First of all, CNET does not recommend downloading APKs if it is not from the original developer, in this case Google. You are solely responsible for the consequences that this may cause and it is probably a good reason that Google has not yet officially enabled it in its Pixel 3 phones.
However, we installed the modified camera software on Pixel 3 XL to show some of what you’d expect from Night Sight mode when it’s officially released.
Please note that this may change slightly when it is officially available, but the improvements we noted in our tests are remarkable – we can almost say that the difference is night and day (literally) from how the camera behaved earlier.
The picture at the top is just an example, but click on the gallery below from our sister page CNET an Español to see more about Night Sight’s behaving and how it improves the light in low light.
Some things I’ve learned with Night Sight on Pixel 3:
- To capture as much light as possible, Night Sight takes several photos (up to 15 according to Google) and then combines them in a picture. It feels like an improved version of HDR, which uses a similar technique.
- The number of photos required in the mode is dictated by the level in the space you take it.
- When you take a night vision photo, you must keep your phone as stable as possible to get the best results. If you move too much, there is a good chance that the image becomes blurred.
- If you have the camera in auto mode, the app recommends that you turn on night mode to get more light in the image, especially when it’s too dark.
- At the moment, the app seems not to be completely clear, like two pictures I took off half the image with a solid gray.
- Night Sight addresses not only the darkness, enhancing different aspects of the photo to provide more details and better color reproduction.
