What's the low-light performance like? From focus to exposure to white balance to everything else, which camera brings home the best shots?

iPad Air 2 vs iPhone 6 camera comparison

Anyone who has ever owned a current generation iPhone alongside a current generation iPad is probably already aware of the fact that the iPad's camera has never been given the same treatment.
