    Can someone please explain to me what Optical Image Stabilization is in layman's terms and why I want/need it? All I do is take the occasional selfie and maybe some nature pics here and there. Just curious. What are the advantages in the real world?

    At a very high level, it allows for real-time stabilization of your photo shot. In essence, it reduces blurriness in pictures by compensating for shakiness while taking the picture. This is particularly noticeable when taking photos in low light.

    it compensates for your hand shaking or wind hitting your phone, etc... it will improve your pics overall but it won't make miracles ... other factors affect blurriness in pictures also

    It will allow your evening and dusk nature shots to come out better lit and less blurry. It won't help with your selfies as it's only on the camera on the back of the phone.

    I'm a fan of this. Someone our phone will have DSLR quality, they do now to a certain extent.
