I have a Mi A3 phone camera. This has a 48Mpix sensor, but I am disappointed in the detail captured compared to, for example, a Sony phone with a 12Mpix sensor.
Now what I notice from image properties in Mi A3 is despite the camera being 48 Mpix, when it is normally taking pics it is taking them as lower resolution per some interinal pre-defined logic. The image captured is 7Mp, 9 MP, or 12 Mp — and this is not in my control.
I want to know how can I capture photos with 12Mp or higher resolution from Mi phone always. I want to capture more information in images than the phone's default camera captures.
A friend of mine suggested to use Google camera app from https://getdroidtips.com/download-google-camera-for-mi-a3-apk-download/ to have stable megapixels all the time as I face the problem above.
