Thank you, great review. I noticed something in the video: does your phone has the infamous "gap" problem?
How long can you shoot in 4K before overheating?

There are gaps between screen and the casing I am not sure if that is a problem though. It didn't bother me to be honest.

I have never checked how long it would take to overheat on 4K recording , as I have only recorded short clips. The heating was noticeable nevertheless.

Hopefully this is something that can be fixed with an update. Tbh though I wouldn't use 4K on a daily basis, as don't have any screens that support t and the file sizes are huge.
