The Super Slow-mo camera feature has been at the forefront of Samsung's marketing push for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, and the company says its engineers had to sit down and design a faster image sensor so that its latest flagships could slow down a 0.2-second moment to nearly six seconds. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ can even record super slow-motion videos on their own when they detect movement, and in manual mode, one can capture up to 20 super slow moments in a single video.

Super Slow-mo is great, but it's not perfect

Super Slow-mo isn't a perfect feature, though. It doesn't work great indoors or at night, even when you think the lighting is good, since the camera has to use a fast shutter speed to record these videos. These videos are also recorded at only 720p resolution, so they don't do justice to the beautiful high-resolution display on the Galaxy S9 and S9+. But, when it works, it works great, and you can get some amazing slow-motion videos using the Super Slow-mo feature if you time things right.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ hit retail shelves in mid-March, and were released in more than a 100 markets by the end of the month. That means many of you have been using either of these phones for a couple of weeks and have probably tried out Super Slow-mo, and we want to know how you like it. Is it one of your favorite Galaxy S9 features, is it something that's nice to have but not so important, or do you think it sucks?

Whatever your opinion, let us know by voting in the poll below and leaving a comment. And in case you missed it, there's also an option to take regular slow-motion videos on the Galaxy S9, though it isn't enabled by default. Go here to see how you can fix that.

Poll results: It looks like a majority of voters like Super Slow-mo, while 21 percent of voters think the video resolution should be higher. 9 percent voters think the feature is good when it works, while another 9 percent don't find it too exciting. 11 percent say they don't care for slow-motion videos, and fortunately for Samsung, only 7 percent of voters say they don't like the feature as it doesn't work when they want it to, so there's room for improvement but Super Slow-mo seems to have enough fans for it to warrant the attention it gets from the Galaxy S9 maker.
