    Has anyone else encountered some odd colors on the front facing camera of the L920? It seems to flicker between green and blue tints, and almost always results in an off-colored picture.

    I've noticed this too while trying out the new Skype. It's pretty annoying, bad front facing camera or maybe an update could fix it?

    Yes, my Lumia does that but only in like dark conditions, when I'm outside in the day time it works okay, but I do see the blueish color
    Thought it was just me. Hope this gets fixed

    I see this too. Seems to happen on low light condition where the camera can't make up it's mind on exposure value.

    Any updates regarding this problem? I just noticed this today as well. No Portico update since that's only US/CA only.

    For those that have the Portico update - has this issue been fixed?

    maybe by trying to compensate the yellow tint of the main camera, Nokia had to let the the front camera suffer a downside.
    wild guess of course

    My 920 has this same problem. When I'm outside with alot of light, its fine, but last night I was trying to take a pic of me and my wife in our living room and it kept doing the blue flickering thing. Very annoying. The pic came out crappy as well.
