Google Pixel Night Sight review: a superb camera upgrade

It was a feature that Google teased at the launch of the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL but now Night Sight is coming to all Pixel phones and Digital Camera World were among the first people to try out this new, and pretty revolutionary camera feature. 

Google has bet big on smartphones this year, and most importantly, the camera side of things. If you take one look at the hardware, this would be surprising as what you have on the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3XL is just one lens on the back. We are now in a world when one lens feels rather inadequate - you just have to look at the three-lens setup on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro to understand where manufacturers are going with cameras on phones.
