Anyone with this issue? I remember having a similar problem with my HD2 to begin with.

Just checked and I've got it aswell, never noticed before. It's been reported a lot on the G S2, hopefully an update will sort it.

Cheers. As long as its not just mine I wont return it and, like you, will hope for an update to fix it.

Bit annoyed my last two mobiles have had this issue though, how difficult can it be to release a flagship phone without a simple problem like this?

I've always had exactly the same thing on my SGS. I only see it on indoor shots, or low light outdoors.

Edit: A little Googling turns up some additional info. HTC says SW problem. Also an indication it's on many devices and due to white balance adjustment.

Yep, me!

Still in doubt about returning the device:

My first post here, so can not yet post direct links to a few examples I have. Maybe it works like this, if you copy paste these in your browser:

I really wanted to share these examples...

It is not a hardware fault, it is a restriction in the lens.
Most of the leading manufacturers have this as they use the same system in constructing the lens.
The only way is by having a software update.

The HTC HD & HD2 had it bad and although not entirely cured a software fix lowered a lot of the issue.
Samsung are aware of it and hopefully we should see some sort of 'makeup' to correct the problem.

As already mentioned the only time you will notice it is indoors on a plain light coloured wall.
When outside the sensor is not working so hard as there is a lot more light, as such it is then hardly if any noticed.

You can lower it yourself as a temporary step by going into the phones settings:-
Settings/Display/Background Effect/ and select Movie.
It dampens down the colours and as such washes out the strength of the pink.
