Google Camera vs Stock Camera

Google Camera is a highly optimized Camera from Google which takes the use of full hardware and mixes it with the best software and provides the best quality picture. Google Camera is also a developer’s favorite camera in which you can get many mods. But on the other hand, the Stock camera is limited to some functionality and doesn’t take full advantage of the hardware. And due to this, it fails to provide the best output.
