Oppo’s Stock Camera app vs GCam on Oppo A12

The default camera that comes on the phone and the Google Camera port has significant differences to consider which one to use! To be able to take a wise decision on different occasions, I will list down all the similarities and/or differences between these two camera apps.

Let’s have a look at the below detailed section so that you can understand things in a better way.

What’s better on the Oppo camera?

Well, the default camera app that comes on the phone is equally good and provides several features that the GCam does not have.

Let’s have a look at the below features that is available on Oppo’s default Camera:

  • Pro mode on the Oppo camera app that provides pro level features such as manual ISO, shutter speed control etc.
  • Dual-view video allows to see both front and rear video at the same time. This is useful feature for vlogging.
  • Access to all camera sensors
  • Allows to capture in 13MP full resolution
  • Ultra macro mode allows you to capture closeup photos
  • You can add watermark to your videos

Advantages of installing Google camera / GCam APK on Oppo A12

People know the GCam app several years from now since when it had the HDR+. And then the camera app has evolved significantly.

Below are some of the extra features that you can expect to enhance your existing camera setup on the Oppo A12:

  • Night Sight mode that gets you better exposed images in low light.
  • Astrophotography mode used to capture the sky and celestial bodies in the dark. Not for everyone, but worth mentioning in this features list.
  • Multi-mode video stabilization
  • HDR+ captures a natural looking image in a condition where you have much brighter or darker regions in the scene.
  • DSLR like bokeh effect in the portrait mode.
  • RAW image capture so that it can be edited in the post

Disadvantages of GCam

  • Finding the right gcam port for Oppo A12 is neither a straight forward task nor easy
  • Not all compatible mods available are specifically tuned for the Oppo A12. It is possible that some or other features of GCam might be working might not be working as intended.
  • The stock camera apps has a pro mode, which does not exist on Google Camera mod.
  • Sometimes not all cameras available to use.
  • May require advanced settings to use the high resolution mode on the primary camera.


Of course GCam is good but that does not mean the Oppo’s camera software is bad. GCam provides better image quality, it has several features of its own which out performs the stock camera app.

But Oppo’s stock camera also has some good features which cannot be overlooked such as the Pro features, Vlogging features, and better hardware compatibility.

Summarizing it all, GCam will not replace the Oppo camera rather both the camera apps can be installed on the same phone and you can use each app for which it better suits to your needs.

New features and updates of the GCam APK are keep coming, hence there could be many versions of the GCam ports available for the Oppo A12 phone today and in future. This page will always list all the compatible Google Camera versions for the phone.
