Hi
I purchased the LGV40 a month ago, and I'm looking to install gcam
Where can I find the best link on this website?
Is it compatible with the pixel 3 camera app?

Go with arnova's port. Seems to work best. Use the 6.1 version though as the 6.2 seems to be missing the option to switch from standard to wide cam (no tele option so far afaik). You will want to enable buffer fix and night sight 8.1 alternate mode to get rid of laggy viewfinder though. Ignore the load config thing as it doesn't work or just causes the app to fc.

edit: 6.1 version does switch to tele lens. use the long press switch option. Switch to tele by long pressing the gallery / thumb circle instead of the cam switch (which long press switches to wide). the cam switch changes colors - blue : standard, purple : wide, red : tele

Hello,
i'm very interested to buy the LG V40, but i need that at least one version of Gcam works well.
So, the Arnova's 6.1 works well on both cameras ( rear and front ) with HDR+ enabled ?
No lags or other problems ?
Gcam is better then stock Camera ?
Thanks to all !!

Yes, there are some quirks here n there but it generally works as it should. It does lag but the fixes in the app will sort those out. Alternatively you can use the cstark version. Also works but I find the arnova build switches lenses quicker.

Is it better? If you need to print them pix in humongous sizes, then yes. gCam has better detail retention than stock. If it's just for keeps and regular human sized prints, the LG one does the job fine. It's way faster and more responsive than a ported app. Only plus I can give the gCam over the LG one is NightSight. It's just simply better but also slower.

Thank you !
I've not found a Gcam Developer LG V40 owner, maybe a problem about solving lags, freezes and many other app problems ....... :(
My wife use Gcam port on a Nokia 7 Plus ( Snapdragon 660 ), but is fast and stable.
I'd like to have a fast Gcam also on LG V40, i need a phone with wide angle camera and Microsd, and LG V40 seems perfect for me..... LG V30 has a good Gcam porting, but is older and with smallest camera sensors ... :(

What do you think about battery ? Is good enough to cover one day ?

I've using gCam ports for a while on multiple phones and now with the V40, I finally get the feeling that I don't need gCam that much anymore. With good light, the LG stock cam produces better pictures than a gCam port. They're better exposed and have more pleasing colors. Detail retention isn't a problem since I don't need to see every single Only reason it's still installed is for NighSight. Simply because the black magic google uses for it can't be beat.

Battery life isn't as good as the V30 but decent. Survives an entire day but with very little to spare at the end.

Hi Neocyke thanks for the reply
I'm not sure exactly which APK your referring to on the list (I'm assuming it's a 2019 one)
I'm in Peru ATM but live in Sydney, so I'm going to post lots of photo comparisons on here
Some in Iquitos and Cusco in Peru and also in Sydney
I'm going to compare 4 apps - the lgv30 with cstark pixel 2 gcam, LGV40 stock, and two other gcam mods for the LGV40
Again thanks for your help

Hi again Neocyke
I found another APK last month and it seems to be a really good one
LGN_MGC_6.1.021_Potter_v4F-san1ty-final.apk
Your a lot more knowledgeable than me on these things it would be good if you could look into it and try it out and give me your feedback back, I'd really appreciate that

Find the telegram channel by searching "LG v40 thinq" . There is an apk and config messaged there which works best for me (with stable nightshot etc.)

Thank you for this info! This and learning to install the config file makes this an awesome port. EDIT: Is there a similar trick to choosing which front facing camera to use? I tried the same and it just changes it between front and back. Thanks!

    What?
    I get an unintelligible and dodgy looking response that I think asks for my WhatsApp which also means phone number which is unnecessary
    I'm getting pissed off now
