60fps: 400MB per minute

Part 4: More Tips About Video
How to improve video quality?
If you record a video in 720p, can it be upconverted to 4k resolution?
No, you can't, check the reason: "you can not convert 720p video to 4k"
Any other ways to enhance video quality?
Now, we have AI techology to enhance any video quality.
This AI-based video quality enhancer uses the deep-learning-based super-resolution technology and can enhance video from 480p (SD) to 1080p (Full HD), and from 1080p to 4K. A deep learning AI engine can study and analyze a low-resolution video frame by frame and create and fill in identical neighboring pixels to enlarge the frame by 300%.
What is lossless video file compression?
Lossless compression doesn’t throw any information out — instead, it simply stores the information in a more efficient way.
This type of compression enables you to perfectly reconstruct the original file. For example, you could compress a video file to make it small enough to send to another person. The recipient could then uncompress the file and open it on their computer without losing any quality.
In short, you’ll want to use lossless when you want a perfect copy of your video. It will take up more space, but the data will be preserved perfectly. If a “good enough” copy will suffice, lossy compression will save you a significant amount of space.
How about VR & AR?
In the future, it’s likely we’ll experience VR/AR in ways we can’t yet imagine. But, for now, there are plenty of imminent tech advances to look forward to. We’ll have faster, lighter, more affordable VR technology. And advances in smartphone technology (such as better cameras and processors) will mean we can enjoy slicker AR and VR experiences on our phones. And with 5G wireless networks, we'll be able to enjoy them wherever we are in the world.
Is 8K the future video resolution trend?
We predict that 8K—an upgrade and complement to 4K resolution—will generate US$3.3 billion in global revenue in 2021, with this amount rising steadily over subsequent years. These revenues will come predominantly from sales of 8K TV sets to consumers (an anticipated 1 million units with an average selling price of US$3,300), with the standard becoming increasingly popular for the largest television set sizes. In addition, sales of equipment (such as cameras, monitors, storage, and computers) related to the creation and production of 8K content should generate hundreds of millions of dollars globally for the year.
