    I was at the apple store today comparing my camera to the ipt4 to see the difference. Then for the lulz i turned around and went to an iphone 4 on display and compared the camera. Now this is extremely weird. It appeared as though my iphone's camera was whiter and less accurate in colour than the display model. I called over an apple sales guy who i actually know because he sold me my mac and we kinda know eachother now, took out his iphone 4 and we compared the three. All three models were on the highest brightness, all on firmware 4.0.2, all 32gb. Mine and the apple rep's were both off in colour, whiter than they should be and the one on display had a more accurate colour display.. like the wooden desk appeared yellowish orange and on ours it appeared whited out. He said it was really weird and joked that it had some 'advanced' camera. Now i'm not sure why this is but it's gotten on my nerves. Any experiences with such a thing?

    It's neat how people can be wrong with only one word.

    He's not paranoid, he just said him and the rep's phones were off.
    Other people are sorta noticing this, too.

    I've noticed this and so did some of my friends. My camera takes great pictures but not as good as the store demo. We came to the conclusion that the pictures were edited or taken with a higher resolution camera and loaded on to the display demo. The demo needs to have the best display so you will be impressed.

    I think this as well. But it definitely isn't just display models because I tried the two beside the better camera one and they were like mine. I think apple did a switch of cameras and to make up for older cameras, they added HDR in 4.1.
