When it comes to talking about the best cameras on the smartphone the Google pixel is undoubtedly the best.
Even with their single camera manual for the rear, the pixel cameras are far better at producing pictures then the flagship smartphones having a dual camera setup.
This is because the magic is in this software, not hardware.
What if you can get the Google camera working on your Android phone? Will the software do its magic?
Apparently, it does, a developer has already ported out the Pixel camera for other smartphones. In fact, it has become so popular that there is a dedicated thread on XDA forum, named as Google Camera port hub where all the ported version of Google Camera for different smartphones are available.
You can go to that read and find out if it’s available for you are smartphone or not.
I have successfully installed and used the Google camera port on different smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Redmi 4, Redmi Note 4 and Xiaomi Poco F1.
While the Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4 needed to be rooted to enable the Camera2 API module, the Google Camera port was installed on Samsung Galaxy S6 Ege and Poco F1 without any root since the Camera2 API is already enabled on these smartphones.
Apparently, it is enabled on all the smartphones that are power smartphones by the Snapdragon 800 series.
You can find more information such as installation information or any type of user guide on the Google Camera Port Hub thread.
As Google pixel 3 has already launched in the pot for its camera is also available for the selected number of phones.
I am using the Google pixel 3 camera port on my Poco F1 Smartphone and all this features such as the Portrait mode, Google lens, photo share, AR Stickers SIM to work perfectly fine.
The most recent feature from the Pixel 3 Camera called Night Sight is also ported for other Pixel (Pixel 1 and Pixel 2, and both their XL phones) and it will soon be available for another smartphone Thursday.
