A few days ago, it was revealed that the new Galaxy S10 phones were set to receive a camera update that would improve the devices' night mode feature. The OTA was sent out yesterday but it would appear those rumors were pointless, as the update really doesn't do anything new.

Samsung's night mode is marketed as Bright Night, and is meant to be a competitor to Google's Night Sight and Huawei's Night Mode. Sadly, it's comfortably the worst of the three. Before this update, Bright Night was not a dedicated mode, and could only be triggered by the AI in lighting conditions it deemed fit, ergo extreme low-light. The new update, however, allows users to toggle the mode themselves. Also, it's not even referred to as "Bright Night" in the app either; just "Night".

That's fine and all—and definitely has it uses—but most may have been led to believe that the update would bring a performance boost. It doesn't. Bright Night is still better than shooting in auto mode but, as a standalone feature, it fails to trade punches with Huawei and Google's takes.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
