    From my experience, if you want to use the flash just stick with auto mode. If you want to use manual mode, don't use the flash. To get good results in low light without the flash, or for things to far away for the flash to help you may really need a tripod.

    For low light you want as large an f-stop as you have (which kills your depth of field, but you might want that to focus on a single subject) and a slow speed (which means a tripos and a non-moving object).

    If the flash pictures work, use them - it's not cheating.

    It depends on what you're taking a picture of. I'm manual mode you can actually lower the ISO to around 100-250 and increase the shutter speed until you get the exposure you want. Too slow of a shutter speed will produce an overexposed image. I took three shots as a reference. The phone is about 18 inches from the subject. The first picture is in manual but with auto exposure lock off which is basically just auto since you're allowing the software to choose everything for you. For the second shot I just turned the flash on and allowed the software to do the rest. You can see it's slightly overexposed. In the third shot I set the ISO to 100 and the shutter speed to 1/60. In the last shot I set the shutter speed to 2 seconds and and ISO at 150 with no flash. Slightly blurred since its handheld. Hope this helps.

    For long exposures you'll definitely need a tripod and an nd8 filter if you want to contain highlights for really long exposures like the max 30 seconds. You just have to play around with the settings but you can get some amazing results with this phone. Check out the pictures with V10 thread as well. Here are some of mine.

    For that you will definitely want a tripod. You want to use a very slow shutter speed, 1/100 or less. Also increase your ISO to about 400, but don't go too high otherwise you'll get a grainy picture.

    Not sure how bright the northern lights are but 1/100 is a fairly fast shutter speed. No tripod needed there. You can go as low as 1/15 without tripod. Anything lower gets difficult. For shooting night sky shots I use shutter speeds of 4 seconds or higher. I've even used the max 30 seconds several times. But I also keep my iso locked at 50 as I hate noise in low light shots.
