    You probably already checked this, but you don't have any camera filters activated, do you?

    Whoa. Checked the pix. Either yours has gone bonkers or, by any chance, was your phone hot (temperature-wise) at the time? There are reports flying around that the "Ultrapixel CCD" is very sensitive to heat. Beyond that I think your assessment is right on. Your camera appears to be screwed. Have you taken more "normal" pix in the past and this is a new development?

    Yeah I have taken many normal- see the link in my signature.

    For me the lighting always seems to be the issue. Obviously in your comparison shot the lighting was the same, but I usually have to adjust something to get any good pics. If it's bright and I'm indoors a lot of time I can point and shoot but outdoors or under florescent lighting I'll have to adjust the white balance or the scene. I don't know enough about ISO to make any changes there. Sometimes it's worse than others and now I'm wondering if cadzilla is onto something with the temp of the phone since I pocket carry.

    Mine's the same way OP. The camera on my phone is completely **** at this point.

    i wouldn't know because i've never owned a note 3, and my post was not an attempt to compare its camera to the htc one but rather to show how silly his post was: every phone of every brand and model is susceptible to malfunction.


    if you prefer the note 3 camera over the htc one is all fine but suggesting that this particular poster's issue with his phone's camera is common in the htc one and therefore dropping it in favour of the note 3 is a good idea is ridiculous.

    If he wants a better camera on his phone it's not ridiculous it's necessary

    I have the same problem, had anyone sent in their device for a warranty repair? How long did it take to get back?

    That's why I switched to S4 a month ago.

    The good news is the HTC One 2 is reported to have the same camera.

    Everyone with this problem has to send it in for repair at the HTC repair facility in Houston. There is no other solution. The turnaround time is extremely quick. I had my phone back within a week or so and the repair was as good as new. The new camera sensor is amazing and there is no sign of any purple tinting.

    Yes it still has 4 MP but not the same camera.

    Lol and see you have never owned a Note 3 and are simply going on posts. When people come here and see bad posts they ask should I get an HTC One and you tell them it's all good and to ignore what a few say... Yet you're not taking your advice on another phone.

    I HAVE owned an HTC One and my camera would do the purple thing unless the light was bright enough... So I had the issue... And the OP has an even worse where it looks like it does it all the time. No reason to try and find reasons to bash something you've never even tried. If you read alot of those threads not everyone has the issues posted... Just like the HTC One...

    So yeah... I wasn't bashing it.. It's just mine displayed the purple issue and if it got to where the OP camera is I'd be angry.. I wouldn't want just purple pictures. I know the Note isn't a perfect phone... none are.. But you don't need to try and justify the issue when the purple camera is a KNOWN issue on the HTC One.

    this thread is not about the note 3.


    your post was neither helpful nor relevant.


    if i did or did not own a note 3 is beside the point. good for you if you are enjoying it but the OP's problem is not the "purple tint" issue that some find when using their camera in dark environments or flat against a table. his camera is clearly broken. in comparison, he posted his wife's photo from her camera which works fine and the photo looks damn good to me.


    if you like the note 3 that much perhaps you'll find that forum section more interesting; and even be of more help to those who post there.

    Everything I've read says it will be a 4MP Ultrapixel.

    just to add another note to this ONE vs NOTE battle here,
    although i prefer every aspect of the ONE over the NOTE,
    it's stupidly irresponsible qiuality control let down when HTC release a phone with that big of a problem with the camera sensor.
    this should have been checked. or maybe it was found out too late and they just "rolled" with it.
    as i live in Israel i'll not send in the device for 2 months to be repaired (if at all). i just accept the faulty camera until i'll upgrade the device.

    Stopped by ATT today. They said they had never seen that problem before. Strange.

    Anyway they said I need to call the 800 number and they would send me a new phone. I would keep this one until the new one arrives in a few days.

    Not sure if that is true or not, but I guess we will see. I need to back up all my data before I call because they said they will require a reset before proceeding.

    Not trying to sound ignorant but my friend has the one, I have the note 3, and how can you even compare the cameras? In my opinion the note blows the one's camera out of the water. Love both phones though
