So you're aware of the fact that slow motion video is recorded at lower resolution? It's not a pro grade camera, it's a cellphone. Use slow motion in well lit environments.

its by design. capturing 240 frames in 1 second limits the capability of the hardware to capture images in full detail and light, as well the artificial lights will flicker at certain frequencies which will clash with the 240fps video capture. even the latest iPhone has this flicker

All the people saying the lights flicker in slow motion first check out the ALTERNATING CURRENT basics. The alternating current works in a wave form. The electricity supplied to all your street lighting and everything you use is in AC. The AC current switches its polarity +-+-+-+... multiple times per second,that's your frequency(50hertz) of alternating current. On.off.on.off.on...... So when you capture the video in slow motion that's faster than the frequency of AC waves,it results in so called flicker in your videos. But this is not the case in your DC current light sources(there is no wave).

The sun's light output is not due to ALTERNATING CURRENT. Basic science101.
