    This is my problem:

    I cleaned glass from inside and outside, sensor glass itself, but that "spot" remains. I do not know what else could douse this but dirt.

    Any suggestion about cleaning ?

    I'd suggest replacing the sensor if you can. Sounds like its a defect inside the part.

    this has been documented a bunch of times since the iphone 5 came out last year. its an issue with the camera itself (the purple dust particle). people got their phones replaced under warranty because of it. if yours is out of warranty, swapping out the camera may be the only option unless apple is willing to help you out with it.

    This is serious design error. So many people around the world have this issue. Dust behind screens, cameras......:mad:

    You can change a brand new camera lens.....the lens is not an expensive part....
