Ultra slow motion is almost as important as 4K 60 FPS footage?

Ultra slow motion is almost as important as 4K 60 FPS footage?
This year, as always, phone manufacturers are pushing the hardware on their smartphones up to threshold and beyond, especially when it comes to cameras. While imagery is consistently good among the different brands' top-tier devices, extra features that challenge the hardware have been introduced. Like 4K recording at 60 FPS, or the new ultra-slow-motion recording at the mind-boggling 960 FPS.

While these are currently features found on the Xperia XZ2, Galaxy S9, and iPhone X, rest assured that the competitors will look to add similar ones to their phones this year. It is at this thought that we stopped and wondered — would we rather have the industry prioritize working on 4K 60 FPS recording, or do we want to see super-slow-motion get better?

As we wondered, we thought we'd ask you as well! Here are the poll results:

Which camera feature is more important to you?

Both are important for tech heads. I am pretty sure most common consumers would only care about super ultra high definition instead of terms like 60fps and ultra slow motion.

Most people don't have 4k TVs to play back on so not sure why the 4k playback is a concern at all. And asshats regularly tell me that 4k on a phone or tablet is unnecessary so still not sure why 4k is important.

That is why there are 4K phones... Record on it, watch on it... Easy ..... No content is recorded 1440p. The content recorded 4K can be played QHD. Some ppl ask for QHD and hate on Full HD phones.. QHD is the most useless.. No TV is QHD.

No real filmaker uses 60fps.

Is the 960fps at 720p or 1080p?
