    Hi,

    Earlier today I noticed som differences in my photos with my new iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4 (my brother's). The iPhone 5 looked washed out, and rather the iPhone 4 had more pop, and darker blacks. Is this normal or should I be concerned?
    Left is iPhone 4 and right is iPhone 5...

    Thanks for your opinion.

    Personally I think the pic on the right is much better at giving realistic color representation. Just my 2 cents.

    The one on the left's focus point is more to the left side of the picture then the pic on the right.

    But the photo on the right looks better to me.

    The iPhone 4 camera seems to show the black on the chip bag with a greenish tint.

    The 4 picture seems yellow-y. The 5 picture definitely looks more true.

    Thanks for your replies. I had a white balance earlier in the day with the iPhone 5, but since then it has been better, but still feel the contrast was very washed out and doesn't live up to the other comparisons I have seen. Guess I will have to adjust.

    Here is the concerning shot from earlier today, but it has been better since.
    Just weird it had a blue tint over the photo from the iPhone 5...
