Poor quality on iPhone

I made a little highlight video of my dirt bike ride, and it looks perfectly clear on my computer when I view it but I sent it to my iPhone and it looks a bit low quality. I've made videos before, the exact same way and sent them to my phone in the same way and they were perfectly clear until this last video. Anyone else w this issue?

Re: Poor quality on iPhone

The iPhone will use a smaller res, mobile friendly version of the content. The full res version of the content is on the SD card, and is what is imported to your computer, so that's why you see the difference.

Re: Poor quality on iPhone

 TO ADD, I have an Iphone 5. When I am creating my clip, GoPro Studio says my footage is 1980x1080 59.94fps (I think/whatever that means, I'm not into video really... now it won't let me open Studio to check, ugh.) so shouldn't my iPhone be able to clearly see this footage instead of being seemingly low quality? From what I've read, it should be compatible. I made my clip, exported it to my external drive and dragged and dropped it into a message I sent to my phone from my Mac. I've done this before and it worked perfectly fine, no problems. Aaand, the video is under a minute so its not the length of the video
