Simplest way to do an image registration

Hello, I'm literally losing my mind to find a solution to my problem: I've an Android App which shots two images on a small delta time. Now even if this delta is very small images are always a bit shifted (around 20/30px). My question is simple, I want just know how many pixel they shifted, nothing more. I think that OpenCV is the better solution since I'm not able to understand how SURF keypoint detection implementation works, but I getting many troubles to implement this in my Android App. Please could someone tell me the right way to do this? maybe even with a small piece of code (in pure Java or android native C)?

This is what I've now (looking around some tutorials) but I really don't know how move forward.

Thank you
