Shortly after the release of Google latest smartphone, Nexus 4, a report has surfaced in the smarthpone world that the LG manufactured smartphone and iPhone 5 have one thing is common and that is the purple haze issue.
A Google+ user has uploaded some pictures taken by the Google's handset which is showing a purple flare, a defect which appears in pictures taken with the camera whenever it is pointed toward a bright light.
Last month when Apple's next biggest iPhone 5 went on sale, some disappointed owners of the new smartphone started complaining the purple color came from the camera. At first, Apple denied the issue stating that the purple haze produced by the iPhone 5"s camera depends on how mobile users are framing. In addition, an AppleCare representative replied to an iPhone 5 user"s complaint regarding the issue of finding the color was “considered normal behavior “for the iPhone 5"s camera.
However, after a couple of days, the Cupertino giant accepted the issue and reportedly posted that “you can find purple color when a light source is positioned at an angle (usually just outside the field of view) so that it causes a reflection off the surfaces inside the camera module and onto the camera sensor. Moving the camera slightly to change the position at which the bright light is entering the lens, or shielding the lens with your hand, should minimize or eliminate the effect."
Hope Google or LG will also come with an explanation soon on the same issue.
