Since the neighboring topic is confusing, open this section and share the working modes of Google Camera, ONLY FOR EXYNOS !!!

Update from iDan (14.10.2018) - 5.1.018.177470874.41362666_IDan_N6_3.5

@Arnova8G2 @cstark27 @idan @miniuser123 @SKULSHADY @saneklic @ldan please anybody develope a working google camera with pixel 2 as configration for exynos version of s9 and s9+. It has such a powerful harware but it is way inferior just due to lacking software. Please developers help us. Google camera works on s8 not on s9. We now have a working google camera just with
nexus 6 algorithm. It produces just ok photos. Also front camera is not working neither in potrait mode nor in hdr+. Please help

Why don't you make a bounty thread ? It will be lot easier of all people to contribute there. We want a perfect google camera with pixel 2 as model alsong with pixel 2 algorithm with all things working. Also one more thing can a developer implement the same potrait mode as pixel 2 with dual pixel technology of s9. I am taking about rear camera potrait of pixel 2 which blurs the background way way more than the front camera algorithm

If you need portrait mode, maybe this apk will work on s9+ too.
On my S9 I'm using the apk from here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1w__75KsBFJlqjziH1UFABelnRdGhI49Y/view
coming from this thread:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s9/themes/google-camera-mod-galaxy-s9-sm-g960f-ds-t3772791
Working portrait mode and photo sphere for main camera. quite stable with the mentioned settings: model to nexus 6 and enable portrait mode all models, other settings on default.
I tried some different apks, but kept this one for stable portrait or photo sphere shots

Brother i am familiar with this one but it has flaws as no front potrait and no front hdr+ or hdr+ enhanced

Adobe Lightroom CC Mobile camera with HDR support on S9+

Hi there,

Is anyone else using Adobe Ligthroom CC mobile app on Exynos S9+ as an alternative to GCAM for HDR photos?
It's free and supports HDR capture on S9/S9+ as part of tech preview.
All you need to do is enable HDR capture mode in options.

Results are stunning both GCAM and LR camera and they both make far better HDR photos compared to Samsung stock app.
I have stable version of GCAM 5.1.018.177470874 but color tinting is ruining the low light photos. This is not a problem with LR cam.

Thanks! You can enable HDR Support under Technology Previews and within the camera view you can make the switch. I will try this today. It looks good so far :D

The only issue I found so far is that it always uses the camera primary rear camera with f/1.5 regardless of the lightning conditions. Same issue as with GCAM.

    Here is my version of Google camera for your device. I added the samsung specific settings live hdr, metering mode, also phase autofocus and optical stabilization. I've also make it work the aperture change so now u can select between 1.5 and 2.4 aperture. When i will some free time i will add also slow shutter options. For front camera it's really hard for me to fix it as long as i would need the device to test and to make more refinements. Later i will try to fix pixel 2017 too!

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=11nPdMkhiytoSOMznGHAGXFx4T6WbjkQM download it from the browser and not from the app to avoid install issues!

    Here is another one version so that pixel and nexus 6 HDR+ can work on your device, however when you deactivate the pixel 2017 toggle you should select nexus 6 model otherwise you won't see anything. It took a huge amount time to fix pixel and nexus 6!
    I added also the refocus option so there is no toggle between portrait and refocus and the toggle to enable the PDAF (phase detection autofocus for dual pixel): on portrait mode the detection could be more precise but don't expect to work on objects beacuse pixel has some extra API for collecting dual sensor data while Samsung doesn't. There are also auto-exposure settings like arnova's but on exynos don't work that good so i will add when i will have some free time the slow shutter options.
    Also stability is improved, at least on my phone (s8) but i don't know on s9.

    Changelog:
    - Fix of errors by reporting logcat from @Barmenchik
    - Test portrait mode

    Needless to say, this does not go without logcat.
    I don't have your device.

    Works on OP6, MI5..

    Arnova GCam mod logcat. for Arnova8G2

    Added the GCam auto-restart on settings changed. Probably like this is more easy so you dont have to restart every time
