I am using this version of the mod with good results.

A quick and dirty comparison with my Pixel 2 XL.

Hi. Does this need root? It only opens and closes on my Mi Max 3.

Cheers

Yes, root is required. Root using Magisk and then install the Camera2API Magisk module. You should be able to use Google Camera after that

The photos you've taken look great. Hard to believe they were taken with a budget device like the Max 3. Even more excited to get my hands on it now.

Yes, sometimes it crashes but not that often.

Regarding, photo quality. Yes, it looks great, especially in low light. I have used the gcam mod on many devices and it always delivers great stills. Even older and cheaper phones like Redmi 5 Plus and Mi 5s Plus with worse camera hardware takes great low light photos when using gcam and hdr+.

On smartphones, I believe photo quality is like 90% good software optimization and 10% good hardware.

Sounds like a good start. Perhaps try saneklic's APKs? They're optimised for the Redmi 5 Plus, which has a similar sensor and framework to the Mi Max 3. I found them to be very stable on my Redmi Note 4.

Yes but Max 3 is even more similar to Redmi Note 5 AI (same sensor and SOC) and the apk above is that works best on Note 5 according to users on the Note 5 forum I think.

Fair point. Crashes are pretty annoying though.

Oh man I can't wait till mine arrives, sucks that I need to wait 360 hours before I can flash anything and try this camera. GCAm is always so darn good.
