lightning9, 18 Oct 2020Does this work on any Android 10 phone?Nope. Night Sight mode/feature of GCam generally won't work on phones with Mediatek, Kirin and Exynos based processors. Phones with non-snapdragon processors above may have GCam ports but these ports usually have limited functionality and availability. Most, if not all, don't have a working Night Sight mode, which is the most important GCam feature as it greatly improves low light shots where most other default camera apps struggle to provide any usable image. GCam with Night Sight was designed for Pixel phones which have snapdragon based processors and which run on Oreo and above (camera2api enabled).

So if you have Nougat and are using a phone with Kirin, Mediatek or Exynos processor, you're out of luck, at least not until Google releases a Pixel phone with Kirin, Mediatek, or Exynos processor.

lightning9, 18 Oct 2020Does this work on any Android 10 phone?Only works on phones with the camera2 API enabled;
Mod compatible with modern Snapdragon SoCs. Some versions work on some Exynos, Kirin, and Mediatek phones, but usually with limitations.
ARM64, only very old versions (GCam 4) support 32 bit;
Recent apks may not work on older Android versions.

Nadia Muneer , 17 Oct 2020Me live in Pakistan, Okay Then Explain GCam And Kindly Give... moreBecause the A71's night mode even if it yields good results with the main camera, is no match to GCam on Night Sight. And also, the GCam with Night Sight works for the selfie camera and the ultrawide camera, and not only the main camera; not like phone's default night mode which is limited to the main camera. I've provided GCam installation details below. Try it and you'll see just how superior GCam with Night Sight is, compared to night mode on the default Samsung camera app of the A71. GCam is one of the reasons why I avoid Exynos processors. The other being Exynos processors are inferior to their snapdragon equivalents in processor performance and power handling.

Shoot low light selfies in Night Sight and you'll see just how excellent GCam on the A71 is. It produces clear images even when the native camera app and other phones produce nothing but black.

As for the main rear camera, enable astrophotography in Night Sight, and you'll realize just how poor the default camera app is even with night mode enabled. Try the GCam above in Night Sight and you'll realize why GCam's Night Sight is superior to anything else including the most expensive iPhone's night mode.

Had this phone for 4 months, i love it but its bent quite bad and I've never sat on it or anything just noticed today it looks really bent on one side pretty disappointed with the build quality weaker than an iPhone 6. I've only ever had it in my side pocket and never dropped it from high up.

Nadia Muneer , 16 Oct 2020And A71 Worst Vibrant Display Hurts Eyes And It's Call... moreSamsung's Amoleds are actually one of the best amoled displays around if not the best. And the one on the A71 has excellent brightness even under bright sun. If it hurts your eyes, you need to reduce the display brightness or you can have your eyes checked.

Nadia Muneer , 16 Oct 2020A71 Has most Vibrant colors and Colors Saturation is So Hig... moreYou obviously don't own the phone or know how to use its cameras. You can even sideload GCam with Night Sight on this phone which produces the best low light photos - better than the phone's default night mode. Your Huawei can't compete with GCam with Night Sight on this phone. Besides, a phone without a Google Play future renders the phone inutile unless you live in China.
