There are a few things you are missing, and a few more you just aren't fully appreciating how much of a difference the things you mentioned make. First, the S6 sensor is not over 1/2 inch, it is 1/2.6 inch, which is substantially smaller than a 1/2 inch sensor, particularly since sensors are measured diagonally. Second, lenses matter a lot more than the ...

FFMpeg's vid.stab filter works well. You have to run it as a 2-pass process: detect, and then stabilize. If you're going to do more with the video later, after stabilizing, output to a lossless format and then point your other tools at that.
