Hopefully, neobuddy89 can fix it along with new 8.6 update. Sorry out of topic, that's a nice screen protector you have in there, perfectly fit to the front camera, and I assume it's a matte finish? Where did you buy it?
Yeah, hopefully, he can fix it on the next update. Fingers crossed! 🤞

As for the screen protector, it's a tempered glass from Supershieldz. I bought it on Amazon. Fits like a glove! 👌

Updated to the latest version
Like others here, at 1st boot I had a frozen screen with the crdroid logo. Had to reflash gapps for it to boot properly
Now all is working except from Play Store, which tells me I do not have connection (all other apps work well)

Any ideas?
Experienced this every time I dirty flashed. Search for Google Play Store APK and install it, after that it worked for me. But I had issues with other Google apps as well, so I clean flashed latest version.

You must go to the application information. Then go to the wifi and data option and allow network access.

Pixelization.
I noticed that the icons in my Note 10 Pro look pixelated compared to a Oneplus 8T with same resolution.
Is it a setting that I have accidentally changed? Is it this ROM? Or is it the phone itself?

- randomly longer unlocking the phone, up to a few seconds
- there is a problem with touch and lag from the beginning. It is not the fault of the phone and the screen, but the software, because it worked super fast on the ArrowOs 11 ROM
- it is not possible to read the permissions of the Google application with the help of which side we can disconnect - connected applications
- after a few days the system catches the wakelock for no reason, and uses up the batteries extremely. Double rebooting only helps, but after another couple of days there is a wakelock
- App permissions disappear from time to time after restarting and need to be granted again. For example, it applies to the management of all files. (I wonder if that's not the wakelock problem here.)

Nice observation, though a bit out of topic.

It's the phone, cheaper OLED, even with support of higher frame rates. It happens with other rom or original MIUI as well.

Thanks. I agree it was a bit out of topic, but I had a hope that there was a setting in this ROM I had missed. To be honest, I didn't notice it the little that I used stock.
Bummer, as the reviews were saying that the display is awesome...

It's awesome, for its price. I think we should keep our expectation with the device price range, don't we? Comparing with OP 8T, RN10P is certainly way out its league. Besides, I don't think human eyes will look at those icons in that zoom level.

It reminds me a bit of the energy-saving option you can find in the crdroid-settings. Its called "smart pixels" and just turns off a certain percentage of pixels.

You are right! It was that. It was enabled (probably my bad). It is much better now!
Thanks again

Great bunch of work with the Miui cam and possible Gcam mods and settings!

I am an owner of Redmi 10 pro, with a fresh custom OS installed (the latest CrDroid 8 based on A12). The OS includes a Miui cam which works pretty well. I also tested four or five GCam ports, starting from the latest Shamim V24. This one and PXv8.1_GCam-v1.2 work fine, except some quirks. Some others among the well regarded mods just did not install (Parrot) or, to my regret, show no image when installed (BSG, LMC).

I made some test shots with those ones which work, out of the box: Miui cam, Shamim V24 and PXv8.1. And I quickly acknowledged that the main cam renders nicely large close objects, but everything at distance of 7 meters and more is just a noisy mess, as if I was using a kind of digital zoom and not a quality front cam. I tested this in all the mentioned mods, and the result is always bad. Miui 108Mp mode gives better detail, but still unacceptable for such a large sensor. Did you try to make landscape shots with your front camera and what experience did you have with it?

Before unlocking the bootloader, I tested the native Miui cam, and the result was better: sharper and with more clear detail. So, is there is something wrong in the OS which does not let the camera work as it should, or need I a dedicated apk or a set of settings to fix that, or is the phone camera physically optimized to make detailed close-up shots while compromising far field?

In the next post I'll attach several crops to give a better idea I am terrified with.

So here is the scenery which includes a shadow part and a very well lit one. The original idea was to test how different camera mods stand such a constrast.
IMG_20220627_134821_s.jpg


In all the cases I tap-focused the camera on the distant tree. And when I zoomed I was shocked to discover that what was supposed to be infinity in focus is rendered in a kind of pretty nasty digital approximation. The crops come from several mods and represent a billboard and a part of another tree, as long as this piece of the scene is even more representative to show what I mean.

1) default Miui cam settings, 2) default Shamim V24 settings, 3) 108Mp Miui cam mode.

IMG_20220627_190407_crop.jpg


The 108Mp crop looks clearer but in no way more natural. There is clearly much of interpolation, as if the original shot was made with a 5Mp camera from the early 2000s and then upscaled to 20Mp, other than downscaled from 108Mp to 12Mp.

Just to compare, here is a crop from a Moto Cam 2 installed on an old Moto G7 plus, with default settings. The shot is not the most detailed overall, but clearly keeps more natural image structure and could be better post-processed if necessary.

Trying to understand if the problem consists in a physical optimisation of the lens to close-ups thus condemning infinity resolution, I took a page of an old newspaper and took a shot with different cams in order to see how they resolve complex close-up objects. I am blue to say that the result is petty much the same.

Here is a comparison of crops coming from 1) Shamim and once again from the 2) old Moto cam on G7 plus. Moto is optically better and more clear, including less digital artifacts.

So I have a suspicion that in custom OS, at least in CrDroid 8 the camera is not used properly and only a part of the sensor is employed and the result is interpolated.

What is your experience with infinity landscape and close-up text shots? How to fix it, maybe a correct XML heals this issue?

Given I got this phone to use well its camera, I am pretty much upset with the first results and would really appreciate your expertise and suggestions.

    Thanks. every thing is fine now.. But where is call recording option?

    Attached
    Root required
    Use this app to enable call recording on google dailer
    Need google dailer latest beta


    Or
    https://github.com/di72nn/callrecorder-axet

    Or
    Record calls in Google Dialer
    ( without root + without letting the other person know )

    NOTE : Make sure your contacts and call logs are synced with your Google account inorder to recover them later.

    > TTSLexx install via playstore.
    > go to settings > about phone > enable developer options by tapping 7 times on build number
    > search "preferred engine" and set it as the TTSLexx as the preferred option.
    > clear cache and data of Google dialer
    > you can either keep the app or uninstall it as per your preference!
