    Why not use an adapter for audio? I have a Pixel XL 2 and I use the Rode Video Micro paired with Open Camera.

    Best app to use for the Osmo Mobile 2 is the Filmic Pro App. Its perfect and has dedicated settings for the Osmo. Costs £14.99 in the UK, not sure about the US.

    I've had issues with drift. Has anyone else? Also, when I tried to use it while doing a facebook live video the video and audio got really out of sync.

    Pro Tip: Don't slide it all the way to the bottom as that will cover your mic and muffle your audio.

    Yeah if you dropped it the gimbal would be fine, your $1,000 phone would be TOAST! Good review though…

    Just use Filmic Pro instead of the regular camera and the dji app. There’s a lot more features and is totally worth it.

    I'm using a note 8, DJI go updated 4/17, and can record 4k video as the DJI go app let's me select but any time lapse, motion lapse or hyper lapse records in 1080p. This must be an Android/Samsung issue. The documentation said Android support is being worked on. Can anyone confirm?

    To eliminate the 'bounce' you need to practice the gimbal ninja walk. Overall, not much different using Android, use a combination of the default camera app, DJI Go and Filmic Pro. Slow motion at 240fps works really well. Motion time lapse are superb.

    1. Get a L-shape extension and adjust the counter-balance
    2. Use Filmic Pro

    FiLMiC Pro is the best way to capture video, including 4K, with the osmo mobile 2 and iPhone X. This app also plays nicely with OIS for smooth video, and it lets you switch to the telephoto lens.
    I was able to attach a bracket to my OM2 to mount an external mic. To plug it in, just slide the phone so that you have enough room to plug in. Be sure to adjust the OM2 so it balances before turning it on. And if you’re wearing Bluetooth headphones, you can instantly hear how your mic is picking up sound. Hope that helps!

    One hack you can use for audio is to use Apple’s iPods. Nothing connected to the phone, and in your case they’re completely hidden.

    I got the original one and it’s difficult to connect to any phone, Samsung or Apple and only works when it wants to. It randomly shuts down or the screen goes monochromatic and freezes. I wouldn’t buy from them again. Thanks for the review

    Thanks for watching! Let me know what you think if you've been using the Osmo or thinking of getting one (plus any clever hack for the iPhone X audio issue) 😂

    You'd be able to plug in a mic if your phone had a headphone jack XD I own one if those and use and external mic with my note 8 ☺
