Install Expert RAW on Samsung Galaxy Phones [How To]
Smartphone cameras have come a long, long way. To a point that if you are looking to get a modern-day smartphone, I can guarantee that you can use that for all your photo needs. Yes, I know that dedicated professional cameras are still miles ahead but if you are looking at something that can take great pictures right out of the box, then a smartphone camera cannot be ignored. Samsung is one of the companies that are leading the vanguard as far as the cameras and how good they are, is concerned. The company recently released a dedicated camera app called Expert RAW that allows you to take your photography to next level. However, the app is currently only limited to some regions, which means that not everyone can have access to it. If you want to install Expert Raw on Samsung Galaxy Phones and wondering how you can do it, I am here to help you.
The process of installing Expert RAW on Samsung Galaxy Phones is super simple, to be honest. However, it is important to know that the app is currently only available for the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S21 devices. While you can sideload the app on older Galaxy phones as well, I cannot guarantee if it will work as it is intended.
Install Expert RAW on Samsung Galaxy Phones and Take Amazing Pictures
There are a lot of benefits to installing Installing the Expert RAW app on Samsung Galaxy Phones. For starters, it allows you to use all the rear cameras of your phone in pro mode. This means that aside from the standard and ultra-wide zoom, it also uses telephoto and super-telephoto, which is a great feature. However, you cannot use the front camera with this app or record videos, for that matter.
Step 1: The first step is to download Expert RAW from here.
Step 2: Once the app is downloaded, simply tap on the notification.
Step 3: Your phone will now prompt you to allow installation from an unknown source. Simply accept that install
Step 4: The app will be installed in a few seconds.
Now, all you have to do is go ahead and launch the app and get started with the shooting process. Now, for those wondering why Expert RAW manages to take better RAW photos than the standard RAW file that your phone's camera capture. It is because Expert RAW not only stores all the information on the picture, it also takes advantage of computational photography, which results in a much better overall picture with a high dynamic range, brightness, and no noise.
