So using Tripod is recommended. On the other hand, Night sight is better than the stock camera. When using a Tripod, the camera can take photos with more details and light.
Portrait shots are much detail, although edge detection won’t be as accurate as of the stock since it is software-based. But Lens blur mode is good as the stock. The skin tones are much natural, and face textures are better. Other features include panorama, Time Lapse, and 360′ photosphere modes. Most importantly, the Google lens is available within the app.
