OnePlus 7 Pro is now available via different online stores for purchase and the reviews of the device are pretty positive. Our own gaming and performance review of OnePlus 7 Pro reflects the result of the top-notch hardware that power the smartphone.
Sadly, OnePlus 7 Pro’s camera is a department where the smartphone lags behind the other flagships. I’m aware of the fact that 7 Pro costs considerably less than its competitors like Pixel 3, Galaxy S10+, and iPhone XS, but the camera shouldn’t be a factor that holds one back from buying this device. The company is expected to improve the performance a bit via software updates but that won’t solve the inherent issues with the camera.
This brings us to the Google Camera mods, commonly known as GCam mods, for different smartphones. These APK ports help the users realize the full potential of the camera hardware and get the benefit of Pixel’s amazing computational photography algorithms. The GCam ports also add features like Night Sight and Photobooth to non-Pixel smartphones.
Now, after the wait of a few weeks, the GCam port APK for OnePlus 7 Pro is here and we installed it on the units in our office. The results of this port are pretty amazing:
In the next few steps, I’m going to tell you how to get these results on your OnePlus.
