Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S7 owners reporting slow motion video issues

If you’re located in China or the United States and you own a Galaxy S7, you may want to check out the slow motion video recording feature on your handset as many users have been complaining that the video stutters and skips during playback. This bug only appears to be affecting those with Snapdragon 820 variants, which are exclusive to the aforementioned regions, and not the South Korean company’s in-house Exynos 8890 model.

Samsung has yet to respond to the comments regarding the fault, which we presume has something to do with a problematic camera driver. If this does turn out to be the case, the bug should be able to be fixed by way of a standard over-the-air (OTA) maintenance update.

In the meantime, be sure to check out the videos below to see the slow-mo stuttering in action.

Well, I have never noticed it before (mainly because I never use slow motion as it is pointless on a phone) but upon a small test I can see this issue. It seems like frames are being dropped during the processing phase resulting in what looks like stuttering. It’s not uncommon at all to be honest and nothing to worry about. It should be a quick and easy fix…

Probably just a software bug perhaps?
