Thanks for the warm welcome back ive been really busy lately working. I am glad to hear that this issue is not something new then! I never had this issue with any of my iPhone's dating all the way back to 2007 however when I phoned Apple they told me that it was a design flaw with the camera system and that engineers are working on a fix. It's weird because it's not every picture it seems to be maybe 1 picture out of 40 taken which isn't bad at all.

The purple haze is a known issue on iPhones as well as Android phones. Exchanges aren't going to help. It's a characteristic of the hardware.

I'm actually surprised Apple gave you a second iP5 considering it's a known issue, and one that has been acknowledged by Apple! You're must have a Genius Bar (and an Apple Store manager) that really wanted to get you out of there ASAP. Was it near closing time when you went?

This is over my head... Have you gotten away with similar issues for handset exchanges? The little scratches and scuffs don't count... those would be major issues in my book. But if if it's none of my businesss don't hesitate to tell me...

All I'm going to say here is - do a search.

No I didn't get it from Apple I just purchased my iP5 roughly 2 weeks ago from radio shack when we signed up for sprint. When I first noticed the issue I called Apple about it and I told her on the phone that I was going to go the radio shack route first but she told me over the phone that if that did not work (which it did) that Apple would replace it.

I know this off topic but I didn't want to create another thread ... does anyone have the new Spigen GLAS.tr for the iP5? If so how is the fitment? I have the otterbox commuter and I want to make sure it's "case friendly" the youtube video's just don't do it justice.
