I don't have that flash. I assume you talk about the instant screen flash after you take a picture? When you take a picture in total darkness like in 2nd video, your picture will come out completely dark. You need at least a little of light source in the room to have a good picture with 920.

I've just tried taking a photo in low light and it works perfectly, I was actually surprised at how well it worked as I'd not tried it before.
Put it to Night mode instead of Auto and it was a beaut.

Night mode can take pics in some pretty low light. But not extremely low light. You need some ambient light.
The room likely had more light than it looks like in the video, but you can't tell because of the limitations of the video camera itself. It is likely not some expensive video camera that has some awesome low light optimization. So through the video camera it looks like a pitch black room, but in reality it's just a pretty dark room.
Turn in your hallway lights and tun on a bathroom or closet light in the other side of the room. It's likely not pitch black in the room when you look at it with your own eyes. But if you take a video of it with even a decent video camera, it likely looks pretty black. If you take a picture with a regular point & shoot or cell phone without flash, it's likely black.
