If you are using an iPhone while your friend is using an Android, or vice versa, you may often find it frustrating when sharing files between these two different devices. For example, you want to share a tutorial from your iPhone to your friend's Android phone, but the video is so pixelated that your friend can't watch it to grab all the details.

Don't worry. In this guide, you will learn how to fix blurry videos sent from iPhone to Android. The methods include how to make the iPhone videos clear and how to transfer videos from iPhone to Android without losing quality. Let's get started. 

Why are iPhone Videos Blurry When Sent to Android?

One of the greatest experiences of using an iPhone is that you always enjoy great video quality. Though you can share videos from iPhone to Android in various ways, the videos are not always as clear as they are on an iPhone. Why is video from iPhone to Android blurry? Here are three main reasons for degraded video quality:

  • The difference in screen resolutions: iPhones often have different screen resolutions and aspect ratios compared with Android devices. If the receiving Android device's display resolution and aspect ratio are not compatible with the sent iPhone videos, it may lead to scaling or cropping, affecting the original video quality.
  • Video compression: If you have chosen to use messaging apps and social media platforms to send iPhone videos to Android, Most of them will compress the videos to reduce the file sizes, resulting in resolution reduction. 
  • Not properly downloaded from the cloud: If you download shared videos from a cloud service, there is a risk that they will be blurry, especially if the network is unstable or if you forget to select genuine video quality.

Now that you know the possible causes of blurry videos, it is time to get hands-on with how to fix blurry videos sent from iPhone to Android. If you are looking for ways for transferring data from Android to iPhone, you can read the following passage:
