Mind the audio in the video
The quality of the audio matters as much as that of the video image itself. Unless you are planning on adding new audio track while video editing, consider the audio in the video important. Most of the inbuilt microphones of the smartphones are of poor quality and record the harsh wind noises and surrounding disturbances. Hence, recording indoors is recommended than recording outdoors, however, if your video needs the outdoor ambience, then go for an external audio recording device.
Check the lighting
Shoot in brightly lit areas to avoid grainy spots in the video and unnecessary shadowy areas. A good quality video could always be identified with its lighting features. While shooting a professional quality video with your smartphone keep in check to not point the lens directly at the light source as it would create lens flaring and unusable overexposed footage.
Enhance the videos with the different mobile apps
Android and iPhone users could relate to this as there is an abundance of video editing apps in both the stores.
