Testing with the Night Mode of the new iPhones makes the best Android device “look amateur”

The iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are already in the hands of several users around the world and will soon also be in Brazilian lands. As we know, the focus of the new devices is on the camera, which has gained another lens (ultra-angular) in addition to even more features.

Among the range of possibilities with the new triple camera system, the Night Mode it is perhaps the most anticipated option for iPhones and we have even demonstrated how it works. The feature is really so good that the Michael Simon, gives PCWorld, said that it makes the best Android device in that sense “look amateurish” – in reference to Night Sight Of google.

I am simply impressed with what Apple was able to do with Night Mode on the iPhone 11. When I tried the Night Sight on Pixel 3 last October, I couldn’t believe what Google was able to do with artificial intelligence and processing alone. In no uncertain terms, Apple’s Night Mode makes the Night Sight look amateur.

Simon also attributed the best UI to the iPhone, saying that Apple had achieved quite a feat in making the camera not only more powerful, but also more intuitive, especially when processing photos in Night Mode, which is automatically activated when camera detects low light.

IPhone places the countdown at the bottom of the screen so that it doesn’t interfere with what you’re trying to record. The camera application tells you exactly how long the processing [do Modo Noite] it will take – usually a second or two, depending on the available light – for you to know in advance how long you will need to keep your hand steady. This is a mystery with the other phones.

Compared to some of the best flagships of the market, like the Galaxy S10 + (from Samsung) and the Pixel 3 XL (from Google), the iPhone 11 Night Mode (we’re not even talking about the Pro devices) gives a “beating” on the competitors:

More Night Mode tests


As we said, we analyzed not only Night Mode, but the triple camera system of the iPhones 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, and you can check the result of the analysis of our esteemed editor-in-chief Rafael Fischmann below:

This feature has not gone unnoticed by leading Apple photographers and enthusiasts out there, including Rene Ritchie himself, from iMore, who tore silk for Night Mode, but also pointed out some points where Apple’s feature lags behind competitors.

Night Mode on iPhone 11 doesn’t do everything. You cannot force it manually. You can’t use it with the ultra wide angle without focusing on pixels. But what you can do, you can do well.

The channel creator iPhonedo, Faruk, also published a video (tip from Pietro Souza) demonstrating and, of course, praising Night Mode on the new iPhones – although, at the beginning of the video, he made a veiled criticism of the new ultra-angular lens, which he says is “weak” (we talk a little bit about it here ).


More than videos, the best way to compare images captured with Night Mode is to actually place them side by side with other photos without this feature. So, check out the photos from Ben Lovejoy’s, 9to5Mac:

Opinion is not something static and varies from one person to another; naturally, certain users go further and religiously defend a certain brand (be it Apple, Samsung, Google, etc.); either way, Night Mode represents an advance in the iPhones’ camera – and that’s the fact.

It is clear that speculation will revolve around the next generation of Apple smartphones, which may include a new 3D sensor that will certainly further improve the quality of the images of the prosperous devices (or, who knows, contribute to the deployment of yet another feature. future iPhones).

In addition, in the coming weeks we will see the arrival of the Pixel 4 to the market – which certainly promises to stir up these comparisons even more, and who knows, maybe to resume the preference of analysts. We will follow up!
