is there any way to circumvent this so that we can use the potential of the camera?

Ask Samsung to provide source code for camera drivers, modify it to support RAW capture and then modify kernel to put it together.

In other words : no

I'm a bit new to all of this, as soon as I got the phone I was told to install the Google Camera, but didn't really bother as I was satisfied with the default one ( especially with the wide angle ) . But then I've stumbled across the post complaining about pictures quality, and I realised they were actually crap, I just don't have a proper phone to compare them with.
I was then wondering whether -
- a functioning google camera app would be better than the default one even without the HDR+
- the dark and creepy playstore market has maybe some app that really fixes the blurry pics issue which the phone suffers of.

I'm also on android 9 since yesterday and i've maaybe noticed an improvement already, but I'm not sure .

Try to use FOOD MODE and disable the blur circle, only this mode delivers images without strong noise reduction and with more saturated colors..

As said before, A7 has limited Camera2 API so gcam will not work with hdr+ only standard pictures which are as good/crap as on any camera app.
