Improve the Quality of Your Photos with Lenovo Super Camera
It’s no secret that the AOSP camera leaves a lot to be desired. Sony, for example, decided to give its users the ability to insert a dinosaur or a volcano into their photos. There are also many other alternatives, such as the famous Focal app by XDA Senior Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD. It’s also interesting to note that some less common device OEMs make a pretty decent camera application as well, which can compete with those released by HTC or Samsung.
One such OEM is Lenovo, which released a camera app known as Lenovo Super Camera. The name isn’t too original, but the functionality of application is. And now, it’s available to all users, thanks to XDA Senior Member a2441918.
The application uses an unnecessarily large set of permissions including direct calling, but the developer responsible for a port removed it and gave users a choice between two versions. The only disadvantage of this mod is a broken Panorama Mode, but the rest of features work just fine. The modified camera app should work without major issues on Android 4.3 and 4.4.
If you are disappointed in your camera application and find your photo quality not good enough, you should consider visiting the application thread and giving Lenovo Super Camera a shot.

Hi Locker can be found both on the Play store and...

Former XDA TV Producer Adam Outler offers up a must have application. In this video, XDA TV Producer...
