    fuck me. i thought that was glare off your marble countertop. if that's the lens flare, then that's a REAL big problem.

    Ok, you got me curious. Can one of you post a link to this? I can't find it.

    That's not purple and I don't believe is related to this issue. It doesn't look at all like the images of the "purple haze" that are floating around. Let me dig up some pics as an example.

    EDIT: Looking at Pio's image again, that looks like light reflecting from a source in his room. Not any type of "blooming" from his camera lens.

    I'm going to agree with mouse that the screen size adjustment is pretty silly.

    When holding the phone in landscape, it does help the typing, but then it also consumes more vertical space as well and you really lose just about all of the screen real estate.

    Most of my apps still compress the screen to its old size anyways, meaning everything is "letterboxed", so to speak.

    I would have liked a slightly larger screen, period. Just stretching it didn't add much, and actually just makes things kind of awkward instead.

    that's pretty much what i was going to say. i saw some of the purple haze shots, and they looked nothing like that.

    Tokyo Slim is loving the hell out of this thread.

    I never thought I'd compare Piob to Katie Holmes, but.......

    It's got to be the AR coating on the glass over the lens. Anyone with an AR coated watch crystal knows that color!

    This is the photo that Mashable took and has been passing around. The problem with it is that the images were not taken at the same angle. Thus it's not a direct comparison.

    Yup. That's the article I linked to earlier in this thread. No skin in the game and a much better understanding of the subject then most.

    It looks pretty purple on my screen in my camera roll. Make of it what you will.

    If your iPhone is showing that as purple then it's definitely a POS. Take it back to the store immediately.

    Btw, it rattles too. Not badly, not quite like what Frog reported, but like when I sit it down on my desk or something..just a little rattle.

    Ok this thread has taught us that Pio has trouble reading normal sized fonts, needs small portraits to recognize friends names and may be mildly color blind. It's all starting to make sense. ;)
