Take Better Photos On Nokia 7 Plus With Google Camera Mod

The camera quality of Nokia 7 Plus leaves a lot to be desired. In this article, we are going to make use of the modified Google Camera APK to take better pictures with the Nokia 7 Plus. Read ahead to know more and download Google Camera Mod for Nokia 7 Plus.

Last year, HMD Global entered the smartphone market by reviving the Nokia brand. These smartphones offered great build quality, a clean and smooth user interface, regular monthly updates and some fairly decent specifications. This year, at the MWC, HMD Global announced a lower midrange android one certified smartphone that seemed pretty interesting. It was launched in India in mid-April and has received some decent attention.


Like every other Nokia branded phone, the Nokia 7 Plus has a fantastic build, silky smooth user interface and the promise of regular updates for three years courtesy of Android One certification. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 which can be compared with Snapdragon 820 in terms of performance. 4 GB LPDDR4X RAM is in charge of multitasking skills. So, there is no compromise on performance. It has got a dual camera setup at the back comprising a 12 MP, f/1.75 primary lens with 1.4-micron pixel size and another 12 MP, f/2.6 telephoto zoom lens that offers 2x optical zoom.

On paper, the cameras look great. But the cameras have received some mixed opinions from many reviewers and Nokia 7 Plus owners. As it has decent camera hardware, there might be some issues with Nokia’s software processing. The camera app is the only app that Nokia has preloaded on this device except for necessary Google apps.

If you feel your Nokia 7 Plus has the same issue, read this complete article for the solution.

Nokia 7 Plus Google Camera Mod

Last year, Google unveiled the Pixel 2 series of smartphones which is still claimed to be the best camera on any smartphone by many people around the globe. Many credited the Google Camera app to do magic with image processing. In fact, it clicks the best portrait photographs when compared to any other smartphones that too with a single camera. Since then, many developers tried out different ports and modded versions of this app to make it eligible to run on other smartphones as well. These mods even worked great to click better pictures. So, it’s true that the Google Camera app can click better images but the problem is to find the right mod that can work perfectly with your device.

Install Nokia 7 Plus Google Camera Mod

To install this app, follow the steps written below:

  1. Download the app from the link mentioned in this article.
  2. Open Settings app and click on Security.
  3. From the list of options, enable “Unknown Sources”. By enabling it, you are authorizing your device to sideload APK files in your device.
  4. Go to the folder where the file you downloaded in step 1 is stored and install it.
  5. Once the installation is complete, grant all necessary permissions that are being asked and you are good to go.

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. The camera app was working fine, but suddenly it had stopped working on my Nokia 7 plus. What should I do to fix this problem.

  2. I have the same problem. Suddenly, yesterday june 16th, it stopped working. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it, cleaned cache, but it seems nothing works. The strange thing is that video works OK and so does the focus effect. Any suggestions?

  3. The Latest june security patch has made the Gcam non functional, please can you fix the same? That was really good picture processing.

    • Can you tell me what exactly changed in the latest update apart from the Security Patch version? Was there a major Android version change?

  4. Yes the same thing happened with my nokia 7 plus. After the june security patch. Google cam just stopped working. Do you have any solution to it?

  5. Sorry, I don’t know where to look at so I can tell you about the changes. But, no, there was no a major Android version change.

  6. Indeed.. the security patch has screwed the application.. app keeps crashing.. I think intentionally some new things were pushed so that phone won’t support pixel cam app..

  7. Hi. I’ve found this apk. Seems to work OK, but… Slow motion doesn’t. I think they’re working on it. Meanwhile, everything else goes fine.

  8. Have you already tried the new apk? I find that HDR mode gives bad results. Photos with HDR+ on seem too… grey… They lose brightness and color. What do you think? BTW, sorry for my english. I swear I’m doing the best I can!

  9. It works excellrnt but not getting this point that why it delets photos (which were taken by this in portrait mode) automatically on rebooting. It has been 2 times. Yesterday i lost all photos of Rakshabandhan . Please if u haveany solution tell me to restore those lost photos.

  10. Hello and thanks a lot for your work with Gcam.
    Are there any specific settings for this version to get better results?
