Whats this thread about?
I've created a table comparing multiple GCam ports so that I can choose the best one for me. Since a lot of people were asking me what version of Google Camera I was using, what functions work, what don't, etc, I decided to share with the forum and I will try to keep this table updated.

Safety WarningGoogle Camera Port: Safety Warning
• These files come from unofficial sources.
• People say these files are safe and I never had issues with them, but I cannot assure you they are safe.
• Use at your own risk. Don't blame me if something bad happens.
Is this port safe?
This is a Google Camera app modified by people like BSG, Arnova8G2, Ivanich, etc, and shared by them on forums like XDA Developers and 4PDA. It's based on the Google Camera app available through the Play Store for Nexus and Pixel users. Some developers take the original apk and do their own modifications (eg: BSG) and others try to improve the work from others (eg: Ivanich improving BSG's versions to work on the OnePlus 3).
It's up to you:
It's important to understand that these files don't come directly from Google. Modifications are done by people that could, if they wanted to, add malicious code. There are risks when installing apps from the internet. Download and install only if you understand the risks.

Front camera Portrait, HDR+ and other features have some random bugs in the Redmi Note 5 AI Global/CN. From my experience, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't and start saving black photos.

Suggested versions:
Pixel 2: Arnova's v8.3b1 .
Pixel 3: MGC_6.1.021_MI8_V2a+.apk and MGC_6.1.021_BSG_Arnova-based_v.1.3d_TlnNeun_2.apk .

Table Legend

FC = Force Close
P = Portrait
HDR = HDR+ Enchanced
NS = Night Sight
V = Video Recording
? = That the feature wasn't tested yet
FCHDR = Force close after taking a photo in HDR+Enchanced but it still saves the photo
FCNS = Force close after taking a photo in Night Sight but it still saves the photo
The best-performing versions are marked in bold
