You should never settle for a lesser quality camera. 

If you are on one of the earlier generations of OnePlus devices such as the OnePlus 5 and 5T you can use this little upgrade to your camera that will greatly improve the level of detail and crispiness of your shots.

Here’s what you’ll gain once you upgrade:

  1. Loss of watercolor effect –  enthusiasts mean this to be the effect of being washed out, looking like an oil painting. Your photos will look less washed out and more detailed.
  2. JPEG quality changes to 100 by default – meaning an increased sharpness is adapted to your photos before it is processed. You can adjust this level of sharpness manually later in your Settings.

What you’ll need

 

Note 

Make sure to uninstall any updates for your stock OnePlus Camera app. Simply just jump into your Google Play Store app  Settings  Apps  OnePlus Camera  Disable & Re-enabled back the Camera app. 

Now let’s go get your camera a new upgrade.  

 

 

How to Improve Camera Resolution & Photo Quality on OnePlus 5/5T: 5 Steps

 

Step 1:  Go ahead and jump on the link below (it’s safe, nothing in it for me) to get the Camera M Magisk mod onto your OnePlus. It’s basically the file that gets your camera to be upgraded. Download the .zip file.

Step 2:  Great! Now, open up your Magisk Manager app (the one you had installed) and then from the side menu, tap on Modules. Then tap on the little yellow + button that is to the bottom of your screen.

Help! I accidentally closed out of the flashing screen. 😨

Not to worry! Simply just restart your phone like you always do through the power menu and you’ll be back. 🙂

 

Step 5:  Once the module is installed, you can go ahead play around with your stock Camera app as you normally would  but your Camera will take higher-quality photo now. 

 

That’s it!
