Default [Q] Camera Quality on the Note 3

Hello,

I'm coming from a Nexus 5 which was by no means an excellent camera but significantly better than the Note 3. I mean, this Note 3 camera is absolutely atrocious. Terrible quality, blurry, takes a long time to take the pic, etc. I've tinkered around with the settings, to no avail. Is there any sort of fix for the camera? Perhaps a replacement camera APK that performs semi-decently. As I said, the Nexus 5 wasn't great but even in HDR mode it's quicker than my Note 3 to take a shot, and the quality on the Note 3 is quite abominable. I'm running slim kat 4.4.2

Can you possibly send me a link? I searched 'lenovocamera' and didn't come up with anything in a Note 3 forum. Also, will a N9005 app work with my N900T? Thanks

I like Procapture better then stock camera app. It has alot more options then the stock app. There's also a free version as well.

Just a heads up, the lenovo app is a great camera but appears to drain the battery significantly. I added it to Greenify, so hopefully that fixes the problem.
