Never heard this complaint before iphone5! Never saw it in Android phones!
I never had this problem with any of my phones! Ever…
From hundreds of pictures i’ve taken all this years with all my smartphones, i haven’t got this purple flare in any of them, not one!
We never heard complaints before, just with iphone5.
So its Not Normal to smartphones to have this issue!

Cust: 'Apple! how come the camera got purple haze?'
Apple: 'Cust, the way you take the photo is wrong, don't you know that every good photographer will not point the camera directly to the sun???????? what a F****NG BL***Y ID**T CUST!!! Stop complaining!' lolx.. just kidding. I just found that the way they respond to this issue is pretty similar to antennagate issue last time.

Guys, stop whining. Just buy an iPhone 5 (if you have the money) and see how awesome it is.

Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9
8.5 mm thinckness
116 g (weight)
480 x 800 pixels, 4.3 inches (hmm yea not 1000px)

cmon man you cant really compare iphone spec with androids spec, . . all iphone have just is OS, and thats it, i remembered the reaction of my friend who has iphone 4 , when he looked my newly unboxed galaxy s2 last year, "116gr?its so light,it feels like a toy phone, there is no grip on it, feels cheap " . . and then 1 year later -,- "my god iphone 5 its so light, nothing lighter than iphone , its the best!" zzz what an hypocrite.

Let's see

1) battery issue
2) scuff on the metal
3) purple stuff
4) map not working
5) poor LCD quality

Then more related issues
1) inhuman labour in foxconn factory
2) lawsuit
3) unimpressive hardware
4) change of the charging cable

What else?

Haha, I am in disbelief that people are still dying to get this mid-functioning, malfunctioning and sub-functioning smartphone. In fact, let's just call it a phone because it is lesser than iP4S. It's a step back, not a true leap with all the non-properly working aspects:

*Maps unusable since incomplete
*Signal weakened by touching the metal back with your hand
*Back and sides prone to scratches with paint chipping off with poor manufacturing & quality control - explained as totally normal by Apple's marketing department
*Battery drains faster than promised 8 hours of use
*Loose internal part rattles when shaken
*Wi-Fi connection issues with the new OS
*Can't use phone and LTE data at the same time
*You need to pay $30 for an adaptor so you can connect with your expensive accessories
*Only records mono audio even for 1080p video recording
*And now this - purple lens haze explained as perfectly normal

Yes, because you believe in this product, enough to say that those are okay - perfectly nothing wrong and normal.

but what i hate about apple, is the people who used it, yes iphone is good, but not the best, it has so many issue even in its 5th release, and i CAN afford iphones, but i know it doesnt fit my daily needs , especially the connectivity part , it holds me to connect to others (by "others" i mean NON apple product). and apple fans keep trying to mock others just like apple did with other company.

iPhone users simply don't care on these issues. Even if it has a million flaws, it's still the most perfect phone for them. We android users don't have to hate iphone because it's just an iphone.
