I'm thinking of buying Apollo X but I have some doubts:

1 - Does it have an auto focus option when recording videos?

2- In the official website ( http://www.vernee.cc/products/apollox/ ) says that it is possible to record in 1080p @ 60fps. It is really possible?

3- I saw several videos on youtube criticizing the quality of recording videos in both Apollo Lite and Apollo X in the stock version.
In the Lite version a lot of people said that it had a great improvement in the quality of the rear camera with the rom madOS in relation to the stock version.
In Apollo X also had improvement over the stock version?
Are there any specific optimizations for the Sony IMX258 sensor to improve the quality of the recording?

I have te vernee apollo x , personally i would not reccommend it. With all the roms i tried i have major connectivity issues. Every phone call i try to make fails the first time and only works again after a reboot. Battery life kinda sucks, never make it a full day with one charge. Data connection randmoly drops , and only works again after a reboot. Fingerprint sensor doesnt work 7 out of 10 times.

Maybe I'll pick a VAX, seems to be the only MTK with a decent SoC out there (P25 is not bad, but X20 has A72 cores)

Apollo Lite disapponted me in battery, but VAX has a better one. Seems a good upgrade from S3.

And now that MAD is supporting it.

I don't think the Vax is any better than the Val

Just bought a VAX only because MAD-team builds MAD-os for it!
.
Let's hope Oreo will be available quick.
.
When working I'll donate gladly to MAD-team.

Autofocus problem

Just received my VAX and immediately installed MADos 7.1.2
Testing if all works fine I found a problem with focusing of the main camera.

It shows good focus for a short moment and then gets out of focus.
The picture is only in focus at 4 cm distance. (macro pictures)

This happens both in standard Camera app of MADos as well in OpenCamera and WhatsApp.

The problem seems not to occur in selfie camera.

Is this a software problem or a hardware issue?

I wiped dalvik and cache and multiple re-flashes.

Tried different camera apps (Footej, Bacon and “a better camera” ) none had proper autofocus.
I also tried manual focus but that is not working (because lacking of Camera2 API is suppose).

Desperately I flashed Resurrection Remix OS 5.8.3 and autofocus works but buggy.
Often I first have to tap screen for focus point before it focusses right.

RR works fine but it drains the battery in less than 20 hours and,
I bought this phone wanting to use it with MADos.

@devs:
Please make sure that in your Oreo-release autofocus is working perfectly
(and/or it uses Camera2 API).

I will immediately change back to MADos when I can focus the camera.

Reverted back to stock rom to conclude that also has the same autofocus problem.

The camera of this phone is ****. Even VAL makes better pictures. On the paper this camera *should* be better but it isn't in reality on VAX. Probably newbund didn't care to improve the camera quality.
I would just give you the advice to click on the preview and focus it on one point. Autofocus is not working good and manual focus is way better with this camera.

@fire855:
I tested your method.
It works okay in Stock rom and Ressurection Remix but not well in MADos.

As there are other phones using the Sony IMX258
( https://www.kimovil.com/en/list-smartphones-by-lens-model/sony-imx258 )
is it possible to incorporate a part of a rom which working fine with this camera to MADos?

If yes I'll gladly read reviews to find one which is working and inform you

APOLLO Original android 7.1.2 ROM and video recording

We all owners of APOLLO wants to see all camera resolution not only 4K like 720P, 1080P in HEVC h.265 codec. is it possible? Also the camera APP should do Streaming to Youtube, Facebook and RTMP.. is also possible?

This MOD works also on "APOLLO" 4G original? not only in Apollo X?

Its because Vernee don´t care about us, just you do!

You can't manually focus with clicking in the preview? I have the vax myself and that is working fine for me. Also focus in other apps not working in madOS?
Can you upload infos about your phone (flash stock rom before) with the deviceinfomtk app ? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.andr7e.deviceinfohw
Please take screenshots from the general and camera page and upload them.

Possible probably yes but not planned. Streaming won't come in madCamera. You can use third party apps for that.
This ROM works ONLY on Apollo X. Don't flash it on your Apollo.

    Q: When I try to install the ROM it says "Error 7 symlink failed", what gives?
    A: You need to unmount /system first on twrp

    Q: After flashing TWRP says "No OS Installed?"
    A: Ignore this message. If the ROM flash indicated as being successful, you can swipe to reboot and the OS should boot.

    Q: Do i really need full wipes?
    A: Yeah

    A: The ROM, already includes latest APNs, if you still have no active data connection, check your APN settings

    A: It should be comparable to Marshmallow.
    Update: We've already fixed several memory leaks and draining issues

    Hi, when you installed the ROM your bootloader was unlocked? My was and when I was going to turn on the VAX it would display a message that my smartphone would be turned on in 5 seconds, which was about the same time as the lag lasted on the touchscreen.
    But that's only displayed on the boot logo. That's completely different from just turning on the screen
