Test 2: Nighttime Pictures

This demonstrates how the camera behaves at night when using a longer exposure to gather in as much light as possible. We took images using the camera’s Auto setting, as well as manually selecting the Night/Darkness setting. Between those two modes, all phones performed best when they were not using the Night/Darkness setting (leaving it set to Auto), since they had the tendency to come out blurry.

For our night tests, the Maxx Ve jumps up to 1st place (just like it did in our Q2 review), with images being in-focus, properly exposed, and with little grain being shown. The V9m comes in a close 2nd place, with images not being as sharp, due to the lack of an autofocus system, but are still properly exposed. The Voyager is in 3rd, due to some exposure problems and noticeable purple fringing. Coming in 4th is the FlipShot, which had more severe exposure problems and difficulties focusing in low light.

The phone’s performance, sorted from 1st to 4th place:

1) Maxx Ve: Night pictures are the most in-focus and with good exposure.
2) V9m: Images are not as focused as the Maxx Ve, but still have proper exposure.
3) Voyager: Most images looked too dark and there was noticeable purple fringing around bright areas.
4) FlipShot: The “night mode” caused most images to look darker, instead of brighter, and there were problems with the autofocus not working correctly.

Wow.... unbeleivable. The FlipShot is a didicated camera/camcorder phone, and it lost the whole shootout.

The motorola Maxx seemed to have the crispest pictures, the darkness is something that i could live with, becuase the problem with most camera phones today is there pictures are always blurry which makes them unattractive for any use. the only thing i have against the Maxx is what i have against most verzion phones, they ugly uncustomizable U.I. which only comes in RED but most verizonphones suffer from this locked up the a** user interface. maybe one day they will get a clue and make a not 4 year old technology cellphone

I have to say I was shocked that the V9m. Ive had one and thought it didnt take good pix. My Voyager or my Envy takes way better pictures and is so much easier to use and view on!!! And the Flipshot is just kind of a dissapointment all around so Im not shocked at it taking last.

i did the test myself and to my suprise the flipshot has better pics. the flipshot takes better day and night pics so i dont no what these people were doing that the flipshots pics didnt come out clear. dont believe me? go to verizon compare the 4, save the pics to your micro sd and upload to your pc and then you decide for yourself.

excellent test, shows that people overlook motorola. The motorazr 2 is one of the best phones around, and certainly my favorite

I'm shoked MaxxVe was rated so lowly. I have that phone and it is way better than the Voyager. Personally the best camera phone I've ever used is my Blackberry Curve. Crisp and clean even in low light.
