    Just pointing this out there, because I couldnt replicate the tests myself, and would like some feed back from people who would know how to handle this better, but has anyone checked to see if the slow motion recording is actually accurate?

    This video says otherwise.




    Claims that the iphone skips from 130 fps to 200 fps.

    I tried to use iMovie, but when exporting the video it automatically exports to 24 fps, unless i forgot to change a setting.

    So just to be sure if anyone has any real method to test this.

    What a horrible video. I couldn't get past the first second

    The note 7 does have a better camera. I'll probably go buy one. Oh wait.....

    A bit disappointing considering I moved up from a 5s, but I guess can't will all aspects.

    So has anyone tried to test the actual frame rate it records at?

    Available light will affect the frame rate I believe.

    I've done some slo-mo golf swing videos in the sun with pretty good results.

    Doesn't it have the same camera that the S7 does? Might as well get the S7 instead and avoid the whole catching fire bit with the Note.

    Yea, I believe the FPS is determined by the lighting condition as well.

    I was wanting to see this but the actors and production turned me off in less than 10 seconds.

    Maybe made for a different audience.

    Seemed like a well put together video to me...

    Odd how the framerates are all over the place while shooting slo-mo.
    Makes sense, the iPhone camera has always been way better in the bright outdoor sunlight than other conditions.

    So you think it might be true that the iPhone doesn't shoot in 240 consistently?

    Also, in other vids there have been noticeable differences in the way slow motion works on the iPhone and feels less capable.

    I'm not saying the iPhone 7 is bad, but I really do think Apple isn't putting as much effort into their phones and knows that they have a very dedicated fan base that will buy.

    And with the way things are going with Samsung, I do think that their next phone will try to be made to really overshadow the mistake they had with the note 7.

    Well the faster the frame rate the less light there is for each frame. Shooting in lower light already limits the availability of light so the camera likely uses a slower speed to capture the footage since otherwise it would be too dark.

    Does that mean that the samsung legitimately has a better camera?

    I mean, that it has the capability of producing pretty good quality in low light.

    Low light images with a Samsung had noise in the shots just like Apple's images. Both cameras as good, Apple is just choosing my control over it's camera.

    How about for the slow motion capture? I'm sure not many people use this regularly, but does the inconsistent recording frame rate seem deceiving?

    Samsung has a wider aparture and larger sensor so it does capture more light. Consequently, lack of light is less of an image for its slow motion videos than for iPhone 7.
