Purple haze all in my frame, iPhone 5 just don't seem the same...

“You’re holding it wrong”

It never ceases to amaze when manufacturers try to convince people that an issue with something they purchased is actually a “feature”. Apple has most recently tried to convince buyers of the iPhone 5 that the purple haze or ring around bright light sources is normal behavior.
An iPhone 5 owner named Matt Van Gastel had been speaking with Apple customer support about the purple flare problem with his iPhone 5. Gizmodo shows images highlighting the difference between photographs taken in the same setting using iPhone 5 compared to the iPhone 4. The purple haze around the sun is readily apparent in the iPhone 5 image, and the same purple discoloration shows up with any bright light source.
After going back and forth with Apple support, Van Gastel received an email back from Apple stating that their engineering team has found a solution to the problem. According to Apple, the solution is to "angle the camera away from the bright light source when taking pictures."
The email also went on to say that the purple flare noted in images provided to customer service is "normal behavior for the iPhone 5s camera."
Gizmodo reports that some photography experts believe that the purple flare problem is caused by the sapphire glass that covers the iPhone 5 camera sensor.

When have I attacked Android kit? I have often said that buying Android makes perfect sense for some people and I have wished, and continued to wish, Android customers all the best with their products. Some Fandroids on the other hand like to hurl absurd insults casually at tens of millions of Apple customers. It's that sort of behaviour that reminds me of Beavis and Butt-Head. Loser sniggering in basements.

I think you confuse defending Apple with attacking Android kit.

I have to confess in a recent post linking to a comparative iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 drop test but that was not to attack Android but just to point out how well the iPhone 5 performed.

By the way there have been a few more comparative Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 drop tests since then, they are here

Guess which handset won?

No, just morons like you.
