Default [Q] About to buy HTC ONE, few questions.

Hi guys, I'm about to buy a second hand HTC ONE but I heard that trhe camera has a defect, purple tint.

-How can I check if it does have the defect?
-Is it something that happens over time?
-Is there anything I should know before I make this purchase?

Thank you!

Basically everything can be found in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2465651
If it has the faulty sensor, it'll produce purple images (try covering the lens or use dark environment.

Thank you for replying, this is bad. I'm really reluctant to buy this second hand phone now. Does it happen over time or do some devices just come with it?

Depends on when it was made and probably market region. But in the thread I posted there are instructions how to check it.
I never checked mine, because it's easy to tell that I have a faulty one

Okay, thanks. Is there anything else I should know?

Thank you!
Buy it from eBay. If it comes with a faulty camera you can easily get your money back.
