Report: iPhone 11 Camera Beats Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S10, OnePlus 6T in Night Mode Competition

Apple was late to the Night Mode party, but it still beat every other company, including Google.

Taking photos in low light has always been a challenge for smartphone users. Tech companies including Google and Samsung have been competing to launch the best smartphone camera features that would make it easier for users to capture pictures in dark mode. But it seems Apple has finally won the battle with its Dark Mode in iPhone 11.

iPhone 11 Camera: Night Mode Beats Every Other Phone's Low-Light Mode

When Dark Mode was announced for iPhone 11, most experts said that despite its hype it won’t be able to beat Google’s “Night Sight” mode that was launched for Pixel phones last year. But latest tests run by PCWorld show that Apple’s iPhone 11 Night Mode clearly beats Google’s Night Sight and other low-light camera features made by Samsung, LG, OnePlus and Huawei.

PCWorld compared iPhone 11 Night Mode with 3 other phone cameras. iPhone 11, in every case, delivered much better photo results.

In absence of light, iPhone 11 Night Mode creates extremely good images, compared to other phones, which give below-average results. According to the report, OnePlus Night Mode delivered the worst results.

In one instance, where objects were moving, Google Pixel beat iPhone 11, as iPhone Night Mode results were blurry. But when the same objects stopped moving, iPhone 11 results were better than Google Pixel’s.

Samsung’s Night Mode fails when it comes to capturing figures and shapes in dark. Google Pixel was able to deliver excellent detailed results of complex images. But iPhone 11 beat every other phone.

Another advantage of iPhone 11 Night Mode comes from the design aspect. As shutter speed declines in low-light modes, users have to wait for a few seconds before they can take the next photo. iPhone 11 tells exactly how many seconds a user has to wait, while other phones, including Google Pixel, forces the user to hold the phone steady for a random period of time.

Overall, the report sums up the results in a sentence, “Apple’s Night Mode makes Night Sight look amateurish.”
