Google Camera for the OnePlus 5 & 5T



Google Camera OnePlus 5 5TStable Google Camera versions for the OnePlus 5 and 5T, devices with a dual camera setup released by OnePlus in 2017. Stock camera quality is good, but it doesn’t perform well under all conditions and pictures may lack some detail. GCam provides:

  • Better details
  • Better dynamic range
  • Reduced “oil paiting” effected
  • New features: Night sight, Astrophotography, Time lapse, etc

Sadly, due to bugs and limitations on OnePlus software, Google Camera and some other 3rd party apps only work well if a Magisk (root) module is used. Without the fix, your pictures may be affected by a “dot pattern” and some GCam features will be broken.

On this page you can find solutions for rooted (under “Downloads”) unrooted devices (under “No root” below). Thanks to Rohit, shadowstep, Urnyx05, Arnova8G2, thatspix and everyone else involved with GCam on the 5/5T.

Help and more information:

The OnePlus 5 and 5T are “hard” devices, so we can’t thank modders, developers, and testers enough, because they are the reason why Google Camera even opens on this phone.
