Some iPhone 6 Plus units are suffering from a weird camera issue

So, what's the problem? It's hard to explain, and you'll certainly need to check out the embedded video below, but let's just say that it seems like the optical image stabilizing gizmo is going nuts, creating extremely wavy footage. Unfortunately, the issue isn't limited to just video capture, with owners reporting that the camera is basically altogether useless.
On the bright side, Apple is likely already well-aware of the issue and several iPhone 6 Plus owners report having had their camera module or entire devices replaced thanks to its warranty. Unfortunately, if you're currently away from the device's home country, you'll likely either have to ship it back home or pay up at a local brick & mortar.
Tough start for Apple's first phablet.

Same with problems with every device Cause people with the problem complain People without the problem don't So we only heard the people complaining E.g. I haven't had any issues with Lollipop on my Nexus 5 But I dont use the torch for long periods or clear all apps out of recents, so that's probably why

Name one? Every single iPhone model has had connection problems with WiFi and Cellular. EVERY SINGLE MODEL. The iPhone 4 antenna issue was not a small problem which is way Apple had a bumper already being made, You idiots have this thing where out of a certain number the problem is small. Lets use your logic. 7B people live on this planet. ON a few million have cancer. Should we let them all die and do nothing about it because its a small problem compared to the population? Considering that, if you ever get cancer we should let you die, after all since I don't have cancer why should I care if you have it. After all its YOUR problem. Right? That how you all think, and that makes you ignorant. A problem is a problem, no matter the size. The only problem that isn't a problem is if there is no problem. If something wrong is reported, its a problem...big or small. To think otherwise makes you ignorant. They weren't blown out of proportion. Since Apple sells millions of phones, a single problem is potentially a bigger problem. Just like any one else who sells millions of phones. Most of APple problems effect ll their phones, just not everyone espereinces it. Another example? Theer are thousands of viruses for Windows, yet only 20% or less of the total Windows user group are every infected. That means its a small problem right? If so then why does Microsoft invest money into making Windows safer. Why waste money since onluy a small percentage of usersever get an infection nd the ones who do, its mostly their own fault. Suppose hospitals thought like you. After all, most ailments people get like colds, cancer and more are all the persons fault. Why should we try to fix you. Just showing you how ignorant you iFans think. If everyone thought like you, the world would be in worse shape than it is now. "I" equals "selfish". That's why I don't buy "I" products.

You are seriously comparing bugs in devices to diseases from which people die? Even 1 person dying is more important than all smartphones together not being able to use WiFi. Also tech2 was being sarcastic, since Apple said there were only

My Note 4 records like that when it is in the presence of Marijuana. Marijuana smoke (contact effect) seems to produce the effect faster.

None of the past issues have. So it wont now. Bu no single phone model released by anyone has ever had this many problems. This years cheap iPhone is really cheap. Cheap storage, cheap camera, cheap metal case and cheap glass on the display. Everything is cheap about this model but the price that went up $100. Tim Cook is laughing to the bank.
