A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to Vienna, Austria.
When I was there, I could not help but photograph the beautiful architecture of the city. I wanted to go deeper into the night mode of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, although I decided to take a look at the night shots with the three Android devices that prominently advertise the function, the Mate 20 Pro, the Google Pixel 3 (especially the Pixel 3 XL) and the OnePlus 6T.
It is important to note that the night mode of the OnePlus 6T is called NightScape, while the Pixel 3 XL & # 39; s & # 39; Night Sight & # 39; is called.
Although I will not indicate which photo's I prefer and want to leave it open for you to decide for yourself, I will discuss the experience in taking photos in low light.
With the Night mode on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, both the user and his subject must be perfectly quiet. The phone takes a few seconds, because the ISO is raised and the brightness is adjusted to the photo. During these seconds, the image will become very out of focus if you or your subject is moving. This became frustrating when photographing buildings with passing cars.
The Pixel 3 XL, on the other hand, requires the user to remain silent for only one second and most of the work is done in post-processing. You can see the Pixel 3 XL and make the photo clearer and more detailed. While he took pictures in the cold streets of Vienna, the Pixel 3 XL was optimal because of the speed with which the whole process went.
Finally, it takes a few seconds for the OnePlus to take 6T photos, but it takes longer to edit the photo. However, when this happens, the device becomes unusable until it has completed the task. This also meant that it was not possible to quickly make multiple night shots in quick succession. The function became very awkward as I used it more.
That said, all three phones were good at capturing night photo's. View the gallery below and let us know in the comments and in our survey which smartphone in your opinion did the best job.
Note that the OnePlus 6T died one day overnight, so it does not have as many pictures as the other two devices. I have not changed or changed the photo 's in any way. Furthermore, none of these photos were taken manually and instead they were all taken with the basal camera night mode of each smartphone.
