Apple is already receiving bundles of complaints over it's newest device the
i phone 5. So we ask the question. Is this expensive device worth all your hard earned cash?

The Apple I Phone 5, Is It Worth All The Hype? Is It Worth Parting with Your Hard Earned Cash

Apple has been facing a number of complaints from users panicking that their new I phone 5 exhibited a ‘purple haze’ effect when taking pictures. Despite attempts to explain the issue affects many camera sensors, Apple has been forced to post a support advisory on its website to discuss the problem with users and how to resolve it.

The Support advisory doesn’t state that the issue is iPhone 5-specific, but highlights symptoms as “a purple/pinkish, haze, or spot is imaged from out-of-scene bright light sources during taking still images. During September this year this issue was discussed by apple and it was said this problem occurred in most smartphones. They also took a picture comparison of the I phone 4s and the i phone 5. They both have a purple/pinkish haze within the two pictures.

Apple explained that every generation of I phone may experience these haze affects or have some kind of spot at the edge of the frame while capturing a image or having the I phone at an angle that light is then reflected off the surfaces of the inside of the camera module.

Apple’s explanation of the phenomenon highlights that every generation of the i phone may “exhibit some form of flare at the edge of the frame when capturing an image with out-of-scene light sources,” and that it often happens when a device is angled such a way that light is reflected off surfaces inside of the camera module, directly into the sensor. They also said by moving the camera slightly to change the position at which the bright light is entering the lens, or covering the lens with your hand, should minimize or eliminate the effect.

Now we ask the question; Are Apple I phones all they are cracked up to be?

The I phone 4 has had a variety of problems such as communication issues, connection issues and freezing screens, and speaker issues where only one of the speakers out of the two would function. The I phone 4S has proved to be a lot better than the I phone 4 where the speakers are a lot more clearer and conversation can be made, which lets face it this is one of the main functions we all want to use. The I phone 5 has a slight camera improvement over the I phone 4S; it features sapphire crystal lens covering, increased noise reduction and low -light features, but is it worth your hard earned cash to have such an expensive device which encounters the same problems over and over again with each generation of I phone product being made. I my opinion who wants a device that can freeze it's screen or not be able to hold a telephone conversation because it cuts you off half way through. I just hope the Apple I phone 5 can prove an expensive device like this can really have all it's functions working. Proof will be in the pudding I guess.
