Samsung Galaxy Camera App Ported to the Galaxy S 4

Samsung seems to be the only company right now that is producing and marketing a smart camera actually worth considering. Running Android Jelly Bean with TouchWiz and packing 16 MP, the Galaxy Camera is essentially an Android device with a really good camera. So why not port the camera, or at least the camera app, to the company’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S 4?

Well this is exactly what XDA Senior Member LastStandingDroid has done. Compatible with GS4s running the Google Edition firmware, LastStandingDroid has managed to get the core functions of the Galaxy Camera up and running, as well as a couple other features, such as:

  • Taking photos and videos
  • Flash
  • Auto-focus
  • Preview
  • Beauty Face
  • Slow and Fast Motion
  • Working with both front and back cameras

The port is still a work-in-progress. The rest of the Galaxy Camera’s features to be completed such as Best Face, Burst Shot, and Dual View, so the port may not be for everyone just yet. LastStandingDroid also acknowledges a bug where the boot animation will be disabled when the port is installed, an issue spawned from a Galaxy Camera-specific file. Installation is a piece of cake, requiring you to download the given zip file, flash it through custom recovery, and reboot.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
