IPhone 4 and 5 are different cameras, different lenses, different issues...
so, what is the issue with iphone 4's camera?
iPhone 4 is 5 megapixel, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 are 8 megapixel.
iPhone 4S handles low-light situations better than the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 5 handle low-light situations much better than the 4S.
iPhone 4S had 5 plastic optical elements, the iPhone 4 had 4 plastic optical elements.
iPhone 4S added a hybrid IR filter, and had better color accuracy than the iPhone 4.
The iPhone 4 had a problem in certain lighting conditions (often caused by the LED on the iPhone 4) with having a circle of green color in the center of the image, this was fixed in the iPhone 4S.
Here's the differences between the iPhone 4 and 4S as reviewed by Anandtech: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4971/apple-iphone-4s-review-att-verizon/11
The iPhone 5 has better noise reduction for images over the iPhone 4S and 4.
The iPhone 5's lens is protected by sapphire crystal which is more scratch resistant than previous iPhones and also more clear.
There might be more, that's all I can think of at the moment. Here's a review comparing the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and Samsung S3: http://mashable.com/2012/09/30/smartphone-camera-shootout/

My Mother, Step dad, brother, and sister all use an Iphone 4, Within 6 months each phone had glitch's or problem's. What are the odd's that 4 people under the same roof buy the same device and all 4 have issue's.
None of the issue's are caused by poor operation of the phone, they just broke or never fully worked. Each one was basicly told "your doing it wrong".
My Step Dad was actually told to smack his phone on the table after turning on Wifi to get it to pick up network's... Oddly enough the phone dosn't respond well to being smacked around..
Here's to hoping that people wise up and move from such an overpriced worthless device. I will take my cheap Samsung Vitality (cricket phone, pretty decent one for the price too!) over an apple any day..
I think your family may have had some bad luck. The company I work for develops iOS and Android games, we have about 75 iOS devices and 30-40 Android devices laying around, of all of those devices I believe 1 Android and 1 iOS device had to be serviced in the last year (was an iPhone in which the home button didn't always respond). Maybe we got lucky, maybe your family was unlucky, but I'm not sure your case was typical enough that the entire brand should be judged as unreliable.Edited by lordikon - 10/2/12 at 6:49am
