Hello,
I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Exynos with android 9.0 Pie and OneUI 1.0, not rooted.
I have searched for a Gcam apk to work with my phone with night sight (night mode) and eventually all features working ;)

The solution that I found is the following:
First, I have installed:
Arnova's Advanced 1.5: GCam_6.1.021_Advanced_V1.5.190418.1850.apk (Arnova8G2, 2019-04-18)
from here:

https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-arnova8G2/

I have used the following settings in the application:
Mod settings:
- HDR+ parameters: 15
- Autoexposure correction: 1,5 sec
- Correction NightSight: 1/6 sec
- Pixel 3 AWB: “ON”
- Advanced > Base > Config > “Pixel2018 HW Zsl Hdr(need YUV)
- Advanced > Base > Back camera > “Pixel 3 XL”
- Advanced > Base > Front camera > “Pixel 3 XL”
- Advanced > FIX > Using Sabre: “Auto”
- Advanced > FIX > RAW Format: “RW_SENSOR”
- Advanced > FIX > Viewfinder Format: “YUV_420_888”

Photo:
- Advanced > General > Final JPG quality: “100%”
- Advanced > General > Option HDR+: “ON”
- Advanced > Portrait > Enhanced HDR+: “ON”
- Advanced > Portrait > Remove zoom: “ON”
- Advanced > Portrait > Save to /DCIM/Camera: “ON”
- Advanced > Nightvision > Alternative config: “ON”
- Advanced > Others > Optical Stabilization (OIS): “ON”

All the features of GCam are working without error.
I have tried also to install from the same site:
Arnova's Advanced 1.7: Gcam_6.1.021_Advanced_V1.7.190716.1800.apk (Arnova8G2, 2019-07-16)

with the same settings are there are no problems there also.
If this helps you, don't forget to press the THANKS Button :)

I have tried to install the version: Arnova's 6.2.030 v2.2: Gcam_6.2.030_Advanced_V2.2.190716.1800-Final.apk (Arnova8G2, 2019-07-16) from the same link but I have no image and I cannot access the settings.

Has someone with root tried to install this version?
Maybe it doesn’t work on my phone because it’s not root?

How about speed?
Can we shoot pics with Enhanced HDR+ enabled one by one?
Means take a pic and do not wait for processing to take the next pic?

Hello everyone! Does this work for the galaxy s8 exynos?? I redirected here from the gcam forum in xda..
Yes it works good on exynos model. Apply the settings as told by senior xda member, @extended84

If applying those many r too much then atleast do the following for PORTRAIT MODE and NIGHT Sight to work. Follow.my steps below:

1) Advanced > FIX > RAW Format: “RW_SENSOR”
2) Advanced > Nightvision > Alternative config: “ON”

In my review there is slight difference in Gcam n Samsung Camera. But Gcam gives u variety of options to change.

Same, for portrait mode at least. Photos are so exposed they're almost all white - S8 Exynos.
Overall, app works rather slow - other than occasionally using Night Mode it won't be useful at all.

Hi,

I browsed that page and honestly I'm lost. The list is very long and confusing. I have Galaxy S8 Exynos. Which file I should download?

But portrait mode does not work. At least not in a normal way. Every single photo is overexposured.
Same goes to night sight, but at least there, the overexposure is needed to be exposured correctly in the dark.

    Good but portrait not working

    Everything works pretty well except Portrait Mode.
    Photos are way too over exposed.

    Do you know any setting that could fix that?
