Improve Photos on LG G2 Photos with Jishnu’s Camera Mod

The flagship LG G2 was released not too long ago. Powerful hardware—almost identical to its younger sibling, the Google Nexus 5—places G2 in the top league of Android devices. But while the G2 packs great camera hardware, the stock camera software is a bit less than ideal.

A camera mod released by XDA Recognized Contributor Jishnu Sur™ improves the photo quality significantly. For example, the stock camera app shoots video at 14 FPS in low light, which results in a choppy picture. After the mod, the framerate is back at 30.

Increased low light video FPS is just one of the many improvements. A detailed technical changelog is available in the thread. With this mod, the G2’s camera works like it should have from the beginning. Of course, it’s possible to revert back to stock camera application. Jishnu Sur™ was kind enough to provide a flashable zip that restores the original app.

If you own the LG G2 (and possibly LG G Flex), head over to the mod thread and give the enhanced camera a shot.
