I do not know if it happens to you, but I present problems with WhatsApp in sending audio and videos.

It happens to me with versions 17.1 and 18.1..

Is there any chance to fix laggy camera? I found another bug when you zoom in on the camera (original camera / snapchat / instagram) it starts terribly laggy even if I set the camera to a lower resolution (lags on the front and rear cameras), otherwise everything works perfectly except for the camera, good job bro!

+ is it possible to install a genuine Sony camera on Lineage OS which will work?

Is there any way to simple update to the newest version? I tried adb sideload but the device was listed as offline. Am I missing something? I would like to avoid starting from scratch after every update.

I found a new bug when downloading a larger file from Google Play, it is canceled during installation and does not install, I also tried to reinstall Lineage OS 18.1 and the problem still persists

When I turn off the screen the wifi does not work. Its camera is bad compared to android 9. There are slight contractions. Don't you also experience these situations?

first of all i thank to joel16 for effort in this ROM. i flashed joel's LineageOS 18.1 ROM a month ago. i faced with response time issue. when i click an app firstly it responses and runs so slowly, after 10-15 second it's getting cool and fast. i think ROM runs cpu frekans underclocked due to heating issue. i install third party kernel manager nowadays and see if it helps...

    WEEK 1:

    All right, now i used this LOS 18.1 as a dayly driver.
    Of course there are issues to fix BUT we are close to stable.

    The biggest priority is probably to fix the camera problem. Cause you cant use the original app. You must install another camera app. I used the app "open camera" on play store.


    Major issues:
    > Front cam: video recording is super laggy
    > Back cam: zoom makes the live view of camera lagging a lot (for picture or video)
    > Heat: I dont know if it is because of the current hot summer season that the phone heats easier.
    By the way, you will feel more oftenly that the phone is hot in your hands and in your pocket, but compared to stock you can still use all features on the phone without a message "the phone is hot, you cannot use this app".


    Minor issues:
    > battery drain: I feel like the device lose battery quite faster than before (with a new battery) while using it.
    But when you dont use it, you experience the opposite, very less battery draining when not used.
    > Little unstabilities when device is hot (notification bar scrolling is sometimes laggy)
    > Sometimes i experience (twice today) that the screen brightness goes down to 50% (so the screen look darker from 100%) but the settings shows that you are at 100% and you cannot play with it to refresh.This setting works only under 50%, higher it becomes useless. To fix it, you need to reboot.
    > Sometimes you can experience the audio recorder not to work. To fix it, you need to reboot.
    > Sometimes you can a toast message "Error I/O.....". To fix it, you need to reboot.

    Works well:
    Wifi, 4G, Bluetooth, audio jack, SMS, MMS, GPS, fingerprint sensor, proximity sensor.
    I havent tested all sensors but i believe they work.

    With that build:
    For now you should take videos and pictures without zooming with back cam (or it would be laggy)
    By the way Zoom featur is like cropping the big picture since it is not a physical lens zoom.
    IT DOES everything you need in your day so enjoy and dont be scared to install this rom.

    My recommandation:
    On front camera: You should stick with only selfies. (video recording is laggy).
    On back cam: Never zoom

    Globally i'm happy from this build, i feel the purpose of Lineage OS (Privacy) on my 5 yo device !
    With the latest Version of android (design, live display and dark mode) benefits.

    NO GAPPS AND NO ROOT. Just Lineage OS 18.1

    I'm happy that we can live without google nowadays !

    Change-log:

    - Updated to lineage 18.1 sources.

    Another thing I noticed is that the snap camera isn't as bugged as it was in the previous 18.0 release. This release seems more towards the "stable" side of things for me although I didn't extensively test it (do let me know if you come across any issues). I'll wait for reports of any other issues before marking it as stable. Lineage also hasn't started rolling any official builds for 18.X either, so I would like to wait on that as well.
