I making this thread for Realme X2 Gcam 7+ because the settings and tweaking are a bit different from the the 6.2 and 6.3 Here
This is to avoid confusion as I won't have time to do tweaks on both 6+ and 7+ so, that it.

After trying over 25 different Gcam ports, I finally got a Gcam 7.2 that works for Realme X2 but you have to tweak the settings like I did to get the best.
The full tutorial is on YouTube Here:

I will drop some camera samples and the screenshot of my settings here incase you don't have time to watch the tutorial.

While you are there, you can also watch Adobe photoshot camera for Realme X2 too. I was surprised it worked fine.

It blew away the stock cam in Night sight there is no need to talk about the Astrophotography and I didn't bother uploading the samples comparisons between Night scape and Astrophotography - it's not a fair fight. But you can see it in the video.
Low noise, more details, close to real life color reproduction, and ability to tweak makes this 7.2 a thing of joy.
Still no 4k video but 1080p 30/60fps works fine.
No slow motion and wide angle lens too.
Apart from these, everyother thing works fine.

Great credits to @Urnyx05 who ported the camera for ( several devices) of which realme-x2 isn't one of.

I added a new seperate Youtube video tutorial Mastering Gcam v7.2 Advanced Settings for Realme X2
So you can watch that if you want to get the best images from your Gcam.

I am adding the direct link of the of the Gcam 7.2 by Unryx05 I used to be sure some people don't download the wrong one and have other issues I didn't experience. As I said in the video, I've tested over 25 different Gcam ports so make sure you are using the exact one I am using so as to Easy replicate the issues you are experiencing with my device. And talking about devices mine is Realme X2 EU Version (8/128G) RMX1993.

You can download it Here from the thread. Version 7.2. 010 was the one I tested.

Hi, thank you so much for the detailed guide and feedback, I'm waiting/looking for a version with slow motion and wide lens working, but still had no success. Please let we know if you find something.:fingers-crossed:

For those who are looking for a working Gcam, I am working on one with the great devs for Gcam including Urnyx05. The problem with Realme and BBK devices are they do not have correct color for gcam to process. Arnova helped greatly to fix it, and Cstark's apk works somewhat now. Also we will never be able to access the ultrawide lens or any other lens as Realme did not grant camera2 ID or access to them. Potentially root could work, but I am rooted but nothing works. We really need a kernel dev for our devices.

It took a lot of testing and trying with plenty crashes and issues to come up with the v1. 4 as the best for Realme X2 for now. I am still trying and testing more especially for wide angle...

I almost gave up on Gcam because of that 'annoying' color processing from realme. But once I learnt to tweak it, I got a higher saturation with Gcam more than the stock cam, I knew that the Realme X2 has a great future with custom Roms. We just have to wait at least for Indian lunch on 17th Dec and maybe the customization will bloom.

    Hello,Thankyou for such a good video guide!
    I have my settings all set as you said.
    Bt the Gcam crashes after taking a photo.
    Thoughts?

    TIA

    Turn off motion pictures and make sure your
    Google photos is up to date.
    Clearing app data might help.
    Also let me know what operation you carry out before it crashes.

    Added additional screenshots of my settings and tweaks. When I am less busy I'll write the full details here but until then, you can watch the video tutorial for now.
