Instagram makes this irrelevant

The quality of cellphone cameras has sadly become irrelevant because people tend to ruin their photos with Instagram's photo filter before sharing them. Sadly, a phone's ability to take beautiful color-accurate photos is irrelevant because the user will turn everyone's skin yellow, and add grain and a goofy retro frame on the photo in a desperate attempt to be creative by making their photos look exactly like every other Instagram photo.

Camera KK

Mobilynx did a great job with this clone of the KitKat stock camera. I prefer it over the stock LG camera. Sure it's a paid app, but it's worth the 1.99.

Here is a great one! ... » I use this one as my current fave right now on my Moto G. Where it really helps is when the flash is to bright. You can dial down the exposure so it doesn't blow out the shot, Which happens on the G. Lots of great features though too. Self timer etc etc.

The stock shots looked better

Thanks for the review, just after looking at the side by sides you may have saved people a lot of time fiddling with some of the 3rd party apps. To the naked eye, you really can't see a difference in some of those shots. In others, the two camera apps shots look worse. Unless you are someone who pays attention to detail (most of us aren't) majority of people won't tell the difference.
