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...

apple products are not made in china, they are assembled over there....different components are made in different countries and all those components are assembled in china........

Yeah, the iPhone 5 has a lot of issues...
Dang. I was hoping it would be better than this.
Hopefully it's another of those problems that only a few have.

I know right, I would much rather have a remote wiping issue on my GS3 than lens flare.

Hopefully this 3rd GS3 update is the charm

as you can see from the images...the tint doesn't only appear when the phone is pointed to the sun

and samsung has nothing to do with what i said...im talking about how people always say that iphone is a top quality device...i didn't compare anything to anything

to be fair... that article pertains to iOS6. nothing to do with the iPhone 5 let alone the camera.

If your gonna bash apple make sure you dont look like a rtard doing it. That would just make Android fans look less educated, and we dont want that now do we?

Wasn't the camera on the 4 one of the best ever put in a phone? Does anyone at Apple understand the concept "if it isn't broken, don't fix it?"

Good point, but we live in a world where what you have on your phone today will be an antique tomorrow, so Apple need to improve as they go, just like any other manufacturer. So even if it ain't broke, they will try to improve it, or else we will still be stuck in an age where phones have just two functionalites, Calls and Text. Unfortunately Apple instead of improving they broke it.

True, good point. As an after thought, what comes to mind is how can a company the size of Apple put so little money into R&D? Do they really think people will continue to buy their products regardless of the quality problems or has money really become too much of a focus? And where has the quality control gone, didn't anyone test the camera to reveal this? Or are they really feeling the pressure of not having the market share they feel they should so they rush products out the door before they are really ready for consumer use

Lately it seems like iPhone release problems are a norm and not an exception.

actually the camera in the crappy amaze 4g was better than the iphone 4's, even phonearena compared them. n i think that claim was made by apple about the camera. but they lie about most everything anyways lol

As an avid Android user, I find your statement 100% false. Sorry, but the Amaze 4G is not even close.

They know that concept all too well, thus why the phones havent changed much in 5 years outside of hardware.

WOW! Good job apple, you were concentrating more on suing people instead of putting us first. Now this

If you weren't busy finding out what your competitors were having on their phones, you could have spend all that $$ on improving and making the iPhone 5 a killer phone. I love you but, let the truth be told, iPhone 5 is coming up with too many problems. Well good thing for me I'll get my iPhone 5 some time in January, when you have fixed all this rubbish (wishful thinking)

Better switch. I did. It's a bit hard at first cause it's different - but after awhile - you fall in love with Android. :)

I think the new magenta feature is absolutely wonderful; Apple's acceptance of the pink raiNbow only demonstrates how progressively forward they are when it comes to metrosexuals.

i guess apple was so busy suing everybody they dint get time to innovate anything so they stretched the 1p4s and came up with ip5.
no doubt ip5 will sell well but its neither innovative nor better than the competition.
