Anyone have a HTC Desire X, or a Samsung Galaxy S3 mini, or a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2?

I'm trying to find out which, if any, of these three phones has the capability of zooming when video recording.

Thanks

Oops - wrong phone. Thought you meant One X (which can)

Ace 2 doesn't have zoom at all. I believe there are apps you can get for it but reduce quality. Never really looked into it myself.

I know the Galaxy S3 can.

You just do it with the volume buttons on the left.

Like all of them though it's just going to be a digital zoom and looses quality when zoomed right in.

It doesn't even zoom on the normal camera It's the only thing I don't like about the phone. I tend to use my iPod Touch to take photos as the camera on that is better. Hang on - can you zoom in on photos/videos with the volume buttons?

Just double checked and you can zoom with the volume rocker on the S3 (got me wondering about it and had to double check).

No not on the Ace 2 It's one of those small things about the phone that really bugs me.
