This is why I mostly only use it for quick point-and-shoot pics.

As for Camera2 API, I'm not sure if it's entirely inaccessible as OpenCamera is able to access things usually limited to Camera2 API using a toggle specifically called "Use Camera2 API". However, it still is unable to save RAW/DMG files, so maybe not completely accessible??????


I think the camera2.api is fully functional on the F1 Play!! Well, level_3 isn't.... but I'm not sure if that's absolutely needed. I need to research it.

Use the app Camera2 probe from the play store.

All we need is a modded version of Gcam and we're all set! The Google pixel camera app should fully function. We just need to find a version that supports the Samsung Chip and the Helio P60

Not sure if gcam can access the dual cameras? My understanding is that no 3rd party app has access to the dual cameras via the API. So, perhaps gcam will?

The bokah mode in the stock camera is horrible. Also stock camera focusing is awful.

Wondering if anyone else notices that the in call speaker volume is very low. Any idea on how to fix it?

I have the phone over a month now. Managed to root it, used exposed but something was missing. Also got random reboots from time to time.
So today decided to play with Pie gsi roms. I installed blissrom. First impressions are excellent. No more reboots. Fully customizable and rooted again with magisk. Also themable.
Calls work as it should. Great sound and cameras work perfect. Click image for larger version

Does NFC work? Are there any non-standard steps in flashing procedure, or just a straightforward TWRP zip? Cheers

I hope you made a backup image of your phone when you first installed custom recovery. If so, just restore your nvdata /nvcfg to get back your IMEIs. As for the red text, I can give you the method but it will be to no avail. Go to the mtk engineer mode. Under 'Log and Debugging' select 'Debug Utils'. There you will see 'Clear Red Screen'. Now the caveat. It's currently a dummy button and will do nothing. The theory is that the debug level needs to be change to 'Engineer Mode' and that currently can't be done either. It just trolls you saying to "Try again later."

My suggestion is to keep writing UMIDIGI. They are not known for their customer service like this, so don't have your hopes too high. Your other option is to look around the forums and encourage people to help unlock the engineer mode features. Good luck.

Yes, I am using a pure VoLTE service by a German provider.

I don't see why it should not work with other providers in the UK.
