Google Edition Camera


Android Enthusiast
This is a touchy subject for me. On 4.0.4 the Google camera trashed my phone. However, on 4.1.2 it works perfectly and may have a little better image quality than the stock camera - purely a subjective claim and not open to debate.

Give it a try for yourself, don't just take my word for it.

The jelly bean camera works better on my 412, the stock camera doesn't even attempt to focus, while the new one tries. But I have a defective camera on my certified like new device
I believe it is tied to some other apk that I have messed with. As I was going through TB debloating and making some system apk s user apk s, the camera uninstalled itself on me. When I try to restore it using a backup TB just hangs on the process. I know its not an isolated incident because the previous phone I had did the same thing. I figured it out afterwards by double tapping the camera button on the lock screen and the phone automatically goes into reboot...

Thanks for your help
