Well that's a problem that nearly everyone has.. could you please take a picture with the pattern and upload it?

A temporary fix for this is changing your ISO to different settings, but that doesn't always work (didn't work for me, for instance).

The best solution is getting HTC or Sprint to fix your camera/replace your phone as it's a hardware issue apparently, although it seems like it would be a software issue.

HTC told me my phone is now "out of warranty" (it may have turned 1 year this month, but I even doubt that)... So even tho they acknowledge it is a defective issue, I have to pay to fix it. Guess they lost another customer to Samsung or LG

Damn, that sucks. Do you know how much you have to pay?

She is currently working on other solutions. I told her I would be willing to pay a small charge if they can switch it for an M8 at this point.

Ah, good luck then. I've never talked to Sprint's customer service but I've read of reviews online and they're apparently terrible, lol.

Talking to HTC not Sprint

Edit... Looks like HTC lost a long time customer.

None of the other phone manufacturers are going to fix your phone for free out of warranty. I know you're salty now, but know that switching does no good for your problem in particular.
Enjoy Samsuck. LG make decent phones but they lack in build quality.

HTC has made one lackluster device after another since the original EVO. The HTC One M7 wasn't exactly an amazing device (had a lot of short comings... specifically the camera) and the M8 is just a rehash of the M7... atleast with the S 5 you can install QI with a simple chip under the back cover.
