    so i was out taking pictures tonight in a dark area where flash was required and someone else had the same phone and their pictures looked so much brighter and clearer and i asked them why and they told me i did not have my brightness turned up all the way. well they were right and it was only half way turned up and they had theirs turned up all the way. i was wondering if you turn your brightness all the way up to max does that help the picture quality and resolution?

    No, that is just the brightness of what is displayed on the screen of the iPhone. It in no way affects camera quality.

    so when you put your iphone pics on your computer it won't make any single pic look better because you took it with the brightness all the way up?

    No! It won't have any effect on pic quality!

    No. Display is for the phone and doesn't change pictures taken on a specific setting. As others said it will just display brighter when viewing or showing the pictures.

    so how come when you take pics in dark areas where it requires flash the pics come out with a grey in the background and not clear like it does when there is no flash?

    Coming from a photographer...flash actually sucks and should be used as a fill, not to make an entire dark area brighter....So for example, when in bright sun which causes harsh shadows...use the flash...if its night time and you can get away with longer exposures, use no flash. Google this as there is a lot of info on it.

    well how come when you take a picture with an actual camera and the flash goes off the picture looks great. on the iphone when the flash goes off in a dark area the pic has bad colors from the flash

    no pun intended, but are you comparing a real camera flash to a LED camera phone? Either way not always do flash pictures look great....specially at night....

    As he said, you're comparing a real camera with real features and hardware, to a more minimalist phone camera.

    Yes sir, the LED color doesn't mix well with the camera on the phone, causing the colors to look bad. If you use it in sun light, it doesn't look as bad. My advice is alway try to get a shot without flash first. Save it for last resort to get a shot (dark concentrated area, not a full scene)

    but if you are taking pictures using the FRONT-FACING CAMERA...it makes a difference.
