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

Apple will just tell them it’s suppose to do that, and they’ll all go away happy.

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...
