This camera app is highly-recommended over stock camera as you get the additional portrait mode, especially for the front camera. By using this modded Google HDR+ camera, your camera performance nears that of latest Pixel 2 and possible better photos in certain situations.
The Camera NX is GREAT for HDR+ or Portrait mode and makes your Nexus 6P/5X/Pixel photo-processing algorithms better than stock camera. You have absolute no reason to not use this camera APK as it works flawless on the Nexus 6P or 5X or Pixel.
There’s TWO different versions of this modded Google HDR+ camera APK, one of them “ZCL-enhanced” which contain a few more extra features like motion photos but requires Android 8.0 Oreo or above. The regular version includes 240fps slow-motion along with all the basic Pixel features but you can run it on Android 7.1 Nougat or higher.
