As in most phones, 3rd party camera apps (including GCam) can not utilize the full sensor resolution on sensors that use pixel binning. This means that cameras like the 64MP rear main camera is limited to 16MP (64/4=16). This is the same resolution used on the MIUI camera by default.
Features like Portrait mode, Night sight, Astrophotography, Timelapse, etc, should work fine.
All cameras work without root and with most (all?) package names. The depth sensor isn’t used as GCam does the same, but with software.
Regarding video, stabilisation and slow motion will be better on the stock X3 NFC MIUI camera, but Google Camera might allow you to record higher resolutions and higher FPS which are usually blocked on slower processors. Features like Timelapse are also available.
For users on custom ROMs, you may have to use a fix on some ROMs to enable the extra cameras. Test first, if it doesn’t work then try the fixes.
