New Essential Phone camera app update improves photo capture speed
I think we can all agree that the camera app is probably the worst aspect of the Essential Phone. Even though the US company released quite a few updates, the camera app is not there yet, so many Essential Phone owners might feel frustrated that they can't install third-party apps.

Still, the updates continue to come for the Essential Camera app, so hope is not yet lost. The latest update that the Android app received this week doesn't bring any new features into the mix but certainly contains some improvements.

The most important change is the speed with which the camera can capture photos. Essential says the latest update should further improve animations, as well as photo capture speed across all camera modes, including Burst mode.

Additionally, various stability fixes have been implemented too, so you should feel the camera app much smoother after the update, which, by the way, is already available for download via Google Play Store.
