Yes, the issue is there. Yes, it is normal on all the optical lens.

 

It is also YES at Apple is quite bit worse in this regard. The flare is much intense than any others. 

 

It is not quite yet a deal breaker, but I'm happy that I made a right decision to buy it from apple website with 2 weeks return window.

 

 

 

All photos use default setting, no PS

 

First here is iPhone 11 128gb.

I'm not seeing the issue here. Seems that all of the above have some form of lens flare with the Samsungs being yellow and the iPhones bluish. The iPhone 11 image is still demonstrably better than the 6s.

When it is noticeable to a point, it is an issue. However not everyone will get annoyed by that, if not photo geek.

Pretty sure the biggest rule of photography has always been make sure the light source is behind you.  Taking a photo of a light bulb is going to show glare.  

 

Night photos where you're taking photos with a light source in front is also tricky given night modes are still very young in their maturity.  I'm sure they'll get better.  But just because we have new camera technology doesn't make the reality of aiming your lens at a light any different than when we were shooting on film.

Odd... I've been using an iPhone X camera for all kinds of situations over the last 2 years and haven't noticed particularly bad flare. I don't suppose you've got a smudged lens or dust inside the elements? Or maybe I just haven't been too worried about a bit of flare...?
