    Tips to get Sony Xperia Z2 Camera effects on any phone

    Sony Xperia Z series brings you a high end camera with new effects. This consist of AR Effects, Image Search, Motion short, etc. This feature is embedded in the camera rom with default camera app. But now it is possible to have this effect on all of your device. You can use your existing camera to get the same camera effects on your device. But the process consist of rooting and installing custom rom on your device. Without that it is not easy to activate the feature. So here you have a risk of causing warranty void.

    I want to advice you one thing before moving ahead. Follow the procedure properly. After rooting use Rom Manager to backup your existing rom. So that if there is any issue you can restore that easily. After adding the camera you will get a lot of benefits over your existing one. I had mentioned those thing in detail below. There is one issue that is commonly notice with icons on the app. That means the features will not be in the camera app, but they will be available separately in the app drawer.

    Camera Features:

    • Social Live: Through Social live you can take picture and update them instantly on Facebook. You just have to link your facebook account with the same. And when you take photos you can update it instantly. Very impressive feature to share photos instantly.

    • AR Effect: AR Effect allow you to have some live 3D animation on your screen. You can take photos by adding a mask on your face or change the background environment. Quiet entertaining. But has very few effects. If you have a good camera then this effect will work really well. For extra theme you have to update this from Google Play.

    • Motionshot: This one is good for those you need small videos to share them instantly. It allow you to capture moving photos. Something like a gif file. You can then share those thing with your friends. It also allow you to record video as per your need.


    • Wikitude Places: This is like image search. In this you just have to take photo of any popular place and the app will search information about that on the web and will give you the information. You will get accurate results based on your location and data on the same.

    • Background Defocus: This one is my favorite. You can just blur the background of any app quiet easily. You can take photos and tap and blur the background. That's it. This will work really well and will give you great images.
