Although the various smartphone OEMs strive to insert 1000 sensors at a photographic level, the Google Camera represents a point of reference for photography from mobile devices, demonstrating that only one (but good) lens and excellent software are enough to manage the background. of a photographic shot. 

Thanks to the developers and modders, the GCam software has become part of the kit of a large part of smartphones, once exclusive to Qualcomm chipsets, while with the advent of Redmi Note 8 Pro, even the MediaTek CPU was able to test its potential.

But with today we do not want to retrace the potential offered by the GCam software, but rather tell you about a port that is aimed at many models of smartphones in circulation that precisely offer more sensors to their range of photographic sector, but which until now have not could be exploited, precisely because the Google Camera is designed for use with only one lens (at least up to the third generation of Google Pixel). 

Well, the latest update of one of the most popular GCam ports by users has instead introduced the possibility of using all the sensors on the smartphone.

new GCam Mod

The new GCam Mod allows you to take advantage of all the camera sensors without the need for ROOT

Therefore, users will now be able to decide whether to also enable the wide-angle, tell, and macro sensors. The smartphones supported by the new GCam Mod are:

Asus Zenfone 6, OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7T Pro, OPPO A5 2020, Realme 3 Pro, Realme 5 Pro, Xiaomi Redmi 7, but also many other smartphones considering that the devices mentioned certainly do not have the CPU in common, yet the same mod can be installed and used without problems.

To use the GCam Mod, you must first download and install it on your device by clicking on the button at the end of the article. At this point, you need to download the configuration file for your smartphone by clicking on this link. If you don’t know how to load configuration files you can follow the thread available on the developer’s help page at this link.

Once the configuration file is loaded, the application will automatically restart allowing you to enable support for auxiliary cameras. To do this, you will need to access the “Advanced” section in the GCam settings and tap the “auxiliary camera” option. 

In the window that will be proposed to you, you will be able to enable auxiliary cameras by tapping the switch next to them. If you follow all the steps correctly, you should see the aux camera buttons on the viewfinder as shown in the screenshot above.

How To Install GCam on POCO F2 Pro

We have recently had the honor and the fortune to try POCO F2 Pro, a smartphone that at an affordable price reflects the true essence of the top of the range currently on the market, but what was perhaps undertone was the photographic sector and relative yield, excellent when compared to the mid-range of the market but out of line as far as the most famous camera phones are concerned.

Fortunately, one of the many mods of the GCam is available to excite us, which in many cases improves the photographic situation of the flagship of the Chinese company. Could we not try it?

Of course not and so here is a guide on how to install it and the results obtained compared with the stock camera of the POCO F2 Pro.

GCam on POCO F2 Pro: here’s how to install it and comparison with the stock camera

The procedure that we list, moreover, fits perfectly with many other smartphones of the Xiaomi / Redmi brand and therefore could be useful in the future, except for the version of the GCam that you are going to install, since there are several developers and dedicated to different models, with different CPUs.

That said, for our POCO F2 Pro we opted for the GCam version of Urnyxos5 which you can download by clicking on the button below, as well as downloading the configs file (further button below) which will serve to optimize the various settings of the GCam Mod We have chosen the specific configs file for Redmi K30, which in fact uses the same photographic sensor as POCO F2 Pro, therefore compatibility is guaranteed. You can download it directly from your smartphone.

GCAM 7.3 LITTLE F2 PRO

CONFIGS GCAM FILE 7.3 LITTLE F2 PRO

Once downloaded the two files that will have the name GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v1.9.apk and k30_phoenix.xml (you should find them inside the Downloads folder of your device) you can click directly on the apk of the GCam just downloaded and proceed to the installation of the same.

You may need to grant permission to install content from alternative sources to the File Manager if you have not previously granted them. After the installation at this point, you can verify that the GCam works without crash but to optimize it to the best you have to follow some steps to apply the previously downloaded configs file.

  • Go to File Manager;
  • Click on the folder icon at the top;
  • Click on the three dots next to the 4 squares symbol of the Internal Shared Memory item;
  • Click on Create a new folder;
  • Give the name GCam;
  • Inside the newly created GCam folder you have to create another one, with the same method just described and name it Configs7;
  • Now you have to move the k30_phoenix.xml file (which you should find inside the Downloads folder) inside the Configs7 folder;
  • At this point the GCam app and double click on the black part next to the shutter button;
  • A window will open in which you will select the newly loaded configs file. Now click on RESTORE.

The time has come to compare the potential of the GCam compared to the performance of the POCO F2 Pro stock camera. In natural lighting conditions, the comparison is a clear advantage of the shots obtained by the GCam, returning more real shades and above all, they are better defined by all the details of the framed subject.

Suffice it to see for example the photo of the flower where the orange is warmer and above all the small spots on the petal are perceptible. Even in the case of lilac flowers, it is possible to note how the GCam has succeeded better in the enterprise, while the stock room seems to have gone into confusion, returning a sort of pastel and confused colors. In the panoramic photo, the results seem to be quite similar,

Analyzing the shots taken in macro mode, the differences between the two camera apps become very thin, even if it is possible to see better management of contrasts and lights when using the GCam.

For example, note on the photo with the white flower, which in the case of shooting with a stock camera results in a more “flattened” image, as well as in the image of the coins it is possible to appreciate a greater depth of colors and reliefs always in favor of the GCam.

