Samsung Galaxy S5 record videos in 4K - setting

The Samsung Galaxy S5 offers the possibility to take videos in 4K. Through the built-in camera and processor performance it is possible to record such high-resolution 4K videos with a smartphone. Especially as more and more television can play 4K videos and movies, it makes perfect sense to record videos in 4K resolution with the Samsung Galaxy S5.

However, the setting of your smartphone is presetted from the factory to "only" Full HD. The background is that 4K requires a lot of memory for the video file and therefore your internal device memory would be occupied very quickly. With Full HD you can record videos much longer. We want you to show now how to record on the Samsung Galaxy S5 videos in 4K and what setting you have to set iwithin the camera app.

Open the camera app and then tap on the gear icon to open the settings for the camera. You now find various tiles on your display. One of them is called: video size

Tap on this tile and a window will open. Choose "UHD 3840x2160 (16: 9)" what corresponds to the 4K video resolution. Finish! Now, if you record a video with your Samsung Galaxy S5, then this will be recorded in the best 4K video resolution. But keep in mind as mentioned above, that your internal space will be used up very quickly if you use this setting on your Samsung Galaxy S5.

You know now how you can take videos in 4K or UHD on the Samsung Galaxy S5.

It also seems to default back to HD whenever you return to your camera app, so make sure to re-tune it to 4K every time you return.
