This is a well known issue already... for months...
I sent my HTC One back to the service centre in Dec'13 & got it back in Jan'14... waited nearly 1 month...
So far, no more purple tint & i'm happy with the camera now...
Send back your phone now & don't wait for software update... i think that is the only solution...
HTC one has some issues in its camera. Look the below links
All my friends those who won htc one has the same issues. This issue was not yet fixed in latest update.
Is any solution for this?
I've never understand why people don't see that HTC develops superior quality devices, the construction of this phone is amazing, the full aluminium body in a surprisingly light phone is really more than what I expected to be. The sense 5 is quite nice, makes it look very elegant and stylish. This device is certainly a premium product, far away from that cheap-plastic feel you get from other cellphones around.
I'm using HTC One from two weeks now...and I used to love Nokia. But, GOD, from the very first moment I touched this beauty, I'm in love with it. It's like touching a beautiful and virgin woman, a first love story...Best smartphone ever produced!!!
The HTC One is a very great phone. Excellent design, well rounded UI, updates come to devices as fast as iOS devices, and the camera is well rounded offering great quality and good low light performance. I would highly recommend getting this device.

akash21, 12 Jan 2014HTC one vs LG G2 .. which one is better ???Definitely HTC mate. I have used and returned the LG and now using the HTC. It beats it in many ways. LG laggs a lot. Hard to hold. HTC is smooth well built camera is a beauty. If u get one make sure it doesn't have purple tint and doesn't get hot. They r related. If it gets hot it gives purple tint. Return and get a new one.
keshu, 08 Jan 2014I have HTC ONE, can I install 4.4 KITKAT direct without installing 4.2 & 4.3?Cannot install in Pookkottumpadam ,Malappuram
Definitely u need to backup all your important contacts, data & settings.. & if p&c, delete them after backup..
HTC has built in backup or u may download apps to do it for u..
Mine before sent in using 4.1.2 with Sense 5 but after returned, they upgraded to 4.3 with Sense 5.5.. so, everything is gone, it's like brand new out of the box..

I have a question, so before you give your phone to them, do you need to erase all the data in your phone and back it up?
I have use 6 mobiles of htc. In every mobile I face problems like battery, WiFi signal, camera, hang etc. Now I wil never buy htc.
Anyone using a jays one plus earphone for HTC one? Is that better for HTC one? Or tell me a better earphone model for HTC one.

I own HTC One, never update the Android system (still using 4.1.2 since out of the box), but after 3 months use, the purple tint issue started..
If you like the features of HTC One, i suggest you go for Butterfly S or One Max.. so far, didn't notice any problem about these 2 devices..
