Both the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 and Redmi Note 6 Pro both come with a great set of rear cameras. Redmi Note 6/Note 6 Pro and Google camera can be a great combo and guess what, now this thing is a reality as there is a working Gcam Ported APK available for the devices. You can Download and Install that on your device to get Night Sight and HDR+ features on your device
Xiaomi’s cameras are really great. They offer great image quality even in a low budget device. 2 years ago Redmi Note 6 and Note 6 Pro were released and they created loads of hype thanks to the camera sensors. The stock MIUI camera which comes with the devices is really good but it lacks some features and the image processing is not that great compared to Google Camera app.
Google camera has the best portrait mode and the image processing done by the camera app is just another level. The low light images (Night sight) is also the best in the market. You can take better images with your device’s camera with the app.
