Why Are Videos Blurry When Sent from Android to iPhone

Videos can appear grainy when sent from an Android device to an iPhone due to various reasons. It is more than likely to be one of the following:

  • Video compression. When a video is sent through MMS or a messaging app, it is often compressed to reduce its file size, resulting in a great loss of quality.
  • Screen resolution. The Android phone and iPhone have different screen resolutions. The video that looks clear on Android may appear blurry on iPhone. 
  • Network issues. A slow or inconsistent network connection could be the cause of the blurriness. Videos are compressed more than necessary to complete the data transmission quickly.

You can try using the methods listed below to send videos from Android to iPhone while maintaining the original quality.
