    Go to the collage of HTC One photos, clearly has the "purple flare issue"...although its not really a issue because you can completly avoid it(atleast for me on my iPhone 5)

    When Phil Shiller said this was normal for camera phones. Many scoffed. Yet here we are.

    I'm fairly sure this is not an issue but the norm for phone cameras.

    Not trying to be facetious, but I haven't ever seen a purple flare on my S3?

    It appears to only be "normal" on dying has-been companies who are bleeding cash, and Apple.

    Nice try. Next up you'll say no one should ever listen to Consumer Reports for anything right.

    Find me one actual forum where users are complaining about this.

    I'm not your errand boy, i don't have to find you anything. I've already provided one source. If thats not enough, then feel free to find more yourself. Google is a thing.

    not a forum thread but consumer reports...


    But like I said earlier, i have had a lot of phones last 24 months and I never had the problem, but then I never shoot into the sun in the first place.

    These guys may not be 'complaining' per se but the issue is there on the GS3, GNex, SII and other devices.

    Here are some photos taken with the S3. (sourced from the thread). Your beloved Samsung isn't perfect either.

    And why is it none of those pics have any Meta tags? And I'm not talking about taking pics directly at the sun. Where are the complaints?

    *sigh* you're obstinate. How am i supposed to know why the photos aren't tagged? I didn't take them.

    Users from the thread i got the photos from clearly state what phones they used to take their photos. I don't see what benefits they would get from lying.

    Sign up to Android Central and PM them on why they didn't tag their photos.

    Consumer reports tested the GS3 and found purple haze effects on its camera, you say you don't believe. I then link you to photos from real world users showing the same effect...still not enough.

    I'm not gonna sit here all day answering every single one of your queries.

    Consumer reports didn't even post any photos expect those from the iPhone. Even the comments on that site call BS.

    Next time come with better proof. As I do recall asking for any complaints.
