    Are there any amateur or pro photographers out there who have used any of these 2 apps to enhance your phones camera capabilities?

    If so which out of these 2 give the most control, and how?

    Manual Camera app vs Camera FV-5 app?

    I've tried both, they both do give results similar to a DSLR.

    HOWEVER - there's a GOTCHA.

    Both apps will only do whatever is allowed by the actual camera on the phone. I cannot get manual focus with a Motorola X Pure. The default camera doesn't support it.

    The default camera app, in manual mode, on my ATT LG G4 gives me control over:
    shutter speed
    ISO
    flash
    focus point auto-focus
    manual focus
    white balance
    auto-exposure compensation
    auto-exposure lock
    file format (8-bit jpg or 10-bit dng)

    As Zuben points out, what you can do is dependent on your hardware and what the default software is.

    Thanks for the answers.

    The G4 is one hell of a great phone. I'm a fan of HTC and Sony myself, but the LG has definitely won me over with it's exceptional camera abilities. I'm looking at buying a new phone atm, and all those 3 brands are on the top of my list.
