Google Nexus 4 Exhibits Purple Haze Under Certain Circumstances

Advertisement

When the iPhone 5 came out we’ve seen reports of a purple haze being generated by reflections and refractions of the camera lens or heavy load of the sensor (which Apple considers normal) and Consumer Reports weighed in on the matter saying that it is not worse than the Galaxy S III. We have also, with multiple occasions (in writing and on the Podcast), stated that the behavior is common to most smartphones and non-pro cameras to a certain extent.

It appears that this year’s Google Nexus 4, made by LG, is displaying the same purple haze, under similar circumstances, with fairly similar result. As you can see in the image above, part of a Photo Sphere image, the bright lights in the frame seem to produce image discoloration. We’re going to take this opportunity to say, again, that this behavior is normal under these specific circumstances and there’s nothing wrong with the Nexus 4, just like there’s nothing wrong with the iPhone 5, Galaxy S III, or HTC One X from this point of view. Just stick to ‘Photography 101’ and avoid shooting against heavy lights (or live with the consequences).
