What's the difference between them?

I just flashed this version on my U since I thought it would be more suited, coming from the U beta program rather than G.

So far I have noticed out of the box this gcam camera port seems to work whereas on the B01 you need to install Nfounds patch to get even v4.4 of gcam to work.

Biggest negative so far is much the same as the Nougat rom on the U version and something I believe Nfound was trying to work on before he released the ROM; Thats localization issues, you only have a few languages to select from so that means for an app like google maps you can't use an english UK computer voice as the phone thinks you are always in the US. Same if you wanted to use a computer voice to pronounce street names in any language for that matter. Changing the text to speech values in the rom do not affect this as maps uses separate info now.
This has an impact outside of maps too, with some apps defaulting to you being in the US regardless of your current location. It would be lovely if other locales could be added just the same as the Euro B01 ROM.

Apart from that I can't see any differences really, the power manager looks more modern and up to date and there seems to be an option to customise mi-pop, can't remember if that was there before.

I still don't know what to make of this craze right now of HDR+, I've done several tests with the stock camera app and to me when I use HDR+ the image just looks the same without HDR. HDR however looks better. With Gcam and my limited testing its different though, HDR and HDR+ both look better than non-HDR.

I am a sceptic and my guess would be this, despite the apps having HDR+ they aren't working properly with it. Gcam when you used HDR+ or HDR+ enhanced is just taking a standard HDR picture and the stock camera is broken when using HDR+ and only takes a non-HDR picture whilst using standard HDR on the stock app does work. Maybe someone can help me with my findings?

ZTE Stock Camera
Standard

HDR

HDR Auto


Google Camera

Standard

HDR+

HDR+(enhanced)


What do people think?

Edit# also noticed that each time you first open Magisk it crashes, works second time each time though and passes safety net fine.
Edit2# Magisk v 16 just broke for me after a few reboots, v16.4 seems to work better.

Major issue so far is system isn't writable any more, had this issue a while back with Nougat and back then it was related to the bootsect.

Edit3#
Code:
su
reboot disemmcwp
does not make system writable either, just the same as Nougat with this problem.

No sorry, it's only HDR auto. I incorrectly said it was HDR+.

Anyone know the difference between HDR plus and HDR plus enhanced?

Ps the system not writable is a known issue.

HDR+ enhanced lowers shutter speed so as to capture more light. Downside is you have to stay still longer while taking the photo as it takes more time to capture it.
HDR+ is almost instant with fast shutter speed. Tradeback is lower quality, noticeable mainly in very low light.

I use HDR+ almost always and HDR+ enhanced in very low light situations. That's the only time where it makes a big difference IMO.

If you always want best quality just pick HDR+ enhanced.
