Realme Stock Camera vs GCam port on Realme P1

Realme’s default camera that comes on the phone and the Google Camera (GCam) port has significant differences to consider which one to use and where! To be able to take a wise decision on different situations, 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 Realme 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 Realme P1’s default Camera:

  • Pro mode on the the stock Realme camera app is available for photo and Night mode but not available for video.
    • This provides common controls such as Shutter speed, ISO control etc. but not like the way the TRUE pro level features that comes on MIUI camera.
  • Ultra Res photo mode (only on supported phones)
  • Allows to capture in highest resolution each sensor supports such as 50MP
  • Better compatibility with all camera sensors
  • Macro mode allows to capture close-up photos
  • The filter mode allows to apply filters so that you can create artificial good looking images
  • Some supported models has the RAW capture similar to GCam port

People know the GCam app from couple of years 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 Realme P1:

  • With Night Sight mode you get better exposed low light images from the camera.
  • Astrophotography mode used to capture the sky and celestial bodies in the dark. Not for everyone, but worth mentioning in thia features list.
  • Multi-mode video stabilization
