GCam vs Stock Poco Camera on Poco F5 Pro

The default Poco camera that comes on the phone and the Google Camera port has significant differences to consider which one to use! 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 Poco camera?

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

Just to tell you, the Poco camera is more or less similar as the MI camera.

Let’s have a look at the below features that is available on Poco F5 Pro’s default Poco Camera but not on GCam:

  • Pro mode that provides TRUE pro level features such as focus peaking, LOG profile, Exposure verification etc.
  • The 960 fps super slow motion
  • Access to all camera sensors
  • Voice shutter (only available on latest Poco Camera app)
  • Allows to capture in 64MP

Advantages on Google camera / GCam on Poco F5 Pro

People know the GCam app several years from now 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 Poco F5 Pro:

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

Disadvantages of GCam

  • Finding the right gcam port for Poco F5 Pro is neither a straight forward task nor easy
  • Not all compatible mods available are specifically tuned for the Poco F5 Pro. It is possible that some or other features of GCam might be working might not be working as intended.
  • The stock MIUI camera apps has a pro mode, which does not exist on Google Camera mod.
  • Stock MI camera has a 960 super slow motion which simply does not exist on Poco F5 Pro.
  • 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 Poco camera is bad. GCam provides better image quality, it has several features of its own which out performs the stock camera app.

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

Summarizing it all, GCam will not replace the Poco 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 Poco F5 Pro today and in future. This page will always list all the compatible Google Camera versions for the phone.
