    Don't use auto mode. That makes them grainy. Switch to indoor mode with flash when indoors... or try HDR mode. That takes fabulous pics

    I absolutely HATE using the flash except for "fill" purposes. This isn't specific to the S4; no matter what the camera/phone, if you can get great low light pictures without resorting to flash, you'll likely be happier for it. That's one of the reasons I value good/great low light performance. I will, however, see how I feel about the S4's HDR performance.

    There is also a low light mode on galaxy phones

    I have both. Much prefer HTC One camera features. That said, the S4 holds its own and seems to value different things.

    For low light performance and a fun out of the box camera experience, I reach for the One. If lighting is good and I'm concerned about megapixels (rarely), then the S4 is the go to.

    People are so obssesed with low light photos suddenly. I find myself using almost all features, obviously not all the time but given the right opportunity every feature can come in handy. As for low light unless you're a landscape photo freak, I'll use flash in almost all my pictures.

    Lol thats zoe? So this is actually why people are saying HTC has better camera features. Doesn't make any sense.

    Nope, that's a highlight reel with Zoe's and photos included. Zoe takes a few seconds of video and 20 photos at the same time. It also takes 0.6 of a second before you press the shutter. Apart from being able to create highlight reel from the video, or being able to choose from the 20 photos, it also allows you to use features such as sequence shots or eraser shot... after you take a Zoe. This means that unlike the S4, you don't have to know that someone's going to photo-bomb or look good in a sequence shot beforehand. Instead you have some video, 20 photos, the ability to add features and edit afterwards and then the highlights reel.

    And that's why reviewers and users love Zoe :-)

    Another thing to note is that the still of the springrolls above was from a zoe sequence. The zoes take 20 full res. images and the short video. The zoe has a lot of uses, including helping in low light plus all the editing options.

    Obviously each person's use varies, but most of my photos are indoors, with another large amount at night, late evenings, etc. So, yes, low light is a priority for ME. And like I said, I avoid flash when at all possible. A good many people who dabble in photography will do the same.

    The S4 camera excels in many areas and I think I'll likely get a fair amount of use out of it. But so far, its low light performance is outperformed by my other options. Your experience may vary.

    I wouldn't say lately. I think since the day cameras were invented, there has been a general obsession with improving film and camera abilities to shoot in available light.

    99.99% of the time natural light makes for more pleasing photos unless you go to off camera and/or multi light setups - but then you wouldn't use a phone except as a gimmick.

    coming from iPhone 5. I find the S4 camera to be better. I get amazing photos with the S4. I find myself taking more pictures just to see how they will turn out.

    Anyone else coming from iPhones feel this way?? Solutions? (don't be a smart *** I know how to use a camera i shoot with a 5d mark3) thanks!!
    Last night my wife and I tried to get some pictures of our two year old at the same time. She as an iPhone 5 and I have an S4. The color tint was a bit different between the two but the actual quality of the pictures we got (I was on Sport mode) was pretty similar. With the lighting we had neither were all that great.
