Night


Even at night, or in scenes where light is very scarce, the camera on the Google Nexus 5 can be more than usable. We won't call it the best one out there, but it definitely does get the job done. Well-illuminated scenes look quite good, with tolerable amounts of digital noise and no motion blur caused by shaky hands. However, the LG G2 is better at taking night photos. Its night images are detailed, blur-free, and with pretty accurate color representation. The iPhone 5s, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and the Samsung Galaxy S4 are almost as potent, especially when the last two have their night modes enabled. This time around, the Nokia Lumia 1020 did not impress us with its night-time photos since they turned out overly warm in several scenes; still, they have a very good detail level. Surprisingly, the night shots produced by the Sony Xperia Z1 are mediocre, with poor details due to the noise and artifacts. But worst of them all was... you guessed it, the HTC One – its low light images lack detail and their colors are quite messed up in certain scenes.
