[Gizmodo] Apple Acknowledges iPhone 5 Camera Problem, Says You’re Holding It Wrong - Page 6

post #51 of 269
Well I think its only natural that Apple products' flaws get their own news thread. Are many blown out of proportion? Absolutely, but its the culture that Apple is guilty of perpetuating and when this mantra no longer fits the situation, we get to call them out on it.

They're having an EK moment with their plating lol.

Exactly. They screw up, blame the water. Apple camera screws up, blame the light. Apple housing chips when you tap it, blame the Earth.

It's ... ELEMENTAL.

What next? It explodes when you leave it sit out, blame the air?

I think a few people are missing the point, it's not the flaring doesn't matter because all phone cameras are poor, it matters as it seems a step back from the previous model. For a company that prides itself on innovation and improving what they have, it's going to hurt them if they cut corners on testing or materials, it's also a PR disaster because the media are just waiting to pounce on anything and everything (not just the main problems), just as they did when Microsoft was the giant.

I love how Apple is incapable of admitting they made a mistake. I love how they treat their lemmings.. I mean fan boy's... I mean paying customer's.

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 guess $2000 DSLRs with $2000 lenses are a "step back" from the previous iPhone cameras too. After all, they have a similar purple flare...

Nope,dlsr lenses have strengths and weaknesses, they are made for a particular task, that is why dslrs are great, because they are highly configurable. You can eliminate that flare by using some kind of filter

Point and shoot cameras are different, they are made to be an all rounder, they sould be able to do simple tasks, iphone 4 camera doesn't have this issue, now theiphone 5 does, they overlooked it, they messed up, accept it or not

Pretty sure they will gonna eliminate this problem on their next iphone

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/

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.
