    Its definitely a problem getting in there. Its deeply recessed.

    I use a lens cleaning cloth, (the kind you get free with some screen devices, or at your eye doctor, or any scrap of microfiber). Fold a triangle so you have a sharp corner and work it in there and twist.

    It makes a big difference when using face chat.

    Stay away from Q-Tips and tissues.

    I doubt a qtip would scratch the lens unless that qtip has something on it ie. sand, dirt, etc. You just have to be carefully. I like to vacuum my phone sometimes, to get all the dirt and grime I get in it from work. Then I'll wipe it down.

    They can, but the real problem is they will wedge tiny thread into cracks that you can't reach.

    Air won't remove oils. Compressed air comes out extremely cold, and can crack glass.

    There is a reason microfiber is the recommend way to clean lenses and screens.

    I stated to remove dust I haven't had an issue with oils getting in there and the compressed air has not cracked my lense yet but good point I will monitor that but for now it works fine for me

    Remember, it doesn't matter if q-tips or cloth scratches, it's the dust that's already on there that will scratch the lens when you wipe it
