    That would be the TIMG tag instead of the IMG ;)

    Take your phone to the Genius Bar and they will evaluate it
    I would guess you could get a replacement

    Does it really bother you?

    My phone has it too, but it a blessing compared to the problems I had with the several other iPhone 4s it replaced.

    And yes, I would take back my i4 if I had that problem. Why should you put up with that?

    because it's not a problem, it's a byproduct of using a new kind of sensor that picks up low light much better, and just so happens to sometimes cause this green artifact when ccfl lighting is around

    Given that it's a known artifact, a software update, post processing filter could easily fix this by subtracting green/adding red in an omni-directional filter.

    it's like complaining your camera gives people red eye, it's the same thing

    if it bothers you that much use different indoor lighting or fix it post production, but any replacement will have a similar issue

    you just want an excuse to try and get a brand new iPhone, so you can maximize your profits (why not just say that instead of trying to act innocent initially?)

    This^

    I brought my phone in during the first week of release because of this problem, the Genius people didn't know about it and were nice enough to offer me a replacement. Everything got squared away and then we tried the new phone and it had the problem in the store, all the employees' phones did too. It's lighting as the issue, 99%. Florescent indoors isn't so great, otherwise it's really a great camera-phone.

    not trying to be 'innocent' just dont want to sell a phone to someone with a dodgy camera, but if its a problem with all iphone 4s then i suppose theres no point. So no im not just looking for an excuse to maxmize my profits, and if i were i would say so, couldnt give a flying ***** if you think im innocent or not tbh

    ??? First, the reason a camera gives redeye has nothing to do with the camera but rather our eyes. There is nothing they can do to fix something like that unlike this problem. This problem is an issue with the screen and I suspect that if it was as simple as a software fix it would have been done by now. Also, if it was released with a known artifact then Apple QC needs their heads examined. IMHO, this is an issue and a swapped phone should easily allowed NOT telling someone to use different lighting. :rolleyes:

    What the OP does with the equipment after this is his business. Sell it, buy an iPod and Windows 7 mobile if you like.

    I think you should be able to get it replaced. The camera is part of the reason you might have bought the iPhone, and therefore this kind of artifact can be unacceptable.

    Then again, you also have to understand that about 99% of the iPhone users would never notice it.
