The P9 Plus isn't bad at night photography, but its results are fizzier than what you'd get from the best OIS cameras.

Monochrome shooting is like a shortcut to arty-looking shots with zero effort required. Lovely stuff.

Check out those greens. Nice punchy color, and some clear HDR-style dynamic range optimization going on here.

This is the sort of result you'll get from using the Night mode handheld: a bit of a blur-fest. Using the standard mode you couldn't see anything.

The Auto mode is great at balancing challenging lighting like this. The foreground isn't too dark, the clouds only a tiny bit overexposed.

With a lesser camera, you wouldn't get such nice and rich color when shooting with the limited lighting of an indie music shop like this.

The dynamic range optimization here makes the shot look slightly larger than life, but it's much better than leaving the National Gallery looking dull and drab.

A tricky overcast shot with lots of light level variance. You could bring out the foreground more in Photoshop if you wanted, but the P9 Plus has done a good job.

This shot could be brightened up a tad, but the sharpness is good and the white balance dead on.

It may not be the most dramatic sunset, but the P9 Plus has done a good job of bringing out the various colors in it.

This shot is grainier and less detail-packed than it would be from the Galaxy S7-series OIS phones.
