    Sure, welcome to Modmyi We are all very happy to help people with difficulties with hardware problems and more.
    Your images are taken at reflective glass. Can you use it on another object please? Something matted would be nice, reflective glass changes flash at different angles (your angle changes a substantial amount between each shooting).

    Sometimes the flash can change depending on the ambient lighting. The iPhone 4 has a light meter in the sensor (which is based on the center of the image).For example, if you take a picture of something black in the centre of your image, the camera will try to balance it with white, which is the flash. Because of your two different images, I think that you may have taken a picture of a super black television stand, and then the same one on a slightly less black area of the television stand (or less shadow from you moving to a different position). The glass definitely contributes to the camera light metering, so if you could take another set of pictures of something less reflective, I could evaluate it more better. Thanks

    It's normal.

    If you don't want to use the flash, you can turn it off.

    It just depends on how dark it is in the room/place.

    This picture I took shows everything balanced in a pitch black room.

    The lenses are clear enough, because the images aren't distorted or blurred.

    It's not normal. Notice the significant difference in each photograph.

    We don't know if Ali Omran is a man :P, and the iPhone 4's flash is probably the problem.

    i had alot of scratchs on my oem ip4 lense before. when i took pictures without flash, everything was perfect. but when i used the flash, i would got similar white haze as the OP. i replaced the backing with a new one and the problem was gone. i believe the scratches on the lense caused the white haze when the flash was used.

    Some questions:

    1) Are you using the original back cover that you have initially purchased your iPhone with?

    2) Have ever removed the back cover or taken apart your iPhone 4?

    3) Is your camera lens scratched?

    In most cases if you replaced your back cover, there is a film on the camera lens it self and on the back of the cover. Typically it would create a blur like that. If its your original back thats giving the problem then its most evidently due to wear.

    if the back cover was changed, did it come with a diffuser. that would cause the problem.

    It is likely your camera has some form of hardware problem. Go to your local Apple Store and ask the employees if they can help diagnose this difficulty.
