broadcast cameras and now prosumer cameras have whats called ATW or Auto Tracing White.. this "looks" for changes in degrees Kelvin and makes adjustments.

any professional camera dude or dudette uses this in rare and extreme cases. PROs to this is you get pretty decent color reproduction however there may be a case or two when the right conditions fool the sensor and DSP and you produce video that's like the video attached here.

so while its not pleasing to the eye, its not really a bug. I suspect HTC CAN implement finer control over the DSP that controls the color mapping in these sensors.

agreed, its a good idea to submit this ticket to HTC. Great job the the user who posted. It would be also great if you can tell HTC the exact lightning conditions (what light sourced you used, wattage, incandescent, florescent, etc..)
FYI -- I had actually set the white balance to fluorescent, per my use of a CFL lighting, so it wasn't set to auto white balance.
