Hi, I tried different parameters to get the best quality possible using GCamera_Mod_v.5.1.23_R4X.apk on my Mate 10. I started with Ajmansk settings, and found this:

Saturation adjustement -> highlight 2.8, shadow 2.5
HDR+ white balance -> red 100%, green even 75%, green odd 75%, blue 63%
Advanced settings -> main camera -> HDR+ denoise multiplier back 200%
Advanced settings -> front camera -> base model Nexus 6P, front camera photo resolution (16:9) 2.1mpx, HDR+ denoise multiplier front 300%

Notes:
- flash doesn't work with main cam
- using the front one in low light with screen flash is better with stock cam
- 6mpx photos (16:9) with front cam also doesn't work no matter the phone model you choose, so I compared the quality of 8mpx (4:3) and 2.1mpx (16:9) and got better results with the latter
- in low light I think stock cam is better than Gcam for the rear one, if you don't mind to have some oversharpening

Seems to work with EMUI 10:
- flash works with both cams
- 16:9 modes (8.9mpx on back, 6mpx on front) doesn't work, only with 2mpx

Yes, with that notification I tought the same the first time I used it.

In reality, the picture is saved in /DCIM/Camera but Gallery app doesn't show it. If you look at that folder with a file manager, you'll see all the pictures.

So far, the biggest problem I couldn't resolve yet is the strong blue cast in daylight with rear cam. I'll be posting my findings and comparisions in the weekend.

Well, so far I found 3 problems using GCamera_Mod_v.5.1.23_RX4
- the "Processing HDR+ notifications, and photos not shown on Gallery app (albeit files are saved anyway)
- strong blue cast on daylight pics taken with back cam
- audio channels are inverted in videos

Here are the pictures comparing Gcam (left) vs stock cam (right)

On low light, there is a big difference in quality:

Also with front cam the quality is much better (the poster is grainy, and the colors are exactly as taken by Gcam):

    Camera crashes on clicking shutter button
    Also can you post screenshot of the ideal sweet spot settings please?
    Ok so the app does work you just have to disable motion pictures and the rest is just adjusting the tuning of colors, i do think that the portrait is better then huawei camera its just takes a bit to play with the white balance and saturation.
    https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-arthur/#apk919 thats the link from all of those the only ones that work are GCamera_Mod_v.5.1.23_R4X.apk whether is version 20,21,22 or 23. There is really no need to play with settings only colors. Here ill post some pictures from portrait back and front cam and also pictures from back cam. Its hard to get a perfect color reproduction but just play with them and see what fits you honestly it seems like the pcitures have a filter apply but you can get really good shots . The one picture that looks more plain of the drawing that is normal camera huaweis camera. The one that looks like a filter apply thats the gcam. Cheers.

    Sorry guys i have bad news for you. Huawei and Honor have officially disabled support for Google camera in their latest EMUI 9. All who got the EMUI 9 will not get the taste of Google camera anymore until they will enable it again. According to the developer Urynx05.
    This was my biggest ever mistake i brought the honor phone. These people are disgusting. These people restrict users in all the way. You can't do anything with your mobile.
    1:- You can't unlock the bootloader
    2:- Now disabled the support of Google camera
    3:- Third party launchers are not working well with EMUI 9
    4:- You can't record the logcat. If you record the logact there will be no meaningful information.

    ArnovaG82 did the great job. He did so much hard work to make Google camera compatible with kirin devices. We were enjoying the Google camera on EMUI 8.2. we were happy about it but Huawei and Honor disabled completely in their latest EMUI 9 update.
    I am not gonna buy Honor/Huawei smartphone ever again because these people are not giving any freedom to the users.
    If Huawei/Honor don't like these things why dont they make their own operating system..

    Works in my Huawei Mate 10, with EMUI 8.0.0. However, colors are so pale both in night sight and normal mode. Also app crashed a few times during night sight.

    bsg mod settings ->saturation-> back camera -> highlight saturation 2,5 ->shadow saturation 2.2
