So all you need to do is download snapcamera or camera fv-5 and enable camera api2 bcoz the stock camera not yet got the option to shoot RAW but the API2 is there.

Thanks stevecer1 to offer a .DNG sample on his T-mo S6 5.1.1 and you can open it in Lightroom or Photo Mate R2(Android app for RAW). Can't wait for 5.1.1 to arrive on my S6 now.

Sorry to piss on your parade but its a base feature of the OS so all you have done is installed an app that can work with the API already in Android. Wake me up when Samsung enables it directly in their own camera app so we can make full use of the Hardware as intended and properly calibrated to the sensor.

I think you got some misunderstanding concept here. It is not a must bcoz Lollipop supports full(api2), limited(api2) and legacy mode(api1). Our 5.0.2 currently is running on limited without RAW function. Some other phones like Note4, Sony Z3 probably is still running with old driver mode.

There are examples where a third-party camera app produces much better quality than Samsung's own app. Like this, this and this on the Note 4.

Why not use a real camera if you want quality photos?

So better get a camera even though the phone may be able to produce decent photos?
Is it not the point with a converged device like a smartphone that you don't need to carry all those extra things?

Your phone camera will never achieve dslr camera quality.

I don't care.
I want the best quality out of the hardware that my smartphone has. Even if I would own a DSLR, I wouldn't take it with me all the time, because it's heavy, bulky...

What's the old adage? "The best camera is the one you have with you."

No one should expect DSLR quality photos from their smartphone (yet), but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the new RAW capture abilities. Sometimes I'm out with friends or driving somewhere and I catch a nice sunset or a perfect cityscape shot. I wasn't out with the intent to shoot so I don't have my camera with me. Well guess what—I can still get a (potentially) nice shot now, because my phone can capture RAW images for me to tinker with later.
