    Default Weird camera hue...Anyone else?

    Hey all.
    I've noticed when taking indoor shots with plenty of light and with average light there's a greenish hue in the centre of the screen.Shows up in the pic too after it's taken. Mostly on white and pale colours.Sometimes seems a little pink when there's more light.

    Anybody experienced this?

    To be honest i'm not that impressed with the camera.

    Cheers.

    I haven't experienced this, my Note 3 always had a yellow hue inside, my S5 does not. Honestly they camera in the S5 has gotten some of the best reviews since the iPhone 5s. Some reviews have said it has passed it. Remember it is just a phone, not a professional camera. But I digress. My pictures have been coming out fantastic. Taken over 2k now.

    True. It's a great camera for a smartphone but I don't know why my one is worse then my previous galaxies. I'm hoping I'll find something that might fix it. It kinda sucks when I want to take a quick indoor shot of my daughter or something.
    Flash does eliminate the weird colour though. We have a 5s as well which is a back up.

    Honestly I have had those phones and this camera out performs the previous ones.

    This may sound a bit silly but are you sure you didn't get something on the lens? it almost sounds like an oily film on the lens from fingerprints or some other foreign substance that came in contact with the lens...If your seeing it in the view finder AND the finished shot it would sound like a lens issue...maybe try a lenses cleaning cloth or spray and see if that helps
    I guess it is possible that the lenses has an imperfection.

    Cheers

    Nope nothing on the lens. Seems clean as.
    The green hue seems to go kind of pink on whites and greys close up in brighter light. Darker light the greenish colour.It's only on close up shots.Other then that it's not visible.
    Something going on in the lens somewhere.

    There is a small piece of packaging plastic on the lens, did you remove that? It's hard to see but if you wipe your finger over the lens, a corner should pop up.

    Well it's hard to see but this shot has a pinky tinge in the centre. This was taken inside average light at daytime. The grey colour usually only shows when i take indoor shots at night time with the lights on.

    The S5 still does'nt cope very well in low light. None of my galaxies ever have unless the flash is on.
