Now that Skype for iPhone has support for video calling, Lifehacker has gone on to compare the two of the most popular video calling options available for iPhone users, FaceTime and Skype, to see which one has better audio and visual quality.

FaceTime vs Skype

The test compares video calling over WiFi from iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 (or iPod touch 4G), and iPhone 4 to a Mac using both FaceTime and Skype video calling technologies. The test also shows video calling quality of Skype over AT&T 3G network as it has official support to work on it.

The test performed in the video above clearly shows that FaceTime has an edge in video quality over Skype. But when it comes to more broader compatibility and support, Skype is a clear winner as it supports cross platform video calling between iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to Windows, Mac and vice versa. It also has support for video calling over 3G, something which FaceTime lacks until of course you go ahead and jailbreak your iPhone.

So which one of these do you use the most for video calling? Skype or FaceTime?
