    I am using the movi cinema robot with my galaxy s9 and am dealing with an annoyance. I balance my phone prior to turning on the movi as required. But since the camera on my phone is located lower on my phone than on the iPhones, I end up seeing a lot of the gimbal motor in the frame of my shot. The only thing I can think would fix this is by shelling out the $$$ for the counterweight system so I can shift my phone further to the left away from the gimbal.

    Is anyone else using the GS9 and having the same problem? How were you able to resolve this?

    I didn't even realize they had compiled a table of compatibility. Thanks for that. Now with regards to my initial post on the price of the counterweight.. I did end up ordering one and I have to say, it is much higher quality that I was expecting. I thought the counterweight frame was just plastic before I got it in the mail. It is actually machined aluminum that is anodized black. Very high quality and it justifies the high price.
