I wonder how many of you when speaking about low light performance of the Camera for Photos actually use HDR ON ?

As for the 4k Video this is still very new tech currently limited to 5 minutes video which is not very good but it`s connected to some buffers filling up. I could imagine that the issue is mostly with the RAM memory not enough for 4k Video recording on the S5 as all of us know N3 has bigger Ram size which will explain why there is flickering on the S5 probably because video buffers are filled out.

Hope this helps.

So all those other flagships with 4K video and 2GB ram are also unable to record too well? That's not the case. 2GB is well enough for the task.

This is more a sensor/Firmware issue in my opinion. Or camera tuning that is needed.

Some article mentioned that the limit is more of the phone hitting a Thermal threshold due to the high demand of 4k recording.

Really useless comment to post on an S5 forum, don't you think?

Maybe most of the tweaks to the camera firmware will come with 4.4.3, which is due this month on the S5.

Also Sony has a new 16mp OIS module coming out soon, which is apparently is going into the Note 4, looks like Samsung don't have much faith in it's own sensor if that being the case, because of all the bigging up they did of their own sensor here http://connect.dpreview.com/post/031...isocell-sensor

You think they would put it in the Note 4 if rumours end up being true.

Definitely need to buy a camera if you're really concerned about video.
