Hey Guys!

After trying many Google Camera ports and playing with the settings I found 1 which is pretty stable, so far everything seems to work (if not please respond and I'll update the OP).

How to install and apply my settings :

Download the app from here (Not my port, credits to the original Dev) :

Better version, quality improves but slower with starting the camera. Faster processing!

Old version, slow at processing. But starts much faster (2sec difference)

Download my config.xml (New config from 10 March) :

config for the new version (11March)

Config for the old version (10March)

After downloading both files do this :

1. Install the GCam port (like a normal apk, no root or anything is needed)
2. Copy the config.xml to /Internal Storage/GCam/Configs (if this folders don't exist, you should create them yourself)
3. Open GCam and allow the permissions
4. Double tap somewhere in the down (next to the shutter button
5. Now a menu should popup asking you for a config
6. Press restore
7. Enjoy your GCam!

Share your pictures in this thread

When I'll have time I'll add pictures (comparing stock with GCam)

Good job.

I'm glad I helped

If you can PM me some pictures (Stock vs. GCam), I'd wanna include some in the OP to show people that the quality really improves.

In my eyes :

GCam gives richer colors and less noise (especially in low light situations)

Thanks already!

Yes, Night sight is working!

Here's a example of how Night sight works with GCam vs Stock Moto camera.

Stock got the watermark in the left down corner
GCam doesn't have any watermark

Both were without flash

Pretty impressive!

Is there any way I can control the shutter speed in gcam? I shoot a lot of sports and I would love if I get sharp photos with moving objects.

I haven't seen an option like this in GCam
