Well, users hold the phone wrong. Again. Apple should create a manual and pack it with the phone, to teach users how they are supposed to hold that phone... Kinda think of it, maybe even maps are ok, people just look at it wrong :/

Damnit iPhone users stop using the products wrong! Steve Jobs must be rolling in his grave with your ignorance and misuse of a perfect product!

For shame...

Agreed.... I remember a few months back the HTC EVO LTE got knocked down to an 8.5 because of a software bug that would reload the webpage when resized and because it launched when Sprint did not have any LTE coverage. The iPhone 5 was rated a 9 with an even larger laundry list of issues. Bias anyone?

I do not know if the problem is exacerbated by the overall size of the camera module (compactness of the lens group), new protective lens material (sapphire glass), and/or subtle changes to processing...but the Purple Haze is much more noticeable on the iPhone 5 than with its predecessors.

Apples answer

"You are taking your photos wrong"

Nothing changes it seems.

People in todays fast pace world, need a computer to keep-up, or be left behind like hillbilly Bob. Most of us are not "technically savvy" enough to put a good one together, so Apple did it for us (introducing the imac). Everything in one package, no need to build a disk drive tower or worry about a monitor or speakers n stuff... But because we were so stupid, Apple made us dependent on them. We needed itunes to keep everything connected... And naturally an iphone to make it complete... Then I realized that their are apps that can transfer my music & photos from itunes to my beautiful Android phone (i got tired of waiting every year for 1 slightly bumped phone). When other cell phone makers were pumping out nice looking ones every other month for different choices; I like BIG screens... Since i left Apple, i've become much more smarter (phone wise). I still love my Imac though... Just my opinion.
