These are mid range phones with decent hardware spec out of which the A52 4G model has a Snapdragon 720G and the A52 5G has a Snapdragon 750G chipset.

It comes with a quad camera setup, out of which the primary camera is 64, an 12MP ultrawide, a 5MP macro and a 5MP depth shooter.

Stock One UI Camera vs GCam on Galaxy A52 / 5G

The default One UI camera that comes on the phone and the Google Camera port has significant differences to consider which one to use and where! To be able to take a wise decision on different occasions, I will list down all the similarities and/or differences between these two camera apps.

Let’s have a look at the below detailed section so that you can understand things in a better way.

What’s better on the One UI camera?

Well, the default camera app that comes on the phone is equally good and provides several features that the GCam does not have.

Let’s have a look at the below features that is available on Galaxy A52 / 5G One UI Camera:

  • Pro mode on the the stock One UI camera app is available for both photo and video modes. This provides common controls such as Shutter speed, ISO control etc. but not like the way the TRUE pro level features that comes on MIUI camera.
  • Super slow-motion and Hyperlapse feature
  • Better compatibility with all camera sensors
  • Allows to capture in highest resolution each sensor supports such as 50MP.
  • Bixby vision does a screen analysis and provides useful information.

Advantages of using Google camera / GCam on Galaxy A52 / 5G

People know the GCam app from couple of years since when it had the HDR+. And then the camera app has evolved significantly.

Below are some of the extra features that you can expect to enhance your existing camera setup on the Galaxy A52:

  • With Night Sight mode you get better exposed low light images from the camera.
  • Astrophotography mode used to capture the sky and celestial bodies in the dark. Not for everyone, but worth mentioning in thia features list.
  • Multi-mode video stabilization
  • HDR+ brings much images in a condition where you have much brighter or darker regions in the scene.
  • DSLR like bokeh effect with GCam’s portrait mode.
  • RAW image capture so that it can be edited in the post
  • GCam in most cases captures natural looking pictures

Disadvantages of GCam

  • Finding the right gcam port for Galaxy A52 / 5G is neither a straight forward task nor easy
  • Not all compatible mods available are specifically tuned for the Galaxy A52. It is possible that some or other features of GCam might be working might not be working as intended.
  • The stock One UI camera app has a pro mode for photo as well as video which does not exist on Google Camera mod.
  • Sometimes not all cameras available to use.
  • May require advanced settings to use the high resolution mode on the primary camera.

Conclusion

Of course GCam is good but that does not mean the One UI camera is bad. GCam provides better image quality, it has several features of its own which out performs the stock camera app.

But Samsung’s stock camera also has some good features which cannot be overlooked such as the Pro features, better hardware compatibility etc.

Summarizing it all, GCam will not replace the One UI camera rather both the camera apps can be installed on the same phone and you can use each app for which it better suits to your needs.

New features and updates of the GCam APK keep coming, hence there could be many versions of the GCam ports available for the Galaxy A52 today and in future. This page will always list all the compatible Google Camera versions for the phone.
