Download Google Camera APK For Moto G5 Plus

Updated on 23 May 2020 by

Google Camera Port is now available for Moto G5 Plus. Though the camera that comes preloaded with Moto G5 Plus is decent enough, Google Camera for Moto G5 Plus offers better picture quality.

The Moto G5 Plus sports in a 5.2-inch FHD IPS LCD display. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC clocked at 2.0 GHz and comes with 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 256GB via a micro SD card. It runs on Stock Android 7.1.1 out of the box which can be updated to Android Oreo. It is juiced by a 3000 mAh. In the camera department, the Moto G5 Plus packs in a 12 MP sensor that is combined with a f/2.0 lens. On the front, there is a 5 MP sensor.

Though the phones pack in some decent camera hardware, the software processing is not up to the mark to rival with the best in the game of mobile photography. For three years in a row, Google proved that with better software processing algorithms, their phones with a single rear camera can outperform phones with multiple cameras on the rear. If you happen to own a Moto G5 Plus and want a similar level of image processing, here is how you can achieve that.

And you are done.

No root or any special steps needed. Once you install the app, you can simply open the app, grant the required permissions and start using it.

Recommended Settings

These APKs don’t require any additional configuration, but, on top of the usual options (camera sounds, video resolution, etc) there are a few things you can change (explore the settings menu!):

  • HDR+ parameters: “Default” is enough for most people. Higher settings may produce better photos, especially in hard conditions, but it takes more time to process.
  • HDR+ image quality: Change the jpg compression (a lower value results in smaller files, but the quality is worse).
  • HDR+ RAW+JPG: Save RAW files.
  • Correction of auto-exposure HDR or Auto-Exposure: Controls shutter speed, not 100% stable. Works better in low light and with HDR enhanced enabled.
  • HDR+ enhanced for portrait mode: Slower, but better portrait photos.
  • Disable zoom in portrait mode: By default, it zooms in a bit.
  • Use Nexus6P model: Photos with better details/sharpness (and noisier).
  • Since slow motion doesn’t work on Oreo, you can hide the option from the menu:
    Settings > Advanced > Fix Camera API2 > “Disable video slow motion”

Android Oreo users: if you can’t see your photos from inside Google Camera, go to “Debugging and tools”, uncheck “camera.use_photos” and restart the app.

Options/options names can be changed/removed depending on the version.

  1. I am also unable to install the app. I sideloaded it and used ES File Explorer to install. It says the app is staging, then the next screen asks if I want to install the application and notes it doesn’t require any special access. I click to install, it begins installing but then shows a triangle with an exclamation point inside and “App not installed.” I have tried a half-dozen different variants of the same app from APKMirror and XDADevelopers. The only success was with version 2.4 which is from 2014. Phone is a Moto G5 Plus (XT1687), with stock Android 8.1.

  2. I am unable to install APK. It is showing app not compatible with phone. I am using Moto g5 plus and downloaded the mod for the same.
