    Slowmo usually flickers due to some lightsources flicker by design. You can't see it by eye but slowmo recording makes it very obvious.

    I don't remember the specs of front camera right now but it may lack the nessesary specs to be able to be even close to the quality of main camera. There are a few cases where front camera slowmo could be useful though. Atleast if being used at my work. But it may need more light than main camera.

    Is this low light thing can be fixed via software update?

    No. Software can t beat physics. You can pump up ISO value, but this will result in way more noise. So it s a matter of balance. To be honest_ i love slo mo, when making movies at the shooting range while firing a gun, and sometimes in nature. But after 3-5 videos it was getting boring ,same for the astrophotography function in Pxel. it s great, funny, but not as useful as we migjht think at the beginning. Video mode needs a lot of improvement like a pro mode and many more, and slo mo is just one detail of the wide field to get improved.

    Realistic scenario - maybe slowmo in front cam can help us to increase the percentage of security via face unlock because once my OP7 was unlocked by my brother.

    Another use maybe a slomo kiss to your loved ones who are connected with you on internet.

    Holy crap- you really want them to watch inside your mouth??? Sorry, but this don t seem a really realistic and useful one. In my eyes this is a kind of niche, not used by many people on an everyday base worldwide. Maybe you can code an app for this, or search for an existing one, and then check downloads of this apps.

    I introduced slowmo at work as a tool to find and solve timing and mechanical issues at work. In some cases holding the phone in front of you and using front camera could be useful. One of those cases could be recording something under a machine or hard to reach areas where you can't point and record with main camera that easilly. Seeing the subject of interest would make it easier. I use it every now and then to take pictures when I have trouble seeing some stuff, like a label and such.

    Oh, i m glad to read a realistic case.

    Personally i used the slo mo at the shooting range , watching a pistol or shotgun repeating and checking for issues when ammo got stuck and weapon jammed.

    But how many people are using the front cam this way like @Swejuggalo ? Especially when a small mirror can help using the main camera at all? His argument is valid, indeed. But i m afraid Oneplus won t code and set up specific hardware changes just for a handful of users. :(
