    The folks over at PhoneArena created a cool comparison video to show off the capabilities of the Nexus 5 Optical Image Stabilization video camera capabilities. They basically filmed the same scene using the Nexus 4 (which doesn't have OIS) and the Nexus 5 (which does). Despite the obvious smoother image quality of the Nexus 5, it's interesting to note that the picture on the Nexus 5 is a bit darker and is perhaps more "true-to-life." The color is richer on the Nexus 5 and the image on the nexus 4 seems overly bright.

    It's also interesting to note that the OIS on the Nexus 5 is not as advanced as it could be. For example, it only uses a 2-axis stabilization function, versus the 3-axis stabilization found in the Nokia Lumia 920. Here's a quote with the full description of the OIS in the Nexus 5 and how it compares to other competing standards,

    Share what you think of this feature in the new Nexus 5.

    Its not perfect but better. I like the fact that the audio is better and the colors seem to be truer.
