    In HDR mode, Google's Camera app captured beautiful pictures on my Nexus 5 but I'm finding it doesn't produce the same quality on the OPO. I tried reinstalling it a couple of times because I was amazed that the images it captured, whether Auto or HDR, weren't as good as the CM 11S Camera app that is pre-installed on the OPO. The biggest flaw was the focus. In Auto, Clear Image and HDR mode, the CM 11S consistently captured better quality images than Google's Camera app, Camera FV-5 and ProCapture 2.

    I'm finding that the Auto setting is great for quick shots and for more stationary subject matter Clear Image can produce some stupendous shots with smaller file sizes [than Auto].

    Any feedback on better third-party camera apps?

    Here's an image comparison chart from GSMArena as a side note.

    Secondary question; there seems to be no setting to silence the Camera app, either...? Thanks.

    I, too, found the OPO stock Camera app just awful.. Unacceptable as a matter of fact. I'm using Pro Capture quite happily now.

    Interesting, that was my number one 3rd party camera app. If it wasn't for the HDR+ setting on Google's Camera I'd have kept it on my Nexus 5.

ID:	135690Yes it does. Press the camera icon in the lower left. The next icon up is the video camera.

    May be Blasphemy, but if I want better HDR, or "Lens Blur", I use Google Camera. Everything else, I stick to the native CM camera.

    Potato, as caught pointing OnePlus to the night, moonlit sky with nearby street lamps and just capturing the image. Update; So as not to mislead, this is how the DNG looked when imported into Lightroom and exported as-is, this isn't the Camera app's post-processed JPG, which actually does look better than this but could not be improved from JPG form to what I was able to obtain below. Thank you for understanding.

    A few edits of the DNG/RAW data in Lightroom and exported. What I've done with other photos under better lighting conditions is amazing. The Camera app update with RAW support... not too dang shabby.

    Google Camera with HDR produces sub par images with your OPO because the HDR in the Google Camera is different from the HDR+ on the Nexus 5, a detailed explanation can be found here:

    I personally try to stick to using the stock camera app on any phone because it is usually the most optimised and results in the best images and fastest processing.
