From this post, you can download the latest Google Camera Port for OnePlus 6 and 6T and install it. Installing GCam Port on your OnePlus device will allow you to use Pixel camera app features like NightSight, HDR+, Playground (AR Stickers), and more for an overall better camera experience.
At the time of its release, OnePlus 6, as well as the OnePlus 6T, were well and truly among the best mobile devices in their segment. The critics and users were all heaps and praises for these two smartphones. Powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset, with an octa-core processor and up to 8 GB of RAM, one could hardly ask for anything more. Add to the fact that it has Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, it surely ticked all the boxes.
Coming to the camera department, it surely gave a tough time to the biggest player in this segment (aka Pixel devices). Having a dual rear camera with f/1.7 aperture, it is capable of recording videos at 2160p at 30 and 60 fps. The front camera too is an impressive 16MP with amazing features like Auto-HDR and Gyro Electron-Image-Stabilization.
However, some users still feel that stock OnePlus camera features like the NightScape and Slow Motion are not as finely tuned as they should have been. Also, there are opinions that the stock camera could have incorporated some additional features as well. This includes a Motion Auto Focus, ‘Pro-Mode’ and ‘Manual Focus’ for video recording and ‘Timelapse’.
So, if your opinions are also in sync with them, then look no further. Just download and install the latest Google Camera Port for the OnePlus 6/6T from below.
