Now, let us take a look at the best Magisk Modules you should try in 2021
Volume Steps Increase
I don’t know if you have noticed this, but by default, the Android OS allows for only 15 steps between max and min volume (You can check out for yourself). However, it can be different, provided that your OEM has changed it. This can be a bit annoying for many users, as, in some smartphones, the difference between one step and the second step could be louder or lower than expected.
But, with the help of Magisk Modules, you can go about and increase the volume steps to a maximum of 30, which gives you more flexibility in choosing the right volume level on your device. Moreover, you can get this feature for both Media as well as In-call volume as well. This can be a significant feature for people who use their smartphones with their headphones on.
Ever wondered how you can install third-party apps on your device as system applications. One of the main advantages of this would be, no one could uninstall the application on your device. This also gives you an extra layer of security for security-based apps like app lock, etc. Moreover, some apps perform better, provided that you give them extra system permissions. Note that the App Systemizer will not modify or tweak the system partition so, you cannot save space on your internal storage. Besides, you will be able to update all of your third-party apps via the Play Store as usual.

Google Pixel smartphones are something that most people prefer even though the sales figure shows Samsung on top. The Pixel device’s stock Android experience is something that I personally like, and many other users prefer it. There are already so many mods and ports from the Pixel devices, like the ever so popular Google camera port or the GCam, or the stock launcher itself. However, a Pixel Experience Magisk Module brings in the stock Android UI on your device.

Camera 2API Enabler Module
One of the best Magisk Module available for Android devices is the Camera 2API enabler. The reason behind its popularity is that Google Modded camera port or GCam apps can be installed only on devices with Camera 2API enabled.

GCam is the best camera mod APK that enhances the image quality and gives you features like Night mode, HDR+, and seamless Portrait mode.
