    A few weeks back the Stock Google Camera was ported to devices with a Snapdragon 835 processor. The ported app was also working with Snapdragon 820 and 821 devices. This brings HDR+ to these devices which drastically improved dynamic range on photos taken with my Galaxy S8. This meant there was more detail in the shadowy areas. Some low light situations turned out better with Google's camera as well.

    The ported camera is now compatible with many more devices including those devices with Snapdragon 4xx or 6xx processors. Some are reporting that it works with some Xiaomi devices including the Redmi Note 3, and Redmi Note 4. The latest version also includes lots of bug fixes and a zero shutter lag fix. You can grab the updated camera from the link below.

    I can't tell which is better. There's a difference though. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Top image is better, bottom one is more washed out colors. Look on the bottom of the mouse pad where green and white lines curve.

    I agree, the bottom is a bit washed out but the background is a little clearer.

    Sorry if I misunderstood what you were explaining, but are you talking about an app that improves camera quality?

    How could a computer's software make the hardware better? Isn't this impossible?
