The Mi A2 is a quite old mid ranger phone from price and hardware spec’s point of view.

It comes with a dual camera setup, with a primary camera of 20MP, and a 12MP secondary sensor.

Although the stock MIUI camera is a good piece of software but that can be further enhanced with a Google Camera mod.

In fact, there are few compatible GCam mods available for the phone which are brought to you by back.rider, the_dise, Parrot043.
