One of the most important features that is still exclusive to flagship Android devices is the ability to record videos in slow motion. While most of the other functions have been filtered to budget devices, the ability to record videos in slow motion is something that only flagship devices can perform.

With the help of these applications, you can record videos in slow motion on any Android device. If you are interested in this function, read on while we show you how to enable slow motion on any Android device:
