Nokia 2.4 camera performs better than average in low-light and Night Mode certainly brings difference over normal low-light capture but it has areas for improvements. It can be tweaked for even more light or/and better details capture.
We also would like to mention the new Flash torch mode that gives better results than the traditional flash capture. It results in better clarity and white balance.
Video capture is satisfactory with good details but can be tweaked for better clarity/contrast. It performs well in low-light conditions too but focusing in extreme low-light cases is erratic.
