    My photos with flash come out like the one below. My boyfriend took the same photo with his phone, and it looked "normal." All my flash photos are coming out like this.

    Has anyone experienced this? Any solutions or do I need a replacement phone?

    Thanks in advance. It's an iPhone 4. No case.

    Depends...do you have a case/screen protector on or cracked glass on the back? If yes then its clearly obstructing the flash. If no or a crack, then yup a replacement seems to be in your future.

    No, no... No case, no cracks. This is a replacement iPhone after my last had mic issues.

    :S that sucks and is real unlucky because every now and then apple does produce a faulty phone because the camera wasnt done right.
    although its a pain, thats begging for a genius bar appointment. they should replace with a new one.

    That pic isn't a good example. The small flash on the iPhone would not be able to illuminate a scene at that distance well enough to get a proper exposure. To test the flash, take a pic at night of something about 6 feet from the camera.

    I'm not sure OP is complaining about the lack of actual light in the picture, it looks more like a blue haze ruining the picture. Can you post your boyfriends pictures to see the actual difference?

    If a restore doesn't work there isn't much more you can do. I suppose you could try to use a third-party camera app. Failing those 2 things, visit to the Apple store for a (probably) no-hassle replacement if you can produce a couple pictures of that quality.

    I don't have his pic but it didn't have the blue haze. Just a normal illumination.

    You haven't got any screen protectors on have you? or the 'protector' one that came with the iPhone have you pealed it off? Silly question but it reflects the flash.
