RECORDING FOR MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES WITH A SONY XPERIA Z2
If you own a Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone however, there’s actually a way to get longer 4K videos. While 4K video on Samsung and LG’s smartphones is strictly limited to five minutes, which is determined by the app itself, Sony’s camera app doesn’t have a fixed time limit, and only shuts down when the CPU temperature reaches a certain point.
With the help of some external cooling this means that you can actually go over the five minute mark. If you’re recording indoors, try setting the air con to the lowest possible setting, while outdoors a portable fan might give you a few extra minutes of recording. Of course, the easiest solution is to take advantage of the Xperia Z2’s IP58 waterproof rating and submerge the phone in a bag of ice/cold water - all except for the camera lens of course.
