Default Did 4.4.2 solve low FPS video recording in low light?

I sold my Nexus 5 bought at launch because of this issue. The video camera simply records awful videos in low light, more specifically, at 20 fps.

Recently, I've heard that 4.4.2 update solved this issue, even though no website wrote about this, I was quite amazed.
One friend sent me a couple of videos. It is easy to say that they are smooth, like all video recordings should be.

Can anyone confirm this?

Let's see. Is your thread title a question? Is there a q&a forum here Besides the general forum? Would a search have answered your question?

But yeah, the answer us that on 4.4.1/4.4.2, video mode on nexus 5 puts framerate on a high priority. It tries to maintain 30fps during record in
However, in low light conditions, each frame is short(33ms) and does not capture a lot of light. The video may be darker than before. You could so some post processing to turn up the brightness

I am looking to sell my gs4 and get the n5 because of the updates, smoothness etc. The video recording is a deal breaker for me because of the low framerate. It is a shame to watch and share videos at such a low fps.
I'm not sure if they will ever solve the hissing audio ...
