I'm trying to see I can remember ever disagreeing with a post as much as this one....I'm having a tough time seeing the upside to using GCam ports on Samsung flagship models given the enhanced capabilities of stock options when you include Camera Assistant Good Lock module and Expert Raw. While Samsung's camera may lack the customization approach that GCam brings, GCam is still too hit or miss with it's features to be considered the better choice. Samsung has come a long way with their camera..
I was at the zoo yesterday and I wanted so badly to believe GCam was worth it so I tried every camera in this thread vs stock hoping one would stand out and my conclusion after weeks of testing and a round robin test of all yesterday, is that Samsung Camera is the most reliable option. GCam can arguably take some very good pictures depending on the port/config/etc but there isn't one that can take good pictures with any lens in any condition.. Samsung takes good pictures in any situation.
Conclusion, given Samsung's recent enhancements to their stock camera options vs GCams, Using GCam on flagship models is more of a hobby than anything. The image comparisons you see are usually the best image that GCam port can take, switch up lens or lighting and it's doubtful you'll have similar quality.
I'm sure everybody has a different opinion, that's just mine on why it's unnecessary on S22 Ultra. It might be more useful on models that don't have as many options available or especially older phones.
Nope. Can't think of any.
