I currently have an iPhone 4S and indoor pictures without flash are understandably grainy. Supposedly, the camera in the iPhone five is improved in this regard. Can anyone confirm this?  I understand why the pictures are grainy in low light conditions, I would just like to know if the iPhone 5 improves this at all.  Thanks for any help.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    The iPhone 5 uses a special lens that takes low light photos better. There won't be any grain like the older iPhones have when trying to take photos in low light. Check out a comparison iPhone 5 video on YouTube of the camera.

    I don't have an iPhone 5, but Apple did say they improved low light photos.

    The iPhone 5 takes useable photos in low light because has a low-light mode that kicks in automatically which bumps the ISO up to 2000, however this obviosuly leads to higher grain.

    It's OK, but nowhere near a standard digital camera due to the size of the sensor being used.
