    People has been reporting a green circular hue when using flash on the iPhone 4. Has there been a fix or explanation on why this is happening?

    there are quite a few posts about this. unless you issue is unique it's probably a lighting issue of some sort. post a pic, visuals help people here

    Do you have a protector film still on the back of the device? Flashes won't work through the films as they will reflect off it and be picked up in the lens.

    Using only a Belkin Vue case. If I take it off, the circle is not as bad but still there.

    I didn't think I fell into this but I guess I do. Took a picture of a white wall without flash.

    To me it seems like a white balancing thing. On my first iphone 4 I remembered seeing the green hue right before the flash fired, like to counteract the flash throwing off the tint of the picture?

    Might be a software problem if that's the case?

    You say 1st iPhone 4. What happen with the first phone. I'm assuming you traded it in for another one?

    This green "Hue" thing needs to be fixed or else the camera flash is useless! I'm sure thru "beta" testing, these things must've shown up!

    that green on the white wall is a lighting issue. if you wanna double check take a picture outside of something white. it should be gone. different light bulbs (in a room) affect camera's

    ^ seems to be true. Under fluorescent lighting, I have the green circle. Under halogen and natural light the circle is gone.

    My first phone froze 9 times within 2 days, it was the doesn't wake up, doesn't shut off problem. After it happened 3 times in a row (doesn't wake up, finally get it to restart and when the screen shut off to sleep it wouldn't wake up), I knew it was time to get it swapped out.
