    I've only had a couple days to play with my new Max and I like everything about it except....the camera. It may take fine photos but compared to my old samsung galaxy s3 the camera app sucks. There seems to be no way to control resolution, iso or anything else for that matter. Is there an app. that will help with making basic camera adjustments?

    There's nothing you can do physically to make the camera better. Thom suggested a great looking app that will allow you to use some great photo editing features and it looks quite nice. I use a similar one that is free called Camera MX which offers live effects, overlays and photo editing tools. They also have a cloud storage which you can sign up for (though I believe that's where they'll ask you for money).

    This is probably the worse camera I have had on any smartphonei have had. Basically you have no camera settings at all. I don't even think there is a timer.

    To get to the settings ... with the camera active ... swipe right ... a curved menu appears, One of the items shows you how to focus.

    I'm talking about real camera settings such as these that were on my galaxy s3
    Scene mode
    Auto Contrast
    Exposure Compensation
    White Balance
    Focus Mode
    Metering Mode

    The only decent settings are to to turn on "control focus and exposure", which will put a focus/white balance control on the screen that you can drag to the place in the view that you want to be used for focus/white balance. You can also toggle HDR mode on, off and auto. Otherwise, the stock camera app works just the way a super-majority of people want a phone camera app to work - point and shoot.

    The Google Camera app allows manual exposure control, self-timer, and changes to resolution. There are plenty of other camera apps in the Play Store as well.

    Try Focal (Beta). It will give you dSLR like settings for your phone.
