    I bought my white iPhone 4S Friday last week, when it came out in Denmark. I've been happy with it, but yesterday I found a pretty huge problem.
    I wanted to take a picture last night, so I used the flash. But for some reason the light is shining on the camera, destroying the picture. I took several pics and it's the same on all of them.

    Has anybody else seen this problem?

    Was that also a white one. I'm wondering if that's the problem.

    Since there are now Apple stores in Denmark, I'll take it to the Telia (carrier) store I bought it in.

    What case do you have on it? (if any?) I had this issue with my 4 when I was using a case with a transparent back. The flash would cause the whole back to illuminate, causing the same symptoms. If the case is off and there's no film, then there's a problem, but check those things first.

    If you have a case on, take it off and see if it still does it.

    There is no plastic on the lense and I'm not using a case.

    So other people with the white 4S are not having this problem?

    I have the same issue. But i noticed that when I take picture for object within 1-1.5 meters, the picture is fine, however, for a object in far distance i get the same result as you did.

    oh sorry didn't see you already tried that, I used to have this issue on a BLACK old iPhone 4! with back plastic covers and some iPhone cases...whenever they were out, the issue was fixed

    Yeah it's only if the flash can't reach the object. Or at least that's only when I notice it. Is it just the same way on your phone? And is that a white 4S?

    It has been reported before that the white iP4S are having these problems. Not all of them but some are seeing the same thing.
