So, I'm considering getting a new phone - the Galaxy S6 - but, even though Android Lollipop supports it, this phone does not have the ability to shoot in camera RAW.
My question boils down to this: is this a hardware or software limitation? My first inclination is that would be a software limitation in the camera "driver". However, it occurs to me that phone manufacturers might be using hardware to process images straight to jpg within the camera chip. Does this sound plausible?
...a followup question is: if it is a SW limitation, would I be able to get an app that shot camera raw? I don't see those in the app store.
