    It's amazing to me how off topic this thread went.

    If you didn't know the answer there was no need to reply

    It's very simple. Is there still a 10 minute 4k video recording limit?

    seriously not that hard guys
    I think it went a tad off topic from simple confusion. People are allowed to post. We don't lock them down to only specific responses here so yeah .

    You kinda have to remember you are asking people about a phone that literally no one but reviewers have yet so there will be various discussion about it.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say yes it will still have a recording limit. 10 Mins at the least or mayber more but not much. This is an android software limitation and a SOC limitation which is a problem because of how many android manufactures use the software. Since Google makes it generic to cover all phones their is no tight integration between software and hardware, like on the Apple side. The snapdragon is just taxed to much and will heat up, you don't want that going on for to long. Also a faster storage controller would do wonders in this regard.

    I think back to also when Samsung exynos soc didn't have the same limitation because they could tailor it more to the chipset which was their own.

    I used Seagate's storage calculator to find out how much a 4k video set to 30 FPS would take. 170.85 GB. That's a lot. Now, I don't know the exact specs for the Samsung camera, and I will provide the link for what I used, but I set the list like this: Cameras: 1, FPS: 30 (that was the max), Hours per day: 1, Days stored: 1, Resolution: 8MP/4K, Quality: High (I assumed this would be the quality on the Samsung camera).

    To the OP, unfortunately Samsung has not posted the time limit specs regarding the S10 so no one knows; they can only guess based on past products. I found these stats for the Note 9 and would assume the S10 stats will be very similar if not the same:

    3840 x 2160, 60fps: 5 minute limit
    3840 x 2160, 30fps: 10 minute limit
    2560 x 1440, 30fps: no limit
    1920 x 1080, 60fps: 10 minute limit
    1920 x 1080, 30fps: no limit
    2224 x 1080, 30fps: no limit
    1440 x 1440, 30fps: no limit
    1280 x 720, 30fps: no limit

    4K video is awesome but it is very taxing on the processor and generates heat quite easily. With no venting there are typically set time limits to protect the hardware from being damaged.

    Thanks for info. Looks like anything with 60 fps have limits.

    got an update for you all

    just walked out of BestBuy and played with the demo units there seems to be no limitation on 4K recording

    this is for both 30fps and 60fps

    rear and front cameras tested no limit from what I've seen on the S10e but I imagine all the S10 variants don't have the limit

    but to my surprise having something in the way of the display is a deal-breaker to me as of right now. having the status bar being extra large to accommodate for the whole punch is just too much in my opinion.

    I honestly thought and hoped this would be better than the notch but it isn't it's actually a little worse than the teardrop notch we've seen from a few manufacturers


    and the phones look a lot better in pictures than in person with all thr fingerprints on them.

    was really hoping to upgrade my phone this year but I guess I'll wait and see if someone makes a stock Android pop up camera phone that I like

    Hello and welcome. I preorder a S10 Plus and today i chat wit the german samsung support. I ask them " Its right that there is a 10 minutes time limitation for 4k60fps video recording"?
    Answer was "YES".

    Now im confused.
    What happens after that 10 minutes recording?
    How is the break?

    Here is a YouTube video about it to. More and more confirm no limit. It breaks up the videos in 4gb files.

    The issue isn't the file size, it's heat management of the processor.

    Actually technically he is right in the world of computers with fat32 you can’t go any larger than 4gb. So it has to break it down. That may have been the reason before or not I am not sure. Do you have proof of it being heat management because I haven’t seen anything documented of that?

    I don't think that would be the issue. That is a very old analogy and file systems have matured a lot.

    Sadly, its just the way the architecture works with fat32. You can't work around it.

    Lol you don't have to educate me on PC stuff .

    My question is .. is Samsung running that? That's the part we are not sure on. I'd be stunned if they still were seeing as how old it is.

    That is not the reason. 4k time limits on Android have always been due to overheating and thermal limits. Samsung hides it, but Sony was very upfront with a warning message that the device was overheating and video recording had to be stopped.

    Do you have anything from Samsung that states this was the issue as well? Many cameras for years have recorded 4K for long periods with no issues.

    The only thing I have been able to find and it's from Samsung, that it's due to the battery itself getting too hot.

    Manufacturer is irrelevant. This is a hardware issue that all Snapdragon devices have.

    Tell you what, once you can back your statements up, we will believe you. Till then, stop this non-sense.

    And if it was a hardware limitation, why is it that you can start another 10 minute video right away with no issues?

    Drop your attitude. You've been a member here for what, a year? These problems have existed for at least 5 years. Its a well known issue that 4k video causes overheating issues. Just because you refuse to acknowledge it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist and isn't the reason for time limits.

    I don't have the attitude, you do and everyone can see it in all your posts. I am trying to have a conversation here but all you keep saying it's this and that and that's it and nothing to back what you are saying up.

    Length of time here means nothing. And I asked you to provide some form of evidence what you say is true. Again, if it was hardware, why can we just start another video for another 10 minutes with no issues?

    Sometimes something becomes "well known" based on rumor and supposition that just gets passed around. I see it every day. You may be right, but it would help to see where your info came from. The fact that you can immediately start a new 10 min 4K 60fps recording after the first one stops is a valid question.
