Usually, people would rather trade in their whatever brand of smartphone for an iPhone 5, but I did the opposite. I ran away from iPhone 5 by gave it away to a family member, bought Lumia 920 instead. What’s the big deal you ask? Probably not to you, but it’s to me. I like to think that I had successfully completed a challenge, and the challenge was for me to break away from iOS ecosystem. Basically, once you’re tied into any digital ecosystem, whether that be iOS ecosystem, it would be super hard to break away from it. Unless many digital ecosystems begin to have the same amount of apps and features, breaking away from one digital ecosystem for another is like to throw away all the money you had spent in one ecosystem for all that time. For me, it wasn’t a big deal and I did not break any sweat. How come? Well, watch the video right after the break and you will know. Within the video right after the break, I also make a brief comparison between iPhone 5 and Lumia 920. So, enjoy!!!
Previously, I’d posted “iPhone 5 Purple Halo Camera Glitch.” This time, I like to post a Lightroom 4 Photo Fun session in which I had used Lightroom 4 to fix the purple halo iPhone 5 camera glitch for one of the photos that I had took with iPhone 5 glitchy camera. Anyhow, to add a finished touch, I changed the tone of this very photo. The result is right after the break. I hope you like it. Enjoy!!!

To tell the truth, it was not easy at all to fix the purple halo iPhone 5 camera glitch for one of the affected photos. It was time consuming even though I used awesome Lightroom 4 software. I think Apple has to fix this issue fast or else it will be a huge time waster for people who actually use iPhone 5 camera to take lot of photos. Nonetheless, one can easily avoid the purple halo iPhone 5 camera glitch by not pointing the iPhone 5 camera at any light source. With that being said, Apple should not relax and work harder to fix the glitchy iPhone 5 camera. After all, this is not the first iPhone, but it’s the 6th iPhone iteration (i.e., iPhone 4S is the 5th iPhone iteration).
I have a mixed bag of a personal customer satisfaction for iPhone 5 really! On one hand, it’s a more powerful device than the older iPhone iterations, but on the other hand iPhone 5 does have few quirks that are really bothering me. Such quirks are Wi-Fi slowness occurs from time to time (i.e., sometimes it’s fine) and purple halo camera glitch. Nonetheless, with that being said, I find iPhone 5′s adoption of true LTE (i.e., real 4G speed) is quite pleasing. Please check out the video right after the break to see the speed test of iPhone 5 LTE on AT&T LTE network.
Techradar’s “iPhone 5 users report ‘purple halo‘ camera glitch” article reported that iPhone 5′s camera injects purple halo into photos, and this only happens when a light source gets captured near the edge of the photos. I tested this problem out myself and found the same purple halo glitch for iPhone 5 camera. Perhaps, I have to go to Genius Bar (Apple store customer service) to see if they can help me out on resolving this issue, because taking error free picture means a lot to me. Sure, I can totally correct the purple halo issue in any photo with Lightroom 4 software, but having to know that iPhone 5′s camera can inject incorrect tint color into my photos is really bothering me somehow. Anyhow, I took two photos in my room just to prove that even artificial source of light can trigger the purple halo glitch for iPhone 5 camera, and you can check these photos out right after the break.
