After the main conference closed on Day Two of mobile Web West Africa last week, we had some party time on the roof at FourPoints By Sheraton. I had the opportunity to test out the low-light capabilities of the smartphones that I had on me at the time. The following shots were taken at 7.20 PM when it was already quite dark. The upper picture reflects the visual conditions at the time and was taken with the Sony Xperia P’s 8 megapixel snapper. No flash. I chose the Night Scene mode.
I am withholding the name of the phone which was used for the lower picture. Flash was also disabled and Night Scene mode used. Yes; it was an 8 megapixel camera phone too. Same scene. Same time. You can see how much clearer the lower photo is. Amazing; isn’t it?
Here is the question you have to answer: What smartphone delivered the lower picture?
