Lightbulb HTC One camera purple tint possible fix

Just want to let every developer know, I have a possible way to fix the purple tint.
This is my findings...

When you set your saturation and explosure to -1, the purple tint just gone. But saturation -1 seems too much for the photo. It is ideal to have -0.5 or somthing.

It is nice that if a developer know how to modify the Camera setting and make it default.

It definitely has to do something with the saturation..

My resaults:
1. Saturation -2 others 0 - no purple tint but white tint on the sides.
2. Saturation -2 contrast +2 - no purple tint at all and even less white tint! Though i didn't try to snap a photo.
3. Saturation +2 - my screen is ****ing red!!

It's annoying. I had a phone replaced because it had really bad blue and sometimes purple tints in low light pics.

The replacement was fine. I then upgraded to 4.3 (ARHD) with the newest firmware (3.22) and the problem has returned. I still have a nandroid of 4.2.2 so may downgrade.

It'll remain, not sure why but it does.

Funny, i still think this is hardware related, while many people report that at ISO 100 it disappears mine still shows it, even with this trick mine was still pink unless the saturation was at -2 which turns pictures black and white.

It's deft hardware related, not software.. The setting adjustments you talk about might 'lessen' the haze, bit it ruins the picture.. They are bad/wrongly positioned sensors within the phone itself. Unfortunately

I think it's heat related. Seems that the red /purple gets worse when phone is running hot
