Purchased the Iphone 8 & realized there wasn’t Portrait Mode & for the money, not too happy. I almost went back to the store to trade in for 7+,8+ or X specifically for the Portrait Mode feature. Then I saw this app & it actually is equivalent too the Portrait mode feature on those devices! I’m extremely happy now that I don’t have to return the phone. xD
The only downside about the app (which maybe I just haven’t found yet) is that once your done editing an image, I can’t seem to find a HOME button to edit or take another photo. I have to close the app & re open it. But other than that I’m rating a 5 on the app because it does exactly what I need it to do!

Wow (iPhone 6s Plus)

I was very skeptical about how well this would work considering you have to paint the areas to keep in focus, but the results are dope. It’s not as dead simple as shoot and it’s done (a la iPhone 7/8 Plus or Pixel 2) but it’s not TOO tough and will definitely extend the life of my iPhone 6s Plus camera for at least one more generation.

Word of advice: use a different camera to shoot and use this app to edit. The camera is TOO simple and not as nice to use as even the default camera app.

Decent dual-camera alternative

So Apple decides not to use native software engineering to simulate bokeh effect on iPhones with one camera, unlike what Google has successfully tried on Pixel, fine. But there are still ways to avoid an extra cost for buying a probably bulky iPhone only for its portrait-taking capabilities, among which and among the ones I’ve tried so far Fab Focus is hands down the pioneer. Well worth the humble price, it’ll make your eyes sparkle.
