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

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