I'm assuming something went wrong when you cut the sim. I'd suggest getting a new sim and trying again. How did you unlock the phone?I just recently unlocked my iPhone 5 and cut my tmobile microsim to nanosim to work with the iPhone5. Everything works except my mobile network or I guess cellular data. Need help
Well I am sure that is a given also.I assumed the sapphire cover was there for increased protection of the actual lens.
I think it's possible that it makes the purple haze worse. I haven't researched this, but I've been wondering what hardware in the iPhone 5 makes the purple haze effect more dramatic than it is in the older iPhones. I initially thought it might have been a side effect of the better low-light capabilities, but the lens cover being the culprit is plausible. It's pretty much a non-issue for me since I don't take pictures of bright lights, so I haven't bothered spending much time looking into it.But if the sapphire lens cover causes the purple haze, what about the Android phones and others that exhibit the same problem?
Also, your posted article doesn't link the sapphire lens cover with better low light handling.
