As you know, there are three models in the range: Standard Edition, Samsung Galaxy S22 + and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.


The triple camera on the back comes with a 50MP main shooter. The latter has an aperture of f / 1.8 and supports OIS. The second sensor has a resolution of 10 megapixels and supports not only OIS, but also 3x optical zoom. Finally, the third camera is 12 MP CMOS with f / 2.2 aperture and supports the Super Steady video function. Due to such a combination of lenses and software, the phone can record 8K videos at 24 frames per second. At DXoMark, your score is 126 points.

The Ultra version comes with improved specifications such as a 108MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, OIS, and laser autofocus. Also, this is a four-camera system. There is a 10MP telephoto lens that supports OIS and 10x optical zoom, a 10MP telephoto lens that supports OIS and 3x optical zoom, and a 12MP ultrawide lens that supports Super Steady video function. In addition, there is a 3D sensor for the time of flight.

It seems that these improvements will help the phone to get a much higher rank than the previous two models. Unfortunately, its test score is 131. That’s why it ranks 15th.

GCAM app

Well, if you are a fan of Samsung but are not satisfied with what the latest generation Samsung Galaxy S22 offers in the camera department, this is not a judgment. We mean that you can always download and install third-party camera apps.

AndroidAuthority recently published about the best camera apps for Android. The top five apps include Adobe Lightroom, Camera FV-5, Cymera, Filmic Pro, and of course, Google Camera. This simply shows that Google’s camera app that comes pre-installed on Pixel phones is among the best camera apps out there. And of course, you can download and install it to get a better experience on your Samsung Galaxy S22. But there are some nuances. In addition to knowing the main advantages of GCam, you should also know how to download it.

Why install Google Camera?

When trying to convince me why I use GCam as my main camera software, the first thing that comes to my mind is HDR+. Of course, the latter can be found in many smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S22 series. So this time we won’t consider it a core feature of GCam.

Well, let’s have a quick look at the features that GCam has to offer. Among them, we can mention Super Res Zoom, AR Emojis, Google Lens, TimeLapse, Slow-Motion, Astrophotography mode and Photosphere. I think it is pointless to mention RAW, ZSL, Flash, AR Stickers, Night Sight and Portrait mode.


Of course, when using the app on non-Pixel phones, there is always the possibility that some features may not work. That’s why we recommend testing different mods and finding the mode that offers the most functionality.

As mentioned above, GCam is only officially available for Google Pixel devices. Therefore, you cannot install it on your Android device like many other apps. Instead, you should install GCam Mod on your Android device.

What is the google camera port?

Google has been working on this program for years. As a result, Pixel phones come preloaded with one of the best camera apps. Due to the different algorithms, this app is able to take advantage of any camera device.

In this regard, the Google Camera port is the same software that is available for all other smartphones designed by other vendors. We usually call it APK, which stands for “Android Package”.

If you have a powerful smartphone camera but the software is not working well, you can use GCam APK. It features a noticeable difference in image quality and an improved interface. Therefore, the cost of learning is as low as possible.

How to install GCAM on Samsung Galaxy S22

  1. First, you need to download any of these GCam APK files:

Once downloaded, tap on the downloaded APK file. It will ask you for permission. You must enable or allow “Install from Unknown Sources” in your privacy settings.

To enable this feature, go to “Settings” “Security / Privacy” and enable it.

  1. Open the APK and tap the install button.
  2. Once the installation is complete, open File Manager and find the GCam folder. If there is no folder named GCam, create it manually.
  3. Then move the configuration file you downloaded to the newly created configuration folder.
  4. Open the Google Camera app. Double-click on any black area. Select the configuration file you downloaded. Click on restore.

Implemented. Enjoy all the Google Camera tricks on your Samsung Galaxy S22.
