I bought this last time it was $20. I wish I hadn't. A two axis gimbal is completely useless. You'll never really be in a situation where you'd only need stabilization on two axis. It just doesn't work well. The motor is way too weak for my iPhone 12 Pro. I thought it
Ugh this not be a good gimbal at $20 but I figure I could use it as a tripod or selfie stick at least. Nope. The thing has to be on and powered otherwise your phone just flops on it like a dead fish. Worse yet is it requires you to download an app to use it. So yeah..wish I hadn't bought this piece of junk. It also didn't hold my phone very well with a case on it. I might be able to get it to work if I tried a bit harder but I just don't think it would work really well if I got it working exactly as it should. I would pass.
I have the Q3…. Get a better gimbal. It doesn't give you up and down stabilization. And it really struggles with your typical smart phone size unless your rocking an iPhone 13 mini or something
The Smooth X is a 2-axis gimbals whereas the Smooth Q3 is a 3-axis gimbals.

If you walk and film, you'd want the Smooth Q3.

Otherwise, you'll noticed a noticeable bounce with each step you take in the Smooth X. If you're okay with filming from a static location, the Smooth X would work.

However, be wary that older gimbals might not be able to support the weight and size of newer devices. In one Q&A, the vendor said it was best suited for the iPhone 11.

Reviews seem positive, but multiple mention getting it for 20 or 24, so this might be a semi regular sale price.

Are these things dust collectors or actually quite useful?

Depends on your lifestyle, but at the very least small tripods are pretty useful on trips. Buying this after watching a couple YouTube videos on it since it seems like it can help step up the vacation footage game.

So what's the main difference between the Smooth and Q3? How can a gimbal actually sell for $19?

Isn't the whole point of a gimbal is to shoot while moving or walking? How would a 2 axis gimbal be helpful?

iPhone 14 users could benefit from the more affordable Smooth X combined with iOS camera's 'Action Mode'

I'll take it if you're just gonna chuck it! I regularly open up and find the exact pouch cell used (or hack in external USB bank) for imported goods that don't have replaceable batteries. Only problem is waiting for shipping from China..
