Does the Xenon flash on the Nokia Lumia 928 actually make pictures Worse?

GottabeMobile has tested the camera in the Nokia Lumia 928 and have come away disappointed.

The camera preserves its great performance in low light, as long as the Xenon flash is not used.

When used however people come away with an orange cast, with the reviewer saying:

I do not appreciate having skin tone that looked like I sat through a bad spray tan

Interestingly the issue is not inherent to the Xenon flash, as pictures taken by the Nokia 808 Pureview did not exhibit any of the issues.

See those pictures and also a comparison with the HTC One after the break.