In the case of a selfie shot, the problems of the proprietary software come out all, as the skin tone is not realistic, always presenting a “ceramic” effect.

The cropping in the case of portrait mode is appreciable on both software, but the advantage of the GCam lies precisely in the better processing of the whole image framework, as well as the framed subject. In the case of the stock camera, in fact, in the distance, elements are often “burnt” by the high lights as well as a slight photographic noise.

Where instead the stock camera works best is in the case of night selfies, as the virtual flash used on GCam is too high thus returning a “flat” effect to the framed subject.

Conclusions

I have not analyzed the aspect related to the wide-angle, but I can tell you that the results are similar to what has been reported so far with the other sensors.

Net of what we have said, the GCam greatly improves the final yield of the shots in the vast majority of situations but leaves us thinking about the fact that in PRO mode, the stock camera allows you to obtain shots that are nothing short of beautiful, on an equal if not higher than what is offered by GCam in Astro mode.

Certainly, the advice is to install the GCam on your device, because the photos will gain a lot in terms of details while for all the rest what matters is your imagination, only with that you will have photos that will excite even the coldest of hearts.

Google Camera Mod For OnePlus 8

Although there are some mods for the OnePlus camera circulating on the Internet, most only allow access to the main sensors. Is that if you want to have access to others you will have to root your smartphone, which may not be ideal for some users.

Fortunately, a very popular Google Camera mod created for the OnePlus 8 by a user called “Urnyx05” allows access to much more than the main sensor. This without needing root. It is true that we do not have access to all the lenses of the OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro. It still represents good progress!

Google Camera mod for OnePlus 8 works wonders without root!

The mod for OnePlus 8 created by Urnyx05 now allows access to the main sensor, the telephoto, and the ultra-wide-angle. The macro camera is still locked, unfortunately. The same happens with the OnePlus 8 Pro. It is possible to access the main, the telephoto, and the ultra-wide-angle. However, the sensor responsible for the color filter is not working.

For everything to go well you will need to give the application permission to access all lenses. Is that defect can access only the main ones. So to activate everything you are entitled to go to Settings> Advanced> Auxiliary camera in this alternative application. Then change the options “Telephoto” and “Large” to the “On” position. This gives you access to the three lenses.

You can get more information and download it here.

However and since we talk about this equipment we remember that OnePlus has already launched Android 11 Beta with OxygenOS.

This means that anyone with OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro can download and install the updated software on their devices. The release is part of the developer preview program.

However, although the software is available for download, this does not necessarily mean that you must do so. There are a number of notices that come with this version including the possibility to block a device on which the beta version is installed.

In addition, there are other problems that clearly reveal that this version is for developers who want to use Android 11. It is not for end-users to install on smartphones they use daily.

fotocamera anteriore OnePlus 7 Pro

OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro have rear cameras with three sensors capable of making good quality shots, improved over previous models. The camera has always been the Achilles heel of the Chinese company’s devices and with the Google camera app, you could notice significant improvements.

Before starting it is good to specify that the port of the GCam app could present some bugs for which you must be aware that the port may not work properly.

OnePlus has greatly improved image quality compared to the previous generation OnePlus camera apps. However, Google Camera is better and also quite powerful.

The single-camera on the Pixel device is very effective and powerful to offer the best image and video quality with AI functionality. Google Camera offers a simple but exceptional user interface and settings that bring Night Sight, Portrait, HDR + Enhanced mode, Google Lens, etc.

There are some developers who are working hard to build the new official GCam app for other Android device models. OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro are the latest OnePlus devices to receive the port of the Pixel 3 Google Camera.

It has some additional features like Photosphere, HDR + Mode, Lens Blur, AR Stickers and more.

As mentioned above, Google focuses on camera software rather than camera lens or hardware. The powerful software Google Camera is able to offer sharp and clear images with AI mode compared to other devices.

To install Google Camera on your OP 7 and 7 Pro, it is not necessary to root the device. However, you need to install a configuration file via internal memory. Follow the steps carefully:

Step 1:

  • First, you need to download the GCam APK file and the configuration file.
  • Move both files to the device’s internal memory.
  • Then, open the file manager on your device and look for a folder called ‘GCAM’in the internal root folder. If the folder is not available, create it with the same name. (It’s important)
  • Now, go to the folder ‘GCAM’and create another folder called ‘Configs’.
  • Now move the Config.XML file in the Configs folder.

Step 2:

  • Install the Google Camera APK file normally on your device.
    • If the app asks you to enable the option of unknown sources, you need to enable it and install GCam.
  • After installing the Google Camera app, just launch it and provide all the required permissions.
  • Now double-tap the blank area around the camera shutter button and you’ll get a popup like the option “Choose configuration”.
  • Finally, choose the config.xml file that you moved earlier and then tap the button “Restore”.

You are now ready to easily use the Google Camera app on your OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7 Pro. In addition, you can make some changes to the settings even from the hamburger icon at the top left or from the option Other from the line above the shutter button. Also, touch and change the connection settings on the screen to find the best one for you.

If, for any reason, you are experiencing forced termination of the Gcam app, try these settings to try to resolve:

  • Choose Nexus 6P in the options for the front camera model
  • Select YUV format (you can also select this option to increase performance)

Now, you have successfully installed Google Camera on your OnePlus 7/7 Pro phone. When a new version of GCam is available, just uninstall this app and install the new version as shown above.
