Hi,

I believe that the Snapdragon 800 msm8974 CPU SoC used by the G2 supports video encoding up to 120fps 1080p video or 30fps 4K video. Indeed the Note 3 which also uses the Snapdragon 800 can record 4k. Whilst 4k recording isnt of much use at the moment, 120fps 1080p video would be!

Any thoughts on whether an app can be developed to tap into that functionality or would it require a firmware update from LG?

Thanks

Bump! - ya, why did LG not include 120fps? the hardware fully supports it..

Im swapping my Note 3 for a G2 as soon as VZW drops the white one, and no 120fps kinda bums me out.

Bump again. I was reading a review on AnandTech and they said LG only enabled up to 1080p60 since the sensor can handle it. Does that mean the sensor can't handle 1080p120? What about 720p120? A friend of mine showed me the slow-mo on his 5s and it looked better than the slo-mo we can do on the G2, which I'm assuming is because of the 120fps. Would love 120fps, even if it's at 720p. It would be something I would root this phone for.

Yeah, what happens is that the video is shot at 120fps and he slowed the video down, similar to how we can slow play speed. The video is played at 60fps in slo-mo and looked a lot smoother and less grainy than the video on the G2.

I've seen a modified camera app for the lg g2 here on XDA. The developer tried to make more than 60 fps and in the next version of the changelog he put it back to 60 fps cause LG "limits" the fps to 60. Too bad.

But he says that is an HW limit or it's limited by SW?

1) Back Camera Records 720P Videos @ 90 FPS. [Broken- Max FPS limited by LG is 60]
