    Hi, for some reason a dark permanent spot has occurred in my iPhone 4 camera and all the pictures i take with it.

    Let me show 2 screenshots:


    As you can see, theres a small dark spot in the lower left corner, it really bugs me!

    Now I would like to know if it is hardware related or software related? Might it be a defective camera? I first thought it was due to a small scratch on the camera lens, but when doing a bit of search, lots of people have scratches on their lenses without messing up the picture quality. So might it be a software related issue after alle, and does anyone know of a solution?

    Thank you very much! :)

    Are there really no one who have seen this error before?

    Just go to Apple, they'll easily give you a replacement. I've gotten replacements for more minor issues.

    My camera did this after dropping my phone on the sidewalk. Swapping the camera module fixed it - it's a hardware issue with the camera.
