    4K video setting

    As per our experience, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 can capture some great 4K videos! To select 4K, tap the camera icon, go to Settings, select video side and there you can select FHD. However, choosing 4K will eliminate some features including HDR video, video effects, video stabilization, pictures while taking video and tracking autofocus (all restrains to the phone's processor still not being able to handle 4K video quality)

Moving the yellow sliders will shorten or lengthen the portion that you want to appear as slo-mo. At the same time you can also select the speed of the slow motion videos in 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 speed.
