Cropped pictures are useless in this case - to be able to compare properly both of the original files (full resolution, unedited) are needed.

True. One of the things that I was excited about was the promise of better quality images. For myself, if the overall image quality hasn't improved it's not worth the time twiddling with the settings. If I'm going to spend time on a photo I will use a SLR.

The quality improvement in 645 PRO is something to write home about. If any Android app was able to achieve that improvement I'd pay quite a bit more for it.

Spot/center weighted metering on the touch to focus point would be awesome. Can't think of how many photos have come out poorly because the sky killed the exposure on the subject. Trying to fight that with exposure compensation is a pain.

They're crops, and otherwise not edited. They're not resized. What you see is representative of the rest of the image. Believe me, you're not missing anything.

.
Shot Control has touch metering, meaning you can set a different point in the frame for spot metering and a different point for the touch focus.

Haven't fiddled with this one yet to look for features like this.

What were your settings on the test pics? All auto for both? That may explain why there's not much difference between the two.

Haven't tried Shot Control, but I've tried the lite version of this app. Not too many options in the lite version, though.

DONATE TO ME
I am assuming that this app just modifies the image after taking the shots depending on what parameters you have set. I don't think Android provides APIs for all that. For e.g.: I don't think Android has a API that allows changing the Shutter Speed!
