In surprising news, the Galaxy Note III won’t sport optical image stabilization (OIS) because of production issues. This is actually pretty bad news since most of the high end phones such as the HTC One and the upcoming LG G2 have OIS. What does OIS do exactly? Since most people have a hard time holding their phone still when taking a shot, OIS is able to remove that shake and yield a better photo. It’s most important indoors or in lower lighting conditions.
Samsung plans on adding OIS in the Galaxy S 5, which is their more popular line, but the Note line is a pretty important device. Does this deter you from picking up the Note III?
