[Discussion] GCam vs Xiaomi Cam apps (Mi 8)

I was curious what the bug fuzz was about the GCam everyone was talking about.  I decided to give the port a try - Xiaomi (10.3.2) stock cam app vs GCam V6.2.030

Let you be the Judges.

In the order of:
1) Xiaomi app - good light AI/HDR auto

2) GCam - good light normal cam settings

3) Xiaomi app - night shot of street (night mode)

4) GCam - night shot of street (night sight)

5) Xiaomi app - pitch black (night Mode)

6) GCam - pitch black (Night Sight)

GCam does take better shots, but it does have a few problems on the Mi 8:
- Can't use the telephoto lens
- Portrait mode can't do portraits of objects (just people)
- seems to drain batteries a little faster (from what I have read it continues to take burst of shots as soon as you open the app)
- portrait mode - shots are put into individual folders, so it's annoying to get to them.
- I find the portrait mode shots are not as accurate separating the subject from background - Xiaomi does this better.


Now a few good things for GCam:
- portrait mode uses the wide camera, which mean better for low light shots as the aperture for that lens is wider.
- portrait mode - you can adjust the background blur of your shots after the photo is taken
