Well, my temporary solution was to install a 32bit GCAM V3 version with HDR+ function implemented (google search "32bit gcam HDR+"). It works pretty well, even in low light conditions, but, unfortunately, the HDR+ functionality doesnt work after a certain amount of time (it works flawlessly if you do not close the app), and you must then clear the app data and restart it. This is actually the only way to get near-perfect camera results in SFOS!

@delocoyo you only need to have Android app support (full SFOS license). When you download the .apk file (idk if I can post any link for that), just execute it, and it will automatically be installed.
