When you have an off-screen light source the iPhone 5′s lens turns the light into a purplish hue, rather than the bright white color the light would be when it’s on-screen. All lenses have lens flare, and sometimes it’s purple, but the iPhone 5′s seemed to be more pronounced that others.

How Was Everyone So Wrong About The @$#!ing iPhone 5? [Punk’d]
