And trust me on this, because I have tested almost all the major smartphones including the new ones.

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.
