Q: Want my kids to learn Video Editing. What smartphone do you recommend for this?

A: You know they're just going to use the phone for Youtube right? Hehe. But if there's discipline, then I do recommend the following phones for the purpose of running Video Editing Apps.

Tip1: Do not get a 32GB phone as it will fill up quickly.

Tip2: No, getting a 125GB microsd will not solve a phone full of apps. Android doesn't have Imovie so you'll need a lot of apps to edit a video.

Tip3: Always check the max size of microsd card of your device and buy the max. Have the phone save all videos and photos there, so your main phone memory is free for apps.

Today is June 2018, my recommended affordable smartphone for this (and other Social Media Tasks) is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5.  This already has 2 cameras at the back.

This is not to be confused with the Xiaomi Redmi 5 - w/c has a lower megapixel selfie camera and only one camera at the back (approx 9,000)

My Best Recommendation however is below - and it's only P 2,000 more. 

WHY?

BETTER BACK CAMERA: Redmi Note 5 Has 2 Back Cameras, so you have blurred background (bokeh) effects use by DSLR cameras.

BETTER FRONT CAMERA: Higher Resolution Selfie photos.

What's the impact to Video Editing? None in the editing part. But the photos and videos you take (and edit) on the REDMI NOTE 5 will look more professional and gorgeous.

Look at the video below. Video starts by showing the videos shot by a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5

Video editing needs SMOOTH GRAPHICS - enough to run games.

If your budget is a bit higher by 2K, I strongly recommend the REDMI NOTE 5

Q: How about the MicroSD you talked about? Where do I get that?

A: It's 2018, don't go to the store. Just get it delivered to your home! Pick this one I selected: A 128 GB Microsd.

So how do you make the phone save to SDcard automatically? Here's a tutorial:
