[Poll Results!] How do you like the new Night mode on your Galaxy S10 camera?
Samsung’s supposed answer to the impressive night photography skills of Google and Huawei phones on the Galaxy S10 turned out to be a disappointment. Bright Night, as it was called when the Galaxy S10 trio were launched, worked like a very basic night mode that brightened up the final picture a bit. And whether Bright Night was actually needed for a scene was decided by the phone, which severely limited its usefulness as it didn’t really kick in unless you were shooting in really dark situations.
Thankfully, Samsung decided to turn Bright Night into a dedicated Night mode with the latest software update. The quality of images produced hasn’t changed much — you do get brighter pictures, but there’s also plenty of noise and a lack of detail apparent in shots taken in Night mode. But being able to manually take shots in Night mode is very useful indeed, especially since you can now take advantage of it even for scenes that are bright enough for the automatic Photo mode.
And so we pose a question to our readers who own a Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, or Galaxy S10+: How are you liking the Night mode on the phone’s camera? Go ahead and vote in the poll below, and if you have some thoughts you’d like to share on the matter, be sure to tell us down in the comments.
Results: Well, as we expected, most people think the Night mode on the Galaxy S10 should have been better, with 57 percent of voters having that opinion. 9 percent of voters think it’s fine for the few times they need it, while 7 percent think it’s great. 8 percent believe the automatic shooting mode is all they need, and 18 percent voters said they haven’t received the update with Night mode yet, although that should have changed in the last couple of days after the poll went live.
