This update is launched in order to take care of several features that the S7 users were reporting lately. One of the major issues was with the slow-motion video recording. When played back, the video appears to stutter and skip, but those with an Exynos model aren’t seeing the same issue.
“Wow, this really sucks. It’s one of my favorite features,” reported one Reddit user, who was first to report the problem. “There are several videos where the slow motion is really choppy and skips a lot.”
Furthermore, users were reporting the issue with both the devices. “Having the same issue as well, both to internal and SD card,” writes another Reddit user. “Bad UX for someone coming from an iPhone.”
