Samsung has steadily improved night mode on the Galaxy S10 phones over the past few months. The latest update allows users to use night mode on all of their phones' cameras. And yes, that includes the selfie camera.

Samsung's Galaxy S10 phones launched with a half-baked night mode that could only be triggered by scene recognition in low-light shooting conditions. Since then, though, the company has sent out several updates that have improved the feature, with a recent one making the S10 phones competitive with Google's Night Sight. (Samsung Galaxy S10 Unlocked on sale now at Amazon)

A new update has taken it a step further, as it's given all the cameras on the S10 phones the ability to use night mode. And yes, that includes the selfie camera. Before this, only the main shooter could use the feature.

This new feature comes as part of the September update and will eventually roll out to all S10 line users. Users in the US, however, may have to wait for the October update.

Having night mode enabled with all the cameras has its perks. Telephoto lenses, for example, generally perform much worse in low light and having the ability to take long exposure shots with night mode is something of a game-changer. Using night mode with the selfie camera will also lead to the capturing of more detail and texture, the lack of which is something S10 users have complained about in the past.
