Low-light camera comparison between the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S5, iPhone 6, and HTC One M8

Low-light camera

Two days ago, we showed you how the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M8 fared against each other in Samsung's own low-light box setup (which is actually a small composition within and two holes big enough for a smartphone camera to peek in and take a picture). In that exact test, Samsung asked us not to use any flash and also make use of several different camera modes.

We simply can't take enough of this low-light camera setup, so we took a few other phones and we returned! This time around, we took an iPhone 6, an HTC One M8, a Galaxy S5, and, of course, one of the more interesting and well-designed Android flagship of late, the Galaxy S6 edge. The latter, which we expect to perform pretty well in low-light conditions. The reason for this is, naturally, the wide lens of the rear snapper, which has a pretty large aperture of f/1.9, one of the larger in the industry now.

Larger aperture means more light inside the sensor, which leads to better-looking photos - that's on theory, but is the Galaxy S6 edge that good in low-light conditions in real life? Well, check out the test shots that we took and feel free to share your opinion.

Note: The samples right below are full-sized, so you might need to wait a little before they load. Sorry.
