You can install Google Camera on the A20 by following this procedure.

1. Boot into recovery and install the gcam enabler zip.

3. Investigate the features.

I set panorama to low resolution to make it faster.

The Photo Sphere and Panorama work very well.

You have to move the camera extremely slowly for the lens blur

The "create tiny planet" option looks interesting.
