Man! Bought the Smooth Q to use with my S7 edge Android. Where are all the nice features that come with the IOS version?! Please update this app for Android so I don't have to return this nice gimbal. Plus fix many of the features that currently do not work great, like the following/tracking mode and add the 4k video option. This is one of the main reasons I purchased this unit. Three stars in hopes they will update the app.
I just purchased a smooth 3. I did extensive research but obviously not enough. The device hasn't arrived yet but there is no 4k support? You don't understand the importance of this even if you don't upload the final video many will record in 4k then downsample to ensure the very best quality. Think about it this your flagship professional model and it doesn't support the highest resolution.
Only thing good from the app is the ability for fine tuning and control the smooth Q gimbal with 2nd phone/tablet. Missing the time lapse feature from android app is a big negative. Camera in app does not work when recording with Sony XZs. Right now I only use the gimbal and my phone camera. Could have been something awesome.
Using galaxy s7 edge. I'm having issues with real time battery display, shows 100% but blue light flashing shows battery around 25%. Bluetooth connection shows device connected however can't always pair or won't find device. Camera app needs alot of work to get 5 stars. On a positive note, the smooth q device works great with little practice, though it would be nice if it was water resistant and if you could charge your phone while in landscape mode.
Im using lg g6, there's no crash so far, but there are few quirks: *Focus tag mode doesn't really work all that well, it somehow tag invisible things and follow it around or just stay still. *More features such as in iphone, it is much more feature packed. *Battery doesn't change at all, its already been 3 days, but still 100%. *Calibration is quite confusing and tutorial is all in chinese. So yeah. Hopefully there will be further improvement as the gimbal is really good for its price.
The Q is a great gimbal at an unbeatable price. This app for Android really needs attention to bring it up to the iphone version The gimbal can be used with filmic pro or open camera or even the android native camera software. The only time i use this is to change settings and calibration. I hope that Zhiyun updates this soon but do not let that stop you from getting this great piece of kit.
