    I really want to like my 6P, but I shoot a lot of video and the video quality on this is, well, it's not very good, unless you're standing perfectly still. If you're moving, the video looks like your watching through wavy cellophane. The same scene shot with another phone I own that has OIS is so much better. Really wonder why the decision was made to not include OIS on an otherwise stellar flagship model.

    Is there a difference when you shoot in 1080p versus 4K?

    Video recordings are terrible, in both 4K and 1080p. They look grainy and shaky, I actually ripped my antiglare screen off thinking that was the issue, no such luck. The 6P just shoots terrible video. Very disappointed.

    Unfortunately, no.

    It's kind of a shame because the picture quality is really great. Beats the crap out of my iPhone 6s Plus in just about every shot.

    But the video is just not good, it's really crisp and it looks fairly muddy even in decent light. I'm actually pissed about this one because I guess OIS would have played a major roll in fixing this, and it was present on the original 5, so I don't know what the hell they were thinking when they decided to take it out but put a better sensor in? Makes zero sense IMO

    Maybe they thought the better sensor would make up for lack of OIS? That's the only reason of which I can think. I'm afraid mine will be going back.

    Try ProShot camera app. I get pretty good videos with the stock app but the ProShot videos seem a little more stable. Maybe some different processing algorithm?? Also QuickPic to replace the Photos app

    I've noticed that videos aren't as stable as I'd like, but I wouldn't say they are horrible at all.

    The moto x pure edition has no ois and makes silky smooth video. It's a software thing so I think Google will be able to improve it with updates if they deem it necessary.

    Thanks. I'll give ProShot a try. Won't let QuickPic anywhere near my phone though.

    Is that right? I should clarify that if I'm perfectly still, the videos are fine. The issue comes with any kind of movement.

    It was purchased by Cheetah recently. And Cheetah is despicable.
