Hi everyone,

I was told some very amusing information in a chat with support yesterday. They first told me that there is no Nokia-specific software in the phones at all. When I said that the camera app was also HMD (and the system software adapted by Evenwell) then I was told that
The Camera was an alliance with google and the support app was made by us.
(Bold text added by me to highlight it).

Now this is very interesting! Is it true? If so then why doesn't the HMD camera perform better in low light when compared with GCam? Can anyone find any similarities between the HMD camera app and GCam? Or maybe HMD based their camera app on the AOSP one? (if there is one).

I couldn't resist adding my remark about asking @juho when I next see him :D Maybe he can come and tell us himself?

What do you think about this? Is it true? Have the support team received incorrect information from HMD? Do they say it to make customers feel better?

Cheers :smiley:
