Have you installed the May update yet? You have to manually find the update in your Settings to install it (and I have no idea where I found it unfortunately). It greatly improved camera functionality and I’m actually happy with the camera at the moment. I’ve been switching between the stock camera app for speed and convenience and OpenCamera for manual setup of more specific camera shots. I wouldn’t say this midranger camera is as good as the software management of an iPhone or Pixel, but it does a great job nonetheless.
On the downside, the bokeh mode in the stock app leaves a lot to be desired. I have yet to truly try any semblance of night mode. It doesn’t seem like the stock app HAS a dedicated night mode despite there being a night mode scene accessible to OpenCamera.
In case somebody wants to try a ported version of Google Camera on the UMIDIGI F1 Play (<-- this is just for keywording purposes so that other users can find this post), you may want to try the one for the Xiaomi Poco F1:
I have tried various builds and none worked, would crash upon start. But this one seems to work well. I need to experiment a bit more with it, but the first check was successful.
EDIT: Maybe this isn't the very best choice. In the settings I can select a maximum resolution of only 8.3 MP. If someone knows of a version that takes better advantage of the F1 Play's camera sensor, I'd be happy to know which it is.
there are other threads on there community also, but this one is concidered general.
Thanks to these detailed instructions I managed to root my F1 Play with Magisk. Yahoo!
As I did not pay attention to the notice that unlocking the bootloader with the command "fastboot bootloader unlock" will factory reset my phone I had quite some work to do to get it back into the state it was before that. Therefore, I strongly recommend to make a backup of your installed apps and your launcher settings before proceeding.
Question: As unlocking the bootloader results in the warning message during bootup, is it safe to lock the bootloader now again, or will I factory reset the phone once again? And: If the bootloader is locked, will I still have root?
