We took some of the best flagship phones for an astrophotography face-off — here are the results

Astrophotography with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.


All smartphones can take good looking photos when it’s sunny and bright out, but very few are equipped to tackle the night sky. Astrophotography has increasingly become more than just a novel hobby, moving closer to the mainstream where you no longer need the expertise and patience to see the stars in photos. 

One reason why? Many of the best camera phones around leverage their respective night modes to draw out the twinkling lights above us from the darkness of space.
