How to get OnePlus 5T Camera app on Xiaomi Mi A1

Xiaomi’s Mi A1 not only heated up the budget segment with its camera abilities but also marked the return of Google’s Android One project. The Mi A1 revolutionized the budget smartphone market its extraordinary dual camera’s following which Chinese OEMs also flooded the market with similar clones. But none of them matched the quality of Mi A1’s camera, the Mi A1 also excelled in taking portrait shots in daylight, and it also had a Telephoto lens for 2x lossless zoom.

However, the Mi A1 is still far away when it comes to matching the level of photos to that of flagships. The OnePlus 5T is one of the best camera smartphones, and now the OnePlus 5T’s Camera app is available and can be installed on your Xiaomi Mi A1.

The OnePlus Camera app provides better manual control options, better portrait and HDR processing along with a stable 4K footage recording. But do note that 4K video recording for longer periods will put a lot of heavy processing load on your chipset. Overall the OnePlus Camera app is more refined and does things the better way.
