The SoC is not the culprit because even pixel 4a has a snapdragon 730G (almost the same as 730) which can record in 60fps without any problems.
So basically its Samsung that isn't putting enough effort into the camera's software on the midrange devices.
Unless I'm wrong and it's the camera's problem which I doubt since all the things you said are software side (maybe except stabilization since this phone does not have OIS which is a physical thing, but pixel 4a also doesn't have it))
What I'm saying is that this is by no means justified. They can put the option there not as the default but have a warning that going 60fps will lower details. Android is about choices afterall.

But it's a different kind of stress. If they want to ensure details are preserved properly, video to be stabilised properly, metadata to be stored properly, dynamic range to not be destroyed (remember, now the slowest possible shutter speed is down to 1/60, not really slow at all, gonna destroy video at night). Thus, at night, either ISO pumps up (along with noise) or details get smeared. It's hard.
Rickypoo, 01 Nov 2020What is ashame is that you didn't read the specs before buyingThis is the spec I see in this very website:
video: 4K@30fps, 1080p@30/240fps, 1080p@960fps; gyro-EIS
I assumed 30/240 means from 30 to 240 you can set it but guess what, it means thats what the slowmo mode does.
even if i knew that it would not make sense like why should it be able to record 60fps for slowmo but not standard?

But personally i would not trade a little bit of cleaner video for the smooth 60fps experience.
i wish more people stood up against this because the camera and the SOC is clearly capable.
they dont so now they have also locked the cameras....
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2020Did you try using an other app like open camera or gcam?Samsung is back at it again.
just as i thought i could get a camera app because its of the few snapdragon samsungs outside of US. (gcam works much better on snapdragon)
but guess what?
samsung has locked the cameras so you cant use them with another app.
specially since oneui 2.5 they have also locked the selfie camera...
what a scam they are.

Anonymous, 02 Nov 2020Try increasing it to your preferred levels in settingsWith vibration feedback in full setting it feels much better though not as good as my previous A8 plus.
TItoo88, 01 Nov 2020The most annoying thing in this phone is lousy haptic feedback. Vibration is so poor. Try increasing it to your preferred levels in settings

Big updates in OneUI or the Android version sometimes causes bugs in previously installed apps. If the problem persists only a fresh start will do - complete factory reset so no app installed on the previous version of OneUI gets carried over to the newer version. All apps including system apps and pre installed apps that cannot be uninstalled will have a fresh install under the updated operating system.

I was scrolling through Instagram and suddenly my A71 which I bought about 3 or 4 months ago started freezing and bugging.Then it completely blacked out and only displayed the Samsung logo for about 20 minutes before it restarted.This is the first time this happened on this phone and has never happened to any of my previous Samsung phones.The software is on one ui 2.5 October patch.Is anyone else facing this issue.
