    After taking several pictures with my iPhone 4s, I have came to the conclusion that there may be an issue with the optics. If you look at the kid on the far right in the orange you will notice that his head is slightly stretched "warped" and favors the right side. I only noticed this issue after I was looking at them enlarged on my iMac.

    I did another test with graph paper to see if I could reproduce the results.

    Take a look at the 2 images below.


    1st image is taken with my iPhone 4s - notice that the lines are not parallel and are skewed quite a bit.

    2nd image is taken with a friends iPhone 4s - the lines are more parrallel and do not show much distortion.


    Has anyone else seen this issue ?

    Just tested this one my iPhone. No problem. Maybe get yours replaced?

    Maybe the fact that the kid is a little "Husky" (trying to be polite) is the culprit for his face looking like that? Few less cans of soda.

    Already have an appointment at the Apple Store tomorrow to get it replaced (assuming they have a 64GB AT&T white in stock).

    The kid may be little huskey but that doesn't contribute to a "warped" head :)

    The graph paper clearly illustrates the issue.
