Next problem with the Apple iPhone 5 brings purple tinting to certain pictures

0. phoneArena 26 Sep 2012, 15:17 posted on

Another day, another problem with the Apple iPhone 5 and this time it is the camera at fault; take a picture with a light source out of the frame and the edges of the picture show a purple tint which doesn't appear when the light source is part of the shot...

Looks like a regular lens flare. This happens from internal reflections within the lens.

Did you see my correction after my post? If ya gonna troll bro make sure you read previous posts first so that you won't make yourself look like an idiot.:)..

Yeah you can drop iPhone 5 all you want but did you also see the news about some iPhone 5 comes out of the box with dents, chipped coating and scurfs? Hah! So much for "superb" build quality bro. What's the point of drop tests to prove it's build quality if it comes out of the box already damaged in the first place? eww! lol

The explanation is obvious:

While light leaks from the body
Yellow tint on display
Grey static lines on keyboard
Silver scratches on the aluminium back
Blue flickering on the display
Purple tint on camera

Are you getting this? These are not separate flaws! It's one super flaw:

I think those faults in the new iPhone are the ones NOT mentioned in the 200 new features that arrived with the new iOS and iP5.
It was mostly like, SIRI can do this, SIRI can do that...and not much of others.
If it was mentioned among the new features, however, customers can sue them.
Dear Apple, how come there are so many faults in your one new piece of 3.5 inch innovation? Are you selling unfinished products? Darn, i'm afraid the new pieces on the make due to popular demand will have more faults!!

So the next iPhone, or should I say the "iPhone 5S" is going to have a slightly faster CPU and GPU??? Very little change and innovation... What an obvious pattern to follow now...

ok first your comments are just becoming gibberish

second apple troll if your gonna comment crap people are gonna call you on it, sometimes its fun to watch a apple idiot make a fool out of himself, yeah lots on her are laughing at you, the others pity you.

now you keep going on about money and how the iphone is for the rich but if you looked there are android phones that cost the same and more. my phone cost more then your precious iphone

so with your logic as my phone cost more im better then you right? thats how it works in your sad little apple bubble.

ohh and dont reply unless you can come up with a proper comment . i wont hold my breath

After all the stuff found wrong with this phone, it will still be rated at 9 or 9,5 out of ten by the critic here in the good old USA where apple can do no wrong. If the Samsung Galaxy 3 had all these problem it would be o.n the do not buy list

So what if we got disappointed, let down, lied to, overcharged, and has tons of issues! Everyone is buying it! Yes the sheep flock to the meat grinder and willingly jump right in.

I know most new products always have issues but please give some better comebacks than "everyone is buying it" and "look at the sales!"

The sterotype that all apple users are rich. You are so ignorant lol.

Guess what buddy? This girl works at my local SHELL STATION, makes jack squat, working part time and guess what? She's got an iphone 4s.

You gotta face reality that most android phones are as expensive or even more expansive than the iPhone.

Oh and before you say it, I have an ipod touch 4th gen, I have a ipad 2 but I use the Galaxy S3 as my phone. I'm not rich by any means, I have my own house, car, and I can pay my own bills.

It's not 2007 anymore where the iPhone is 600-700 dollars on contract. Even middle class and below can AFFORD apple products now.

Really that the best you got?

From the looks of it I think you can’t even afford to leave your Mom’s basement and yet you say “Apple user can afford it”.

Dude just be true to yourself you don’t need an iphone to be accepted nor be labeled as one of those that “Can Afford”
