    I was trying to take some picture with the camera at night and it seems really statically. It doesn't really happen in the morning.

    Is this a defect or is it just me?

    I have found the iPhone camera not so good in low light situations.

    Is it only the iPhone camera?

    What about top tier Android handsets like the GSIII?

    Pretty much every phone camera will experience that grain when taking photos at night. Pretty much the only exceptions would be the Lumia 920 and Nokia 808. But then again, that's why the led flash is put there. I would just diffuse it with wax paper or something so it isn't so harsh.

    Samsung has tried to add some software improvements into their 4.1.2 update to make low light shots look better. But it just makes the photo really purple.

    I have no idea since I have never owned one.
