    Hahahahahahahahaha! OMFG, are they serious?!

    I guess since it worked once, they might as well use the excuse again. And those pictures are pretty damning evidence.

    The sad part? Something else they can probably address with a software update, but they'll probably take 2-3 months to do it.

    Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave.
    Not so sure that it's not a physical issue. We were speculating in another forum about the fact that it's sapphire lense may be to blame. I don't know if you guys own watches with sapphire crystals but, they do refract/reflect light differently and do cause different hues to be seen.

    And still, the iPhone 5 - Camera got best marks by "Stiftung Warentest" (A german institution that tests new products). I once took this institution seriously, but not anymore. I really wonder if its just purple tinted glasses or free iPhones flowing to produce all these riciculousy good reviews. :mad:
    What I find hard to comprehend: They point out a few flaws (Easy to scratch, bad reception when being held on the bottom) but still have the nerve to say this is one of the best smarphones they have ever tested.

    Come ooooon!!!! :mad:

    Here's one of the links for the German speakers here:

    Yeah, I was reading that on another post as well and wondering the same thing. If it is a hardware defect, it may mean retooling the supply chain at some point.

    However, I can't help but wonder if there isn't a programming intelligence change they can make to digitally correct for some of that. I'm neither an optics expert nor an imaging algorithm expert, but I'm sure they're going to address it somehow.

    Doesn't make me laugh any less that it's such a big issue now, lol.

    I agree that reviewers that overlooked these things in their glowing reviews leave a bad taste in my mouth

    This is too true. I feel the same. All I see are reviews about how great it is, they point out some issues but still say its the best. Seriously? I have to wonder if Apple themselves own the majority of these small tech review companies and are writing their own reviews...

    This just makes zero sense.
