When taking pictures with the Samsung Galaxy S's camera I get a rather large red spot in from the center of the image outwards. I've uploaded an image showing this.
I have the same problem here in Brazil. Last year, I bought a Galaxy S, and the photos had that red color in the center. I went to the store and exchanged it for another one, which had the same problem. I went to the store and returned it. I decided for an iPhone 4. Now, I got bored with iPhone 4 and this week I bought another Galaxy S, it has the same problem (red color in the center of the photo), but I decided to keep it anyway.
For what I see in your post, the red color is a general problem. I just don’t understand why the Samsung has not already corrected that problem.
I have made some tests with the camera, and noticed that the problem occurs in low light conditions, especially under incandescent light, but outdoors the picture is normal.
Maybe the problem could be correct by some software or an update for Samsung.
I looked over in the internet and didn’t find any solution.
So, if somebody knows a solution, please post it here.
It is a hardware fault and it may be unlikely you will find one without it I have only seen one that did not have the issue and it was an early sample. Returned several myself then got my money back Samsung should issue a public statement about this as the camera part of the phone is not fit for its purpose with this fault. probably best to get your money back and wait until Samsung come clean about what is going on with this issue. If you do decide to get a different phone with an 8mpix camera do check it out before buying as it could be to do with the sensor supplier and the same sensor may be used in other phones
