Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs Galaxy S4 aa (34)

About six months ago, the Samsung Galaxy S4 arrived to the market bringing with it a 13MP camera with some pretty impressive software features. Now that the Galaxy Note 3 is here, the device’s camera is essentially the same as the GS4, but the biggest difference is in the Note 3’s updated camera app.

The Note 3 camera app adds a few new features to the table, including the new Surround Shot mode that works by stitching together individual photos into one spherical image. Think: Photosphere.

While Surround Shot and the other minor changes in the Note 3 camera app might eventually come to the GS4, why wait? Thanks to the efforts of XDA member LastStandingDroid, the Note 3 camera app has now been ported over to the Galaxy S4. Even better, all the Note 3 features are said to be working perfectly.

Installation is relatively easy, too. All you need to do is flash a zip file to your S4 via custom recovery to get it up and running on your Touchwiz-equipped Galaxy S4.

For more details on how to install the camera app on your handset you’ll want to head on over to the XDA Developer’s Forum.
