Smartphone cameras have gotten to the point where they can take impressive slow-motion videos. If you have a Samsung Galaxy phone, you can do this too. You may even have the option to take super slow-motion videos.

Depending on your Samsung Galaxy phone, you should have the option to record slow-motion videos in the camera app. High-end Galaxy phones even have a 960fps slow-motion mode.
