    I want to take a night sky photo with my Galaxy note 8, but its iso is only 800. But I can see it's auto iso can increase your 1600.

    Are you saying that the scale goes only to 800 or that you cannot set it to a higher value when in manual mode?

    A quick internet search suggests that the Note 8 has a max ISO of 800 when in manual mode.

    I am not sure if installing a different camera app will help or not.

    Let's see if we get some better eyes seeing this thread if it is moved into the Note 8 forum...

    Although apps other than the Samsung one can simulate a higher ISO, you'll lose so much detail the stars may not show clearly. Better to use a lower ISO and a longer exposure. Make sure the phone is steady, use the manual (pro) settings and select the exposure manually - it can go up to 10 seconds.

    Agreed. Higher ISO will not give you the picture quality you are looking for. You will also need to invest in a tripod, if you don't have one already.

    The higher the ISO, the more noise. I try to stay away from high ISO unless I’m in bright daylight taking action shots.
