It also didn´t work for me. When I tap the shutter it always goes to restart my phone. Which version and which settings do you exactly use, please?

I have read this thread https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-a8-2018/help/google-camera-galaxy-a8-2018-t3840838/page2 and in this post https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=77603383&postcount=170 there is this link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eKlaHEyw97QcOe8_6pgVmmLs0ho31KrK/view with GCam_5.1.018.177470874.41362666__N6_1.8.apk
It`s working for both front and rear cameras (with active HDR too). I have tested literally every option including video and everything works ok and save correctly.
But for some reason even if full 24MP are selected in the settings I only get 8MP pictures which is really frustrating. I`ll continue my search for better working variant.
Here you can see some screenshots >

I'm using Google Camera Idan 1109 ver. 3.2.9 previous SG7Exy_v8 (exynos).
It is important that don't use a flashlight, just turn it off and after install reboot the phone.
Only one custom camera app works. Stock and one custom that's all.

My conclusion even the phone has a 24mpx the camera works terribly.
I have xioami 4x and it bits this A7 2018 as hell in google camera photo compare.

I don't know why the 24mpx camera is so weak.
Wide camera doing a good job :)

Does the portrait mode works for you? For me it reboots the phone.

It`s working alright. Both for rear and for the front camera. Also with or without flash, with or without hdr. Also with burst series (taking pics as fast I can press the button).
As I said in my previous post I tested every single option to see if it`s really stable and at least for me everything works really stable.
The only problem is that it doesn`t save them as 24MP even if it is set in the options. It`s always 8MP size.

Nothing aside in the settings you can see in the screenshot in my earlier post.
The only thing I did may be differently before installation was to turn off the hdr in the build in camera app as per advise from somewhere. After that I went and turn it on and there were no problems at all. So now I have normally working samsung camera app and the gcam one. I can switch whatever I want in the apps and there are no problems.
I also have another camera app - CameraZoomFX (paid) with turned on Camera2 API and it also work ok with every available setting. I have even used them all at the same time to test what would happen - well nothing really. Everything works ok.

From here

Btw yesterday I have tried many other versions for exynos cpus but only GCam_5.1.018.177470874.41362666__N6_1.8.apk worked ok all around.
Most of the other apps crashed on the start or I got to the options but the apps crashed few minutes after that.

I have already wrote it? Camera Zoom FX Premium https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=slide.cameraZoom , but I think that the free version would also let you select this option.

Aside from gcam and camera zoom I am currently testing few other apps:

HD Camera Pro (paid)
LG camera 7.1
Camera FV-5
CameraMX
Open Camera

After more than 700 pictures taken side by side with each app I have come to the conclusion that as for sharpness, details and balanced light HD Camera Pro is the best for indoors and Camera Zoom FX for outside day and night photography.
This ordeal took me over a week to do but was worth it.
The only problems with all these apps is that none of them supports the wide camera, it`s only available in the integrated samsung camera app.

I still hope for some time in the future we will got our hands on fully functional Gcam port with wide camera support. And I think that it would beat all of the above apps. I hope it would happen sooner than later.

I think the same. I hope Samsung will fix this. Is it possible to disable bokeh effect? I hate it because details are terrible

@Kalpsmart7 I somehow missed your post so I apologize for the late reply.
This is my way of fixing the problem.

Go into the apps section to the gcam app and force close it.
Then clear the cache for the app.
Then turn off HDR into the main camera app.
After that start the gcam app - it should start working normally.
Then you can go into the main camera app and turn on HDR again as it would not cause any more problems.

But as I said in my earlier posts although you can set the resolution at 24MP the end result will be in only 8MP.
I don`t know the reason for this problem but for now it`s like that. If I find other working port I`ll test it again.
