Smartphones are our best and most-used photography companions. Taking pictures is one of the things we use our phones the most for, so it's only natural that we require more and more of them.
High-end handsets have almost replaced point-and-shoot cameras entirely, and not just because of sheer convenience: The actual quality of the shots produced by, say, a recent iPhone, is more than enough to share on Facebook, Instagram, and whatnot.
However, phones still generally struggle with low-light photography, where the physical size of sensors doesn't allow for much noise-less detail to be captured, with results that often vary between grainy and muffled.
There is one simple trick, however, that can help you make the most of your phone and let you take shots significantly nicer-looking than average: Tweaking the exposure.
