Today’s flagship smartphones pack cameras which rival even the DSLRs. One of the most fascinating features of a flagship smartphone camera is the ability to record slow-motion videos. Not only the slow-motion videos look cool, they also provide an extra layer of creativity. Slow motion effects can make a mundane video really fun to watch and provide a completely different viewing experience. So, if you don’t own a flagship Android device but still want to enjoy and create slow-motion videos, here are some of the best slow motion videos apps for Android which can help you do just that.

Best Slow Motion Camera and Video Apps for Android

1. Slow Motion Video FX

Slow Motion Video FX is the best slow motion camera and video app for Android. The app not only allows you to record video in slow motion but it also allows to convert your already existing videos into slow motion videos. The app is pretty simple to use. When you launch the app and tap on the “Start Slow Motion” button, it will ask you, if you want to record a slow-motion video or convert an already existing one.

1. Slow Motion Video FX - 1

Depending on your choice, the app will then either open the camera app for recording your video or lets you search in your video library. Once you have shot or selected your video, you can set the speed anywhere between 0 to 1. The closer the value to zero, the slower your video will be.

1. Slow Motion Video FX - 2

If you choose a value above 1, instead of creating a slow-motion video, the app will create a hyperlapse video. The best part about using this app is that the slow-motion videos look really natural and do not feature any frame drops or stutter. If you are looking for an app to create slow motion videos on your Android device, this is the app to do that. The app is free to use with ads, however, there is an in-app purchase option which removes the ads.

  1. Agree with adrhdhd. I currently have the Note 9, and the super slo mo camera function on it is the best slo mo capture I’ve ever used. The apps on this list definitely have a better editing component as far as where to add the slo motion effect (which i feel the Note 9 slo mo lacks a little bit), but the FPS on these apps is so low it looks super choppy, nothing beats how smooth the Note 9 looks.

  2. #1 rated Slow motion video fx has a nice curve you can drag to smoothly vary speed. However, good looking playback is corrupted during saving. The saved video has double images on my s7. Does reviewer experience this? Also changing speed of earlier portions appears to shift successive portions, requiring a strict beginning to end usage . model. That is, you cant go back to tweek early edits.

    • I didn’t experience the problem you just described. It worked smoothly for me. Also, one you export the video, you cannot change the settings as it is with any video, audio, or photo editing app.

  3. All of them are fake. There is no app besides the built in camera that can record slow motion video. Even if your phone is capable of that.
