Google Pixel devices are known for their brilliant camera which is known as Google Camera or GCam or Pixel Camera. I have used the Pixel devices for very long and even the have the Pixel 3Xl with me and I am easily blown away by the Google camera quality and performance that device has to offer. Yes, there are other $1000 smartphones like those of Samsung’s, Huawei’s, OnePlus’s but, none of them can beat or even come close to the camera performance that you can witness on the Google Camera. Moreover, with just a single camera lens, the Pixel devices are so brilliant that it can put to shame the other smartphones with a triple camera set-up.
You might have heard about this a million times that a smartphone with a good camera is always better. However, in reality on a smartphone with such a smaller size of sensor for the camera, it is the processor that can do wonders. The same is in the case with the Pixel Camera on the Google Pixel devices. The software and image processing of Google Camera is so brilliant that till now I, including millions of other smartphone users have not seen a better camera than the one we have on the Pixel devices.
As evident from the fact that developers had a rush to port this Google camera for other smartphones, it was successfully done and now there is almost every Android smartphone that has a Google Camera Port or the GCam as they say. In my opinion, the GCam port on other Android smartphones clearly gives you the fact that your smartphone is capable of capturing more details, more colors, and better images than what your stock camera can take. Moreover, in this post, we will talk about how to download GCam for Nokia 7 Plus and 7.1 with the new Night Sight feature. So, without any further ado, let us get straight into the article itself;
What is Google Camera Port APK?
As mentioned above, Google Camera Port use the software processing capabilities of your smartphone to the next level and help you produce better image and photos that your stock camera app cannot produce. Moreover, let me bring this to the table that at least 8 out of 10 times or 9 out of 10 times I have seen the images produced by the GCam Port is better than the images produced by the Stock Camera of the mobile phone. And trust me on this, because I have tested almost all the major smartphones including the new ones. One interesting fact is that I also have lost track of when did I use the Stock Camera on my smartphone since the time I have ported the GCam app for my smartphone.
Now, this is the specialty of Google Camera port APK. Moreover, with the GCam port, you will experience stable performance. Yes, there might be some bugs and glitches you might face from the app but, with updates that are tweaked. You get features like Google Lens, AR Stickers, Night Sight, Portrait, Image Stabilization, RAW Image Files, Slow Motion, HDR+ Enhanced Mode, and more. Besides, as mentioned earlier, all these features offer great output than any other camera app due to Google’s powerful software processing. Your device does not need to have a dual or triple camera lens for taking clear and crisp images or videos. Even if you have a single and lower pixels camera lens, the Google Camera will do the rest.
What is the Night Sight Feature?
Google Camera is itself a nice clean, and minimal camera port for all the other Android Smartphones. But, with the new update, it has brought along the new Night Sight Feature for the Nokia 7 Plus and 7.1. Moreover, with the Night Sight feature, you can take a great quality night and dark environment images. You will see a great amount of difference between your stock camera app and the GCam port app. The Night Sight Feature is just like the night mode we used to have on our mobile phone long back. This lets the light to enter for more time and in turn, produces great quality night images. However, you need to be stable while taking the images with Night Sight feature enabled.
