I just purchased an Xperia 5 expecting Lightroom Mobile to function fully with it, however the HDR option has been removed compared to my previous phone.

I looked around and apparently only some phones are supported? Is there somewhere to see a list of phones that support the feature?

With the snapdragon 855/6GB of RAM and camera API 2 support etc. there seems to be no reason this shouldn't work easily on this phone. Is there any way to enable it? And it seems weird to limit it, it's quite disapointing for it to not be an option at all even if it were hidden in advanced settings or something.

Thank you,

Well you can still use the original app camera and then import to the Lightroom, or using the open camera/ Gcam to take your photo.

Hi filipe, unfortunately I don't think any of these other applications support RAW HDR unfortunately and Lightroom would be the only way to access it if it were enabled.
