    dat one is cool by samsung but why they dont advertise their benchmark quality 120fps video recording to indian customers, as earlier lg also also came up with the same pproblem they also dont promote their that 120 fps……., this technology is not easily understandable by indian customers so try to promote it this will really make a boom…..
