    Since buying my OP7t in October 2019 i have moaned about the quality of the slow motion on the OnePlus 7t. It looks like it has been upscaled from a very low resolution with a very jaggy image and the bitrate (to the naked eye) looks shocking. However last night it dawned on me that it seems i am to only one moaning about it so is it my handset in particular or is everyone's rubbish?

    What a shame that is, even the OnePlus 6 outshines it.

    Thank you for clearing it up for me.

    It seems there is an update being pushed that includes slow motion fixes so fingers crossed.

    so it's the same as the op6/6t
    Not having a 7 series to compare can't say much, but light does a great deal for slowmo. Obviously, the high speed of the camera affects the quality of the image, but well... yeah... cannot help much but tell everyone to add more light if possible to the scene

    Its nothing to do with the light sadly, it is terrible even in bright sunlight. In fact you are better off watching it at 480p because the blurriness takes away all the jagged edges.

    you should inform yourself better on how high speed works. Maybe then you would understand why resolution doesn't matter much when you are forcing the hardware to a point where it cannot perform its normal day to day usage. If you expect sharp images from those speeds you are crazy to think they will be outputted at all.

    The slow motion on the OP7t looks incredibly aliased, sharpness has noting to do with it and my comment about watching it in 480p was only to highlight that the lower resolution has an anti aliasing effect on the video being watched.

    If you think this looks fine then may i suggest you go get your eyes tested.

    I don't know what you think op6 did, but me, being a lab tester, was one of the first things I pointed out myself about the op6 series, slow motion is not particularly good. In fact, with such low light, on the 6, this would look even worse. So again, I don't get your point on saying op6 was better, when it was clearly not.

    Slow motion could be better? OFC it could. It should even. But it is what it is.

    Well unless all the videos on YouTube are cobblers every OP6 slomo video i have watched is far less aliased and with far less compression artefacts than the OP7t

    Updating to OS 10.0.9 HD65BA does seem to have brought along some small improvements, the aliasing although still noticeable isn't as bad now.
