I want to like it more but...First off it has gotten much better than it was. The app is usually pretty snappy.... sometimes it hangs....but way too often it freezes my entire phone and I have to reset it. I love the phone..just wish Essential could make this work better with their own phones.
The newest update that added auto HDR and shutter speed has made this camera quite usable and no longer a major strike against the phone. It still is not a perfect camera app in quality or interface when compared to other flagship smartphones but it's not your top priority in a phone, there app is good enough.
well, it isnt the best or the worst. it has gotten SO much better. still lags sometimes and pictures dont actually take sometimes. but the quality has improved dramatically since last two updated
Sometimes the capture button/volume button to take picture just does not register. This is 100% unacceptable and frustrating. Google hdr + app is still by far the best option. This is bad
It's amazing to see how this app keeps getting better and better. Photo review finally works and it's so much snappier than before. HDR is really good now. New auto mode is brilliant. Especially the indicator is ingenious. 360 videos are really cool. I'd love to see a Android Wear remote. A few more manual controls. But this app is almost there. And again: the updates and feature improvements are just incredible.
I got this phone a couple of days ago. The camera blew me away with the clarity of the images. After the recent update, when I try to take pictures an error message pops up saying it is not working. Try restarting your phone. I tried restarting my phone but I keep getting the same message. However, there are no issues in selfie mode. Anyone with any clues why this is happening?
