One of the best developments in the Android community in recent years has been Google Camera ports. The Google Pixel‘s picture-taking ability is spectacular, even though the camera hardware may be better on other devices. A lot of the Google Pixel’s photo magic comes from the Google Camera app. Features like HDR+ and portrait mode make the camera really shine. A vibrant community of developers and users has sprung up to bring these features to as many devices as possible.
There are a lot of Google Camera ports in our forums. If you’re a first-time user, it can be a little daunting to figure out which one will work for your device. A good place to start is to head into the forum for your device and look for any Google Camera threads. You’ll usually find a splattering of APKs from a bunch of different users. Some things work, some things don’t. It can be a bit messy. So we have created a “hub” for Google Camera ports for a variety of devices.
The Google Camera Port Hub is a centralized location where you can go to find a working port for your device. Currently, the hub has over 40 devices listed including the Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G7 ThinQ, Essential Phone, OnePlus 6, Xiaomi Mi 8, and many more. Each device has at least one port that should work for that device. It’s important to note that most Google Camera ports are not perfect. They all have their pros and cons. We tried to find the ports that have been endorsed by users on our forums. You may be able to find a better port on the forum for your device, but our hub is a good place to start.
Speaking of which, this is something that the community can help us grow and maintain. If there is a device that has a working Google Camera port but it’s not listed in our hub, let us know in the comments below! We’d also like to know if there is a better port available than one that is in the hub. You can share your findings in the comments below, or reach out to us on our contact form.
