Sometimes gcam wins, sometimes stock cam wins.
What I dont like about gcam is fact no manual mode (maybe if one day Apple offers , Google does too). Many features cant be used.
Anyway, the main features will be offer as CinemaPro and PhotoPro, stock app will be same from xz3.

Even the 2x optical zoom pictures from OnePlus 7t were inferior from the 2x digital through note 8 pro using gcam.

But having said that, Exynos this year sucks in comparison to SD865.
In CPU (multi core), GPU, Battery efficiency, Thermal throttling.
Worst part is that only US variant is SD865. Rest of the world gets Exynos variant.
Most users won't notice difference in performance in lighter tasks but in real world test, Chinese phones costing half the 1300-1400$ price are faster than Exynos variant S20 in heavy duty tasks.

Who cares if the Snapdragon has a bit better synthetic benchmark scores on some things, when Android software is optimised for older devices?
