    This one confuses me because I thought I had some issue with the camera sensor, so for kicks I decided to try the front camera and it demonstrated the same issue.

    a large green spot, center frame, especially visible on white, or whitish surfaces. under all types of lighting conditions...

    I have the exact same problem. I hope there is a way to fix this because I already applied my invisible shield...

    Same Issue

    I'm experiencing the same issue, only on the bottom of the screen/lens. I also applied the InvisibleShield. Think the liquid could have caused this?

    I can confirm this is not a problem caused by the screen shield. Without this thread, i wouldnt have noticed it. Definitely going to have to return it now

    I suggest that people check to see if they have the same problem...

    I can only get it to look green when I take a picture of my LCD. I can't reproduce the effect with any other pictures.
    Can anyone else see it without looking at their screen? Like looking at a blank white wall or something?
    Maybe it's an interference problem with the LCD :confused: .

    EDIT: Nvm, didn't see post above ^^^

    That happens to be a picture of my refrigerator, if anyone cares. So i have all 5 well known problems with the iphone so far; A sticky + button, yellow blotches, antenna issues, green spots on the camera and below average call volume...great!

    ETA I had the exact same issue. Twice.

    Exchanged with a genius appointment... wasn't any problem since it was apparent.

    They said that when taking a picture - sometimes there's a blue-ish tint/haze. But that tint should NOT actually appear on the picture.

    They did on mine for two phones. And I do think whatever the issue was - also affected lighting balance/white balance because on both of those other phones, my pictures were very yellow or overall just poor.

    Got a new one today and everything it great.

    But I hate returning devices with no guarantee of improvement with the new one.

    Cant you just test the camera and yellow spot problem there with the new one before you leave?

    probably a software issue since it happens with both cameras

    Plant 86 week 25, no green spot.

    Are you in a room with CFL or any sort of fluorescent lighting? Your MBP has a CFL backlight you know :p

    Fluorescent lighting will cause the green tint, the iPhones lens or one of the elements tends to over exagerate it for some reason (if you look at the lens its already a green'ish tint). I noticed I have the same green tint at my office, outside no green tint. My house is mainly CFL, during the evening I can see a slight green tint against my wall, in the day with natural light no green tint on the same wall.

    This is not an issue with the phone, its the type of lighting that you are in and its affect on the camera lens. I'm surprised a photographer hasn't already chimed in here on this considering how many of them are on this forum.

    Size and shape of the tint appears to be consistent across these images, however.

    Considering how some phones dont have this effect, im pretty sure it is a software issue.
