A while ago, I got a new HTC One m7, It is the best phone I've had, but it has one BIG issue, its camera sucks on low light.
I've investigated the issue, and I was told it could be alleviated with a software update, and it's been almost a year, and nothing.
The problem is in fact a hardware issue, where heat causes something on the camera, so it adds this annoying purple stripes/haze: Stripes Image, Tint image. And this hardware issue comes, apparently because there is a lot of strain on a chip (Zoe?).
Photos taken with flash look extremely good though. So my question is... Why does this happen?
I'm not looking to know what causes the phone to heat up. I'm asking why would purple tint/stripes appear there.
What is happening to the lens? or... is affecting the image processor chip? if so, in what way?
Or... is it caused by something else?
And... How come it does not affect my flash-taken-photos?
