Throughout 2021, several complaints from Galaxy flagship owners popped up on the Samsung Community website, and they all detailed similar issues. Whether it was the Galaxy S20/Galaxy S21 or Galaxy Note 20 series, a few users have highlighted some unpleasant slow-motion recording issues that seemingly affect Samsung’s flagships — or at least, a limited number of them.

Although the issue never seemed to be too widespread, it persists, at least according to some users. If you count among them, feel free to leave a comment below and share more details about the Galaxy device you’re using and the difficulties you’re experiencing while recording slow-motion videos.

We tested this camera feature on the Galaxy S21 Ultra running One UI 4.0 and the Galaxy S21+ running One UI 3.1. Slow-motion recording seems to be working as intended on both models and operating systems, and we were unable to reproduce the issue. That’s not to say it doesn’t exist — it’s just that we have yet to encounter it. Nevertheless, affected users have shared videos before, and you can check the one embedded below if you want to see exactly how this slow-motion problem manifests.

If you are experiencing choppy framerate or other visual artifacts while recording in slow motion, let us know what Galaxy phone and firmware version you’re using, and perhaps we can all help Samsung find the root of the problem. It’s still unclear if it affects only Exynos/Qualcomm variants of both, but reports seem to be leaning more towards the former chipset.
