I have the AT&T HTC One which I fully converted to the Google Play Edition. It is currently running stock 4.4.2. I don't remember noticing this problem prior to updating to 4.4, but there are purple clouds/streaks that show up in pictures I take with the stock camera app. They show up more in darker pictures, but they are still there in brightly lit pictures, you just can't really see them. Please see the attachments for examples.

I tried wiping the lens off and then cleaning it, but it seems to be a software or hardware problem. I am planning on flashing the AT&T RUU when I get a chance to see if that helps, just really hoping it's not a hardware problem that I have to send back. I flashed ViperOne Rom on it with the same problem (didn't change firmware though). I also refreshed the GPE RUU and the problem persisted. Has anyone else had this problem? I looked around and didn't see this problem referenced anywhere.

I had the same problem out of the box.
It's an internal camera hardware fault,you should ask for a swap
