In addition to the upgrade from Android 8 to Android 10, the new image stabilization is certainly one of the highlights in this release. This video illustrates the improvement quite well:


  • Movement detection
  • High degree of accuracy
  • Dynamic blur reduction
  • EVS (Electronic Video Stabilization)
  • Performs in low power modes
  • Shooting standard: 1080p at 30 FPS

And if you perhaps don’t find the new image stabilization too useful, you can also switch it off under > My Controls
