Camera apps today are a key feature for smartphone. So important that many people choose their smartphone based on which one has the best camera. I have to mention that every smartphone comes with its own software for the camera. These software are specifically designed for that specific camera so you do not have to underestimate it, in fact, in many cases they can provide better quality. However, they often lack functionality, or are not constantly updated, so let's go to the Play Store to see which apps are the best.
