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.

So Purple Haze is normal, imperfections on the exterior case are normal. I did hear one of the LCD manufactures (Sharp) and several different companies are used for the iPhone 5 just couldn't figure out how to get the LCD right. FYI the touchscreen is no longer a separate layer sitting on top of the LCD, the touchscreen is built into the touchscreen AKA a thinner iPhone 5. Those maps, another major F'up. Hurry up and crawl back to Google Apple.
