The camera was one of the weakest points of the Essential Phone when the device was launched. However, so far, the company has done a commendable job of improving the camera through software updates.

And the process continues as a new update has been pushed out to the Essential Camera app that brings along a handful of more improvements.

The update brings back the ability to save, adjust, and share your 360 videos as Tiny Planets. Plus, Burst mode shots now save as a group.
