Google Camera with HDR+ Ported to Snapdragon 820/821 and 835 Devices

One of the incentives of owning a Google Pixel is its camera software, which allows for excellent high dynamic range photos thanks to its HDR+ mode. That benefit is no longer exclusive, however: a modified version of the Google Camera app with HDR+ has been released, and it functions on a variety of other phones that include the Galaxy S8 and LG G6.
