Improvement of camera performance in 3rd party apps

(Topic created: 10-27-2021 10:05 PM)
The Pixel 6 series launched about a week ago and there is one thing it does better than any android phone and that is the camera optimization in third party apps. In both Snapchat and Instagram on the Pixel 6, you are able to use ths ultrawide AND telephoto cameras within the app. This is likely due to the recent stable release of CameraX for Android. What does Samsung need to do software wise to match the Pixel 6? The in app experience is pretty bad in Snapchat/Instagram/TikTok on my S21 Ultra. These apps are still screen recording the camera viewfinder which causes a severe loss of framerate especially in low light. These apps are still locked to the main camera sensor which is always exposing for a photo. Samsung definitely needs to address this by working closer with the developers of these apps.
