    Below is a picture taken with some backlight and no flash.

    Below is a picture taken with the flash on in a relatively dark environment.


    The only thing I can think of is the camera has debris in it for the top picture but have no clue as to why the flash is "flashing back" in the bottom one.

    Warranty repair is out of the option because the front glass/digitizer/lcd and rear glass was replaced by me. I bought it off a kid and fixed it myself. The phone works great, just having some camera issues. Also, the outside part of the glass is clean as a whistle. So outside gunk/debris is ruled out.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!

    cheap rear replacement is letting the flash illumination leak into the camera. i suspect an oem rear panel would fix it.
