You can now install Google Camera on the Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10 Plus. The Pixel 3 is considered as the smartphone with the best camera ever, and that is particularly thanks to the camera app the phone has. Google has put all its knowledge and resources into the camera software and has created one of the best camera apps in the world. The Pixel 3 can take some of the best pictures in low-light and portrait modes.
With the release of the flagship trio by Samsung, users have been looking for ways to install the Google Camera (GCam) on their phones. The Google Camera provides better pictures in most cases. Photos are not as overexposed as with stock Samsung camera app, low-light photos are much brighter and the photos overall are sharper with more detail in them.
Developer cstark27 has published the proper Google Camera 6.1 APK file which works with the Galaxy S10e, S10 and s10 Plus. The app works well only on the Snapdragon variant. You can install it on the Exynos variant but photos taken on phones with this chipset are overexposed. Furthermore, modes like Portrait and Night Sight will not work on Exynos phones.
