Is the iPhone 5 one of the most maligned smartphones to launch in recent memory, or does it just seem that way? We’ve been keeping on top of all the complaints, whether we’re talking about a scratch-prone exterior or a glitchy on-screen keyboard. The latest to hit our radar deals with the phone’s camera, which users are reporting captures a mysterious purple haze when there’s a bright light nearby.

A similar issue had been noticed on earlier iPhones, but it’s apparently far more pronounced on the new iPhone 5. It occurs when an intense light source is just outside the scene you’re photographing, casting a purplish-pink aura into the frame.

For the moment, no one seems to be exactly sure just what’s causing the camera to behave in such a manner, but it’s clear that the effect is unappreciated. That said, it does seem relatively easy to avoid, either by re-framing your shot or blocking the offending light.

Have any new iPhone 5 owners noticed this happening in any of your shots? Do you feel like its another big failure, or is this one flaw you can live with?
