DAAAAAYUM
yea if it's true it's really amazing. Maybe it's that aperture ppl were talking about (Beards i think).
But the quality kinda sucks though

Indeed, the lens supports a wide aperture of F2.8, and combined with a slower shutter speed can give excellent low light results. However, you do at least need to hold the camera still, and it also helps to point it at something interesting

i guess f2.8 is still not big enough for a faster shutter speed in night mode
but im guessing lowlight performance can be really good with f2.8

The larger aperture is awesome! We've been complaining about nothing, a larger aperture > LED flash. Now, I don't know what the excuse is for the notification LED though...

yeah I will test out night mode, it says it's slower shutter. and yes it does make everything look brighter =D. i'll try it out

Edit: here are pictures (strange even in my washroom there wasn't that much light as the night mode LOL) (but there was more light than the normal mode, so night mode really does work and shows more light )

if only all the complainers saw this. Well, nvm, it probably won't shut them up anyway about the lack of a flash.

Agree! Flashlight for the people! But there is a solution for everything!

What you need:
1. 1pcs Samsung Galaxy S
2. 1pcs Mini LED Lamp Light
3. Silver gaffer tape
4. Sense of humor.

Cut off a piece of tape, remove the keychain from the LED Light. Place the LED Light at the top back of you phone with the led diode facing upwards, use a piece of tape to stick it in place. Do not forget to cut out a hole the on/off switch!

Alt. download a "flashlight" app from Market, and use the white screen for lightning up dark places, not as good, but it will work in most occasions

I will really miss my kewl flashlight app from my HD2! *cries*
