Before I head into a long old rant about this, doesn’t sun refract like this when hitting any clear surface? For example a car window with the sun directly in front will cause a flare will it not? I use my iPhone 4s exclusively for taking all the pictures at EssentialMac and guess what, if the sun is shining in the wrong / right place you get lense flare. More often than not a few degrees of movement remove’s the flare. Lense flare is cool anyways, look at the Transformers movies 😉
Scratch tests, drop tests, hammer tests, running the iPhone 5 over with a car, it just amazes me the lengths that the internets will go to just to see how “easy” it is to scratch or damage the new iPhone. I’m all for comparative tests but why do we never see a batch of real-world tests? Why isn’t anyone recording an afternoon of pulling their new iPhone in and out of their pockets with some keys in there? Or recording that accidental moment when you put your iPhone into a pocket full of loose change. How about a test of getting into your car and the phone is in your ass cheek pocket?
