If you are trying to pick the best Snapdragon 855 device for GCam, I would actually suggest the OnePlus 7 Pro. The IMX586 is probably the best widely available sensor that so many GCam developers have access to that it is probably as optimized as a Pixel now. Plus it is a better sensor than what's in the S10 and G8.I'm confused about front camera support. Some people said it stopped working because Samsung killed RAW support in an update, then I heard someone found a workaround. But then it seemed unclear if that workaround was just for Exynos editions and required root... I'm trying to get to the bottom of this as I'm deciding between a used snapdragon S10 or LG G8 (where everything works perfectly with Gcam), and a working gcam is high on my priority list.
(and no, I don't want to just buy a pixel, before someone suggests that again lol)
Hey, did you ever figure something out? I have the same issue - just got an S20 Ultra Exynos with stock OneUI 4.1, but the telephoto camera does not seem to work with BSG/Wichaya/Zoran/Arnova... I've specifically tried camera IDs 20, 21, 23, 50, 52, 80 with Zoran's ZGCAM 7.4 (com.samsung.android.scan3d signature), but they all either give a black screen or crash.After reading through various posts and threads regarding Gcam on S20 I am still puzzled what exactly is working and what isn't.
What I used to have:
- Galaxy S10 Exynos with LOS 17.1, ZGCAM and modified "libexynoscamera3.so": => Front, Back, Wide, Tele working perfectly with zgcam 7.4 and 6.1
I recently bought a
- Galaxy S20 5G Exynos with Stock Firmware, MGC_8.1.101_A9_PV0n: => Front, Back, Wide working perfectly with gcam 8.1; TELE is not working !
Is there a way to get telephoto working on S20 Exynos e.g. by modified lib ?
Will the situation change if I switch to LOS 18.1 ?
Thx in advance for any clarification.
Up, as the latest Zoran ZGCam hasn't been mentioned since its release 9 months ago...
On Android 13, Hasli's LMC8.4_R15 does 4K video on the tele, yes.
