If you’re one of the privileged few who already owns an iPhone 5 and plans to take pictures with its revamped 8MP snapper, you might want to “angle the camera away from the bright light source” ‘cause if not your images will suffer from Purple Flare.

In essence, that was the reply that an iPhone 5 owner got from an Apple Care support representative when his Purple Flare issue was escalated to the Cupertino based company’s “engineering team”. The disappointed owner leaked the copy of the email reply to Gizmodo, who also happens to be one of their avid readers.

Purpleflare

It is said that the flare is caused by the camera’s sapphire glass coating. So if you happen to snap a picture with your iPhone 5 and noticed a purple flare, don’t be alarmed as it is “considered a normal behavior” as per Apple.

Quality Assurance Fail. These are the words that I can say about iPhone 5. What’s worse is that they treat a hardware defect as “normal”. WTF Apple. Apple is definitely getting worse since the day Steve Jobs died.

I’m very sure that Steve Jobs is disappointed right now in heaven.

First, scratches. Second, the camera’s purple flare. What’s next?

How come they can act as if everything’s normal?! Hahaha!

sabi daw nila wag mag pre-order. nabiktima na ako dati ng n8. buti na lang kung software, mahirap kung hardware or design issues talaga.

there’s no such thing as a perfect device, pag ganon wala na sila negosyo.

We did not notice that in our review unit so we think it’s an isolated case.

That’s normal! Before windows 7 we have Vista, Before Iphone 4s we have Iphone 4… Iphone 5s would have lesser bugs and more features :) Consider the first release as beta versions. haha.

Is it me or medyo half baked tong Iphone 5, I’ve watched/read some reviews and yes on technical side it might be great but the way they executed some of the features are questionable. And no i won’t blame steve jobs or his protege whatever because i just don’t roll that way.
