Food for thought. Modern cameras and smartphones aim to create the correct exposure and the perfect picture.
But perfect can be boring.
Push your exposure up or down, adjust the exposure correction at your device or shoot in RAW or DNG if you can and play around later on the computer.
For iPhone there are some apps which let you shoot RAW and I am sure for Android as well.
Try it out and look at the result. You may be amazed what you can create.
