Comparison between the stock camera and Google Camera App:
1I took a couple of samples with this camera application, and they are better than the native Zenfone Max pro Camera Samples.
2In daylight, the images from the stock camera seem to be very soft compared to the images from the Google Camera app.
3Photos from Google Camera app much better contrast and saturation but then don't do a very good job when it comes to the shadows.
4Overall the images from the Google Camera app they look a lot better and they retain a lot more detail than the Stock Camera app.
5For some reason the HDR mode on the Stock, the app is very badMost of the time it just blows out all of the colors and everything looks very badIt only works in a few selected scenarios.
6Even the portrait shots are better on the Google Camera app.
7When it comes to selfies once again Asus's native app produces very soft pictures whereas the images from the Google Camera are contrasty and well saturated.
So as expected the output from the Google Camera app is way better than the Asus's Stock Camera app.
