how can i protect my camera lense?
i have the body glove case, and i like it. but what it dosnt protect, is the camera lens. i feel whenever i set my phone down, it easily rests on the camera lens regardless of the case being on or off.
is there a case, or something i can do to further protect the glass lens on the camera? i would hate to have it scratched or cracked

I don't use a case at all... I have a Zagg full body skin on it except I ended up removing the screen protector after a couple of weeks and now the screen is just naked.... I slide the phone in and out of my back jean pocket all day long and rest it in the cup holder in my car (until they come out with a true car kit just for the EVO) I also rest the phone on it's back side all the time.... So far pushing two months with the phone I have yet to scratch the screen and the camera lens "COVER" (Your not actually on the lens at all and if you look hard enough the phone rest on the ring around the cover not flat flush on the glass/plastic cover over the lens) has not a single scratch on it either.... To scratch it you would have to either hit it perfectly which wouldn't matter if you had a bulky case on it or not or have loose change/keys/screws/bolts/razor blades or what ever floating around in your pocket with the phone which again no case is going to protect you from that either....
To each his own... Try not to worry about it... I babied the $HIT out of the phone at first now I treat it like my old LG flip phone it gets tossed around pretty good day in and day out... Nothing, not a single dent in it (yet) same with battery life.... The less and less I monitored the battery life the better it last....

Does the lense not have the same Gorilla Glass as the screen? I haven't read anytihng that says that it does but I assume that it does. Gorilla Glass is very scratch resistant. I sit my phone down all the time where it is resting on the lense and don't have a single scratch on it. Gorilla Glass is not break proof, but seems to be a lot more resilliant that normal glass, in all testing that I have seen. I wouldn't worry much about it, but most cases that I have seen do prevent the lense from touching while the phone is laying on its back.

I am also curious about the glass on the camera lense. If the glass is durable, I just may go naked and not use the skin that I have. I have the Rocketfish skin and it is great, but nothing beats the feel of having a naked phone. Has anyone scratched their camera lenses just putting it down on a hard surface like a table?

This case works great for me holds the screen protector in place also the silicone skin is raised on the back so its above the camera lens, the kickstand and touch screen. Only problem is finding a good holster to hold it cause its raised makes it a little bulky. But I am around alot of heavy machines all day and it takes a few bumps in the holster and one drop on the concrete. And nothing not even seen a scratch on the case. Plus only 10 bucks and saved my 200 dollar phone well worth it.

I have not found a good solution to actually protecting the lens cover itself other than being careful. You could cut a piece of screen protector and put it on there, but I'm not sure how much that'll affect your picture quality. The barely there case by case mate seems to be the best case to keep it from laying directly on a table without being bulky, and is what i use.

I guess I am a little paranoid about my phone. I want to keep it in good shape. The problem is, the phone is best when it is naked. If there was a way that I could keep it like that without damaging the device, I would. I just want to know if the camera lens will scratch just from putting it on a table all day long?

try putting a Wrapsol skin on the front and back' it wont cover the camera, but its 1000 times nicer than ZAGG, and its really protective and covers about 99% of your phone
I hate cases too, and find that this does a nice job, and the phone is as close to naked as possible; great customer service, lifetime replacement, and more..hard to beat!

PROTECT YOUR CAMERA LENS FROM CRACKS........
I purchased the Seidio HEV4 carrying case and then went to Home Depot and purchased a black rubber #10 "O" ring in the plumbing department. The "O" rings come in a pack of ten for $2.39. I took superglue and glued the "O" ring to the back of my phone. The #10 size "O" ring fits perfectly around the camera lens. Also the Seidio HEV4 case is the only case I have found that will then fit perfectly around the "O" ring. The "O" ring barely sticks out beyond the camera lens and Seidio HEV4 case so now when I lay my phone down, the "O" ring keeps the camera lens from touching. With the "O" ring being made of black rubber, it looks like part of the case. I have had several people tell me that it looks like it came from HTC. Looks GREAT & works GREAT!
