I have the Osmo Mobile 2 and this is a much better design. On the mobile 2 with both samsung S7 and S9 the gimbal arm can sometimes be seen in the frame since the cameras on these phones are placed more centrally instead of in one corner.

App makes the difference. The only reason I use the zhiyun app as opposed to the default camera app is the record button and controls on the stick itself, just easier if it's all one hand operation. The app also allows calibration and adjustments, except it's pretty hard to navigate.

When I bought mine, DJI was $170 but if it's just $110, it's a must buy!

shame the $88 used is sold, I wouldn't have minded one at that price.

I bought used acceptable before and they there pretty much like new even though the description says "large mark on top, or side of device"

On trips cannot see myself carrying this, hauling this big sucker out and trying to attach my 1K phone to shoot vids or pics.. Just way too big and awkward to use this in any quick in a hurry shooting scene. Maybe if you were at a wedding or some slow mundane event, yeah. Hooking the phone up is not quick task, getting proper balance, etc. Can see myself in a crowded place getting this knocked off my hand and bye bye phone.. way too nerdy looking too carrying this around.

The DJI pocket something should be much better for quick discreet shots...
Yes a gimbal camera would work well for travelling, something like FIMI Palm is better than Osmo pocket:

Are there any 3rd party apps that are less sketchy, but will do the same thing?

LOL. nope. I don't need a gimbal for $109. I don't even need it for $50. It's a "nice to have", so if/when I get one, it will be cheap.

This is good to know. I've never bought anything used in my life. But maybe I should start trying that. Is there any catch from buying used one from Amazon? Does Amazon do QA on the product before selling them?

The difference between a cheap gimbal and a good gimbal worth the frustration saved. Even if it's just for fun, and nice to have. I rather have something functional that works 100% every time all the time, than a $50 paper weight that will never get used.

The catch is that amazon says used items don't have warranty, but i've heard that some manufactures do honour it still. I don't have personal experience but I don't hesitate to buy used from amazon.
Be a nice person and enjoy life
