How to Take Outdoor images (w/o Flash) When its Dark Properly?

I have several phone cameras and i notice when its getting dark but with my eyes it is still light enough that i can see everything just fine, that my cameras have a tough time capturing it in its truest form. Is it the type phones i am using, or where a real camera should be used, or an app setting (ie, exposure) need to be explored?

There are some images i'd love to capture and post on Deviant but they just come out with grainy particles and lack the color pizazz that i see with my eyes.

Yeah, it is because the f-number of the human eye varies from about f/8.3 in a very brightly lit place to about f/2.1 in the dark.. That's why we see clarity in dark too. But Technology couldn't compete the human eye.

As far as camera concern I recommend you to use iPhone 7/X Camera. It's much better than all other phones.

Best Regards

Probably not possible with a phone camera.

A dedicated camera, even an inexpensive point and shoot should get you down to about f2 and a real camera (down to f1.2) using a tripod with timed exposures can take a picture in full darkness.
I do not put ads or pop-ups in my posts and I have no control of what shows there. I do not endorse any product displayed in my post.
