Default Camera question

If you use the camera in almost complete darkness, do you have pink and blue around the edges of the screen?

I noticed this the other day and it concerned me. I had huge issues(as did lots of people) with my HTC One with pink in the camera, and don't want to end up with similar issues.

Might contact support for a replacement.

In low light, pointed at my green blanket, parts of the blanket will have a red tint. That's the only time I ever noticed it so it didn't concern me.

Set ISO to 800 and turn off HDR, face detection, image stabilization and all that stuff. It should help improve the quality a bit.

This is mine. It's the only time the red tint appears.

The pink in the middle issue is different.

I don't understand why these companies have such bad quality control when it comes to the camera. It seems to be a major issue with every manufacturer at some point.
