Alot of wonders have came out from the GCam Port, enhancing picture quality of non-Pixel branded phone, including last year's S8/S8+, and even the Note8! However, Samsung has done it this year, and their picture quality is amazingly good. I've tinkered around with the settings on a GCam that is ported specifically for Samsung devices with Exynos and Snapdragon chipset. https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/a...G7Exy_V8.2.apk

The settings are attached as screenshots for your convenience. As soon as you open the app, go into developers and start to change those settings first! Otherwise it will keep crashing. I spent some times figuring out the tinting issues, it has to do with the white balances. Everyone's eyesight is different so play with the numbers as you chooses. I cannot get front camera portrait to work or rear portrait to work as it lags too much. @miniuser123, what do you need from us users so we can see what's making portrait mode lags so much? Can you put back what you removed for the S7edge to see if it works?

The settings above allows you to use the GCam port without any tinting issue or crashing, however, portrait front and back are not working. It just lags massively, and front normal hdr+ lags as well! I have attached two pictures and GCam shows more noises when you zoom in vs Sammy, which is much sharper. Dunno why it turned sideways when I uploaded it! The truck picture is Sammy, the normal sedan picture is GCam Port.

Edit 1: @miniuser123 older version works without any tinting issue, but it's NOT as sharp https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-G7...XC_jBYps2/view. Set it to Nexus 5 for model, and very high for hdr+. Any other model gives black screen.

Edit 2: Here's the logcat for the latest cstark version https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Wv...wYstwYfYrqS2sC @cstark27, or @Arnova8G2, please look at this.

Visit this page: https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?show...#entry66080653 and use google chrome to translate what the developers options do.

Sorry for the exynos users, but miniuser made it specifically for his exynos s7 edge though. Maybe the cpu is so different?

Very buggy. Very little works and pictures don't get saved. Hopefully we'll get a working version soon

I have updated the original post, this should work because I tested it multiple time on my unlocked Snapdragon version.

The current updated settings work nicely without any crash (s9+ tmobile) . But when I try to even make the smallest changes like turn off shutter sound it will crash the app every time, forcing me to clear data and cache.

Also, can we get an option to save to SD?
