Annoyed by the iPhone 5 purple lens flare issue? This case can fix it

0. phoneArena posted on 11 Oct 2012, 06:20

Although Apple finds it completely normal, the purple tint present on some photos taken with the iPhone 5 can be pretty annoying. The imperfection appears in the corner of the image whenever a light source is near the edge of the camera's viewfinder. Could there be a cheap and easy way to take care of it?...

so no one is allowed to point out the facts, basically your saying when there's a problem with the iphone no one can call them on it. get a grip this is a phone site for everyone to discuss phones and problems, features etc

besides when a company's that arrogant to proclaim there mapping sevice as the best when it was even close they deserve criticism

same with this, this isnt normal only. apple claim that so they can continue this false image that there phones perfect. its always the customers who have to work around the mess apple make

and why do you assume its only those who use android that comment on this?

weird my nokia 808 doesn't have this purple haze crap, my n8 nope didnt either, satio didnt, n95 didnt, my old motorola dext didnt weird that aint it

get a damn grip you sad little ifan, its not normal its an excuse so apple dont have to admit they screwed up. the average camera on the iphone 5 shouldn't have this problem.

ohh and apple have been beat over and over in pretty much every single way. you wont be lighting this thread up, for one you dont seem smart enough to have your own opinion you just follow what apple say.

I see a trend here..... iPhone has antana issues.... fix it with a bumper.... iPhone has scuffs and scratches.... fix it with a bumper..... iPhone has purple tint in camera..... fix it with a bumper..... Apperently the iPhone needs a bumper to function as intended.

To be fair, this isn't the same picture. Seems like he waited for the sun to change direction, or get blocked by clouds or what not, and took the second picture.

geeeze apple I am starting to think that this is all one big seem to squeeze the most money out of your customers. so we need a nother map to download another case or what ever this is so the camara works properly. Lets see what all they need for there phone to work by the end of the year.

Hey I sure love the "premium build quality" that's even better with a bulky and cheap plastic case! And 25 bucks? More than glad to spend 325 on such a phone!

Apple's phone design issues always seem to be fixed by a case. Iphone 4 signal issues? A case. Purple Lens Flare in the 5? Case.
