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.
