    I got the purple malfunction on my HTC One. It under warranty. So I called at t and they have the program where they don't leave you without a phone and they will send you a replacement. So far they sent two replacement s and they both had a malfunction. One even came out of the box with the purple malfunction on the camera. Will they ever send me a proper working HTC one without the purple malfunction? What do I do? Just keep on waiting tell they send me a proper phone?

    Personally I'd go thru htc if your having the same issues. I spoke to them about about my faulty speaker and they were very easy to deal with.

    After spending the day with my family at a aquarium and not being able to take one decent picture, I think that I've procrastinated long enough to send it in. Getting on the phone right now with HTC.

    When you go thru Htc they FIX your phone rather than just replace it. Then the issue is solved. Might take a week to 10 days but worth it if you're left with a good working phone

    You may still. Chances are they'll factory reset your phone but really i cant speak for them on that part.

    While I do take pics with my phone, for "important" stuff I'll bring a digital camera.

    I wonder if they have a bad lot of camera modules or is this a software issue. I've had an HTC One since release week and haven't had an issue. But I did ROM it pretty quick, and after trying a few, I have stuck with Viper.

    Can you please post a pic or two for evaluation ???

    I shipped mine yesterday, the first thing I was told was that the phone will be factory reset. I used Helium to back up all my apps and data. No root required.

    Got my phone back about a week ago, couldn't get my hands on it till today. They've sent me a different phone. Looks brand new, so I'm assuming it's a refurbished unit. The camera is working great.

    Not sure what's going to happen when I restore the backup that I made with Helium. The HTC backup restore worked very well, got all my apps back (even Flappy Birds )...

    So I guess I had to wait 12 days for what Apple costumers get when they walk into the store with a warranty problem.
