ColorSageASUS sent phones to developers so they could some cool projects could work well on this phone. It's the main reason why I picked this phone over others, with price and functionality (sd card, headphone jack) coming second.
First, the double-negation it the title states positive. Second, you can't expect official Google Camera support l because it's their proprietary software. There's no source code available and it can be only shipped with Google Pixels. There are two unofficial modders trying to make it useable but they have to use workarounds for everything.

S4tI second this the only reason asus is a failure in sales is due to their rigidness of not improving and taking feedback. Look at One Plus. Though i dont want to compare. But i still remember asus was marketing this device by sharing videos of the developers who went through so much to create this marvelous device. But now it all seems like a marketing gimmick. They just gave android 10 in a hurry to make it up with the competitors but messed their main reason for this device is their camera. Since the upgrade the camera is below average and it's not accepted with a flagship device. If rog 2 is your main focus then why take out devices and then get messed up. I must say this is taking asus steps behind in being the best mid range flagship brand.

While no one expects ASUS to create an official Google Camera app for this phone or a 100% stable build of LineageOS, they sent those devices for a reason. They should now keep things simple and make the life of these guys easier, specially when so far ASUS can't do a good job with their camera app, even though it has a good sensor.
The Google Camera port, versions 7.1 and 7.2, works well on Android 10 running on phones from brands like Xiaomi. It was working well on this phone on Android 9 and apparently stopped working after one of the Android 10 betas. The difference is that we know for a fact that Xiaomi tests and makes changes on their side so GCam works better, while ASUS probably doesn't.
If ASUS can't improve the camera quality on this phone, they should at least try not to break the alternatives we are essentially forced to use due to their incompetence. It's not acceptable, on a phone were the camera was the main feature, to have an official app that can't deal with big dynamic ranges, have an HDR Enhance technology that screw ups the image if there is too much movement, or creates images from the 2nd camera that looks like what I was getting from a phone 4 or 5 years ago.
Also, if someone from ASUS reads this, keep in mind that the Asia trend to have soft and blury images is not popular everywhere. Google, for example, is praised for their image quality and images are sharp.

ColorSageGoogle Camera was working on Pie because they had the phone and made it work. Apparently it was working on Android 10 beta, but it stopped working after one update.
Guys, I'm not saying that Asus can't do anything about their camera and I do understand they sent their devices to developers. If you feel they're not doing anything even though they took the phone, go to XDA forums.

gunmanrishiTrue....Dynamic range WAS AND IS an issue they need to deal with and artificial light performance is not upto the mark
It is a issue with asus if you understand what that logcat states. The stock camera also has massive issues to start with tint and no dynamic range. I think that's not a problem from asus as well. I guess i have to reach out to Flipkart right.
