OnePlus smartphones offer excellent value for money, but to achieve that, the company compromises on some features. And one of the major compromises is in the camera department. OnePlus’ 2017 flagships, the OnePlus 5 and 5T are no exception. But a new software mod named OnePlus Camera M is claimed to tweak the camera performance of both the OnePlus 5 and 5T. This camera tweaks the JPEG quality to 100 and also increases the sharpness of the images.
However, this mod comes with a set of limitations. Firstly, to install this OnePlus Camera Mod M, a user should have a rooted OnePlus 5 or 5T with Magisk installed. If you have a rooted OnePlus 5 or 5T, just download the OnePlus Camera M Mod Magisk module by heading over to xda-forums and flash it via the recovery installed (TWRP recovery preferred).
After flashing the module, clear the data, disable & re-enable the OnePlus stock camera application, and you’re good to go. Take a look at the samples from a OnePlus 5T after installing the camera mod.
Having said that, this camera mod works with any smartphone running AOSP-based ROMs such as OmniROM. So, if you have a Xiaomi Redmi Note with AOSP ROM installed with root access, flash this module, and the camera performance of the smartphone may be changed.
Talking about the camera mod, this was released back in December 2017. Since then, the developer has been working on it, and now he claims the mod offers better performance on OnePlus devices when compared to earlier images.
As stated, the OnePlus 5 and 5T offer decent cameras in the price range, but with smartphones such as the Honor View 10 and LG V30+ present in the similar range with slightly better camera performance, OnePlus smartphone users are hunting for better performance, and this mod will help them tweak the camera performance.
