I would pay for the app yes, as some phones I've used recently could benefit from a better / simpler camera app - Sony Xperia 1 for example.

Would I pay that amount of money for it? Nope.

I don't think I'd pay $100 but if I could just download the app on any phone (e.g. OnePlus 7 Pro) and get Pixel quality pics without any gcam tweaks, mods, issues, I'd definitely pay money. Not sure what the threshold would be for me... maybe somewhere between $25-$50... but that's only if the paid app stays in my library and can always be downloaded on future phones too.

I don't pay for any other Google apps, wouldn't start with the camera app. I use a pixel but even if I didn't no

I actually send google an email asking for it. Got a feedback email saying they are reviewing it. Finger crossed. I'll throw 100$ for the app to have it forever and with all functions like on the pixel.

Saying they're reviewing it is obviously a standard email.

The camera is surely the biggest plus when considering the Pixel, more so than stock Android. Why would they make that available on other devices and damage their phone sales?
