- Google publishes comparatively low light between iPhone XS and Pixel 3.
- Pixel 3 uses Night Sight to achieve a brighter iPhone result. 19659003] The iPhone XS is lacking the right night mode, as seen by competing Android handsets
Nightly modes are raging in the smartphone industry, with Huawei, Google, OnePlus and Xiaomi offering the option of their devices. Google now compares Pixel 3 night vision with the iPhone XS in a low-light situation (see above) and there is a clear difference between the two.
Google's Marketing Director Marvin Chaw published the Twitter comparison showing "Phone X" on the left and Google Pixel 3 with Night Sight on the right. The small text on the left tells us that "Phone X" is actually an iPhone XS.

The scene that shows a model standing in front of a neon-lit scene at night seems ideal for night mode. Pixel 3 managed to achieve a brighter overall scene clearly showing the woman's face, clothing and other elements. But the background buildings were also brighter and more detailed in the Google photo, except for some burning lights. Hell, you can even see a brighter (but not too noisy) sky in pixels 3.
How did you handle the iPhone?
Meanwhile, Apple's phone was much darker in general as the model looked like a silhouette against the neon. environment. The woman's face is almost completely dark, and her clothes do not retain the same rich color as Google's efforts. The photo of the iPhone XS manages to silence the background lighting, while Google instead prioritizes the model. But based on the fact that we have an obvious topic in the viewfinder, I would say that the Google phone has certainly made the right decision.
I still wonder if the iPhone XS really is bad, almost as if the photographer is adjusting background exposure (or just does not push the face of the subject). But if there is no foul play here, it's a big win for Google.
Night mode is becoming one of the most important weapons in the smartphone arsenal these days, combining multiple exposures with intelligent algorithms. Apple's iPhone does not have this feature right now, but I would not be surprised if a future version of iOS offers this functionality. This could be a grace for older iPhones phones by giving Apple hereditary devices a welcome boost in low-light situations. But until then it seems Pixel 3 is dominant when the sun falls.
