To everyone who searches for a camera app for their phone, I want to point out one thing and that is the stability factor.
The stock camera app on your phone might not be good, but at least it’s reliable enough to click a photo. I have been in that situation where I wanted to capture a precious moment and the third-party camera app crashed or did not save the photo.
So, before you install a good third-party camera app on your phone, know its downsides.
Best Camera Apps for Moto G5 Plus
Now that we have talked about the reliability factor, let us look at some of the best camera apps for Moto G5 Plus.
1. Open Camera by Mark Harman
Hands down the best camera app for Moto G5 Plus is Open Camera by Mark Harman. It is as good as it can get because it is an open-source app that is available in the Google Play Store. So, there should not be any privacy or security concerns.
With over 50M downloads and a 4.1 rating, it is according to me the best app for any compatible Android smartphone. With features like auto-level, level control, ISO, exposure, white balance, panorama view, shutter speed control, HDR capabilities, it is also a feature-rich app that will totally solve your photographic and video needs.
The best part is that the app is only 1.8MB in size when you are downloading it and with first-hand experience, I can assure you that it’s a very smooth app. However, do note that if you change the settings too much and it’s costing your phone a lot of processing power, then the app might feel buggy and sluggish.
In that case, frequent crashes are common. But don’t worry, it only happens with very old phones or low-end devices. Now, if you know a lot about photographic terms then this app will be the best for you because you can tinker with a lot of settings.
But it has so many options that a beginner might get confused. I would highly recommend that you try this app once.
2. G-Cam Mod
Now if you are an absolute beginner who wants the best picture quality without tinkering with a lot of settings, then this might be the best alternative to your stock camera app.
Google is known for their software and algorithms and this is very much evident from its camera app. But this camera app is officially available for only Pixel devices. But fortunately, folks at XDA have been able to port this app and made this available for other devices.
There is actually a very active community for this app. So, simply by using this app, you can significantly increase the picture and video quality of your existing smartphone. The app is very simple to use and is just like a normal camera app.
However, it might not be stable. In order to get the best app, you need to do a fair bit of research and try out the app that suits your device the best.
Also, do note that this app requires the Camera2API to be enabled on your device. If your device manufacturer did not enable that, then you will have to use old versions of that app. Else, you can enable that with the help of a PC.
3. Manual Camera
If you want to turn your phone’s camera into a professional one, then Manual Camera by Lenses Inc is one of the best apps. It has all the premium features in a smooth and well-built app, but it comes with a cost.
The app is a paid app but it also has a lite version, so you can try that before you actually try the paid app. But the app will only work if you have Android version 5.0+ and Camera2API enabled. To check this, you can try out their free app here.
There you go, the best camera apps for your Moto G5 Plus. All the apps are good and ultimately it’s your choice to go with any one of the mentioned.
