    Just started using it, wow. The image quality in the 920 seems to be a ton better.

    Any tips/tricks to know?

    Is it possible to pay extra to Nokia and get the app on my Samsung ATIV S? I've found that Samsung's firmware has multiple compatibility issues so that most of camera apps available in Store won't work. Like notorious ProShot doesn't work (it's nice of them to have added an note on their page several months after I paid for their app only to find it does not work on ATIV S).

    I am highly impressed with Nokia's camera app I've used on my wife's Lumia and would love to pay Nokia twice its standard price only to have the app on my Samsung.

    I am not sure however, it would be possible even though Nokia could make the app publicly available for other apps just because it doesn't seem Samsung has integrated camera API/driver in their firmware to deliver functionality required by Nokia.

    Did you try proxy trick?
    Yes but I'd failed to make my phone route through the proxy. I wasn't happy to proxify connection via that publicly known IP in Hong-Kong and decided that I'd rather ran Fiddler myself. I ran it on my laptop making sure Fiddler is listening on all interfaces (0.0.0.0/0) and accepts remote connections from other PCs but for some reason my phone failed to connect to it.

    I'd appreciate your help.

    Also, I'd appreciate any explanations on the given trick. As far as I got it, proxy clears out device identifications so that remote part does not know of the device attempting to get the app.

    Most importantly, I can't dig how does this trick manage with running apps? I've managed to obtain Nokia's apps via marketplace (just by simply downloading their XAP files) but none succeeded to run by issuing errors on start.

    Sorry but I never fiddled with fiddler. I've never tried it as proxy trick did the job for me. Check the link below and see if you're not missing anything. Its a tutorial to install Nokia Pro Cam on HTC 8X but it should work for ATIV S too.

    PS: Nokia Pro Cam requires GDR2 but I'm assuming you know that already.

    Pro Cam and many apps will only work in conjunction with the Amber update, you could side load or direct download all kinds of apps
    but if those appl only work with AMBER they won't work if you don't have Amber.

    I downloaded via Wi-Fi proxy Beats Audio -it's a Samsung systems app, my Lumia 810 doesn't have the firmware to enable it, it now sits in settings just below
    audio and above feedback to Nokia looking really impressive but it just sits there I can't enable it. I do have some Samsung apps that do work,
    Apps Folder, Mini Diary, Photogram and Video Trimmer they all work but those are not OS specific apps. Pro Cam and Smart Cam are, without Amber they won't work even if you could install them.
