New Essential Phone camera app update improves photo capture speed
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.
