STOR­AGE RE­QUIRE­MENTS

HWM (Singapore) - - LEARN -

With over 8 mil­lion pix­els com­pared to about 2 mil­lion of 1080p record­ing, 4K videos take up a lot of stor­age space. In our test­ing, across all 4K ca­pa­ble smart­phones, on av­er­age, one sec­ond of footage took up about 11.6MB of stor­age space. In com­par­i­son, one sec­ond of 1080p footage used up only 2.2MB. Here’s a rough idea of how much stor­age space you will need to record 4K movies:

As you can see, record­ing in 4K will quickly use up your phone’s stor­age ca­pac­ity. As such, it is rec­om­mended you use a high ca­pac­ity mi­croSD card to store your movies. For­tu­nately, Sam­sung, Sony and LG’s 4K ca­pa­ble smart­phones all have mi­croSD card slots with sup­port up to 128GB ca­pac­ity. It’s also a good idea to in­vest in a high speed mem­ory card to en­sure your video is recorded smoothly with­out buffer­ing and slow­downs that can oc­cur with free or en­try-level mem­ory cards.
