    Yes. My 6 plus does it. This is called ghosting or lens flare. It just means that the optics are not fully multi-coated to eliminate all internal reflections.

    It's normal and not a defect? I guess I never bothered taking night photos with the 5 to notice this. Is there anyway to eliminate this? Thanks for your reply.

    Yes it is normal. When the optics of a camera are not multi coated, they will have internal reflections like that from bright pinpoints of light or the sun. The reflections can be removed in processing with certain apps like Photoshop, you would simply clone them out. The only way to eliminate it is to not point the camera at bright lights which is nearly impossible these days...
