What is the best camera app for FP3?


I am currently wondering if there is a best camera app to take photos. For now I have got a FP3 and a FP3+ (my wife).

What about the following apps?

  • FP3 default camera app
  • LineageOS FP3 default app
  • Open Camera


Subsidiary question: is it possible to install the Fairphone cam app onto LineageOS?

Thanks by advance.

If you are willing to try an app that is neither open source nor available through an app store, I would strongly recommend to try the unofficial port of Google’s camera app for their Pixel phones. You can see some photos taken with FP3s or FP3+s using this app here:

In my opinion, the difference the app makes is so much bigger than the difference between the FP3 and the FP3+ camera hardware.


Thank you for your answer @urs_lesse.

I have been having a try with that app, and this is good! I may use this one.

Pay attention to selfie photos when you use this app – on my FP3+, this app only uses a fraction (4 MP) of the selfie camera+ resolution (16 MP). So for selfies, you might still prefer another app.
But for the main camera (rear camera), the photos are really better than with the default camera app. :slight_smile:
