However, the Good Lock app is not available in all countries worldwide, and Samsung needs to change its stance on the availability of such a useful app. If you are in a region that doesn’t have access to Good Lock, you won’t be able to install the Camera Assistant app on your Galaxy smartphone. Alternatively, you can install the APK file of the app directly if you’ve downloaded it from a safe source.

Camera Assistant offers various advanced settings for the stock camera app. It provides a way to increase the shutter speed, enable/disable Auto HDR, force the camera to use a particular lens, start video recording in Photo mode, customize the number of pictures to be captured in timer mode, and offer a clean viewfinder view on an HDMI connected display.
