    Default Something is on my camera lens

    I noticed today that every time I opened the camera app, there was a spot on the screen. I cleaned the lens several times and nothing helped. Looking closer, there is definitely something on the camera lens inside the glass. Almost looks like an extremely small drop of water. It's been there all day now. I've taken the back cover and battery out and tried to blow it out, but with no luck. Is there anything I can do?

    Take it apart and clean it. It's really easy to do. I cracked my glass and had to replace it

    The more I look at it, I think what m seeing is the reflection of the lens on the glass. It moves whenever I move my phone. If that is the case, I don't see anything on my lens. But there is definitely a noticeable smudge on my screen every time I open the camera.

    How do you take it apart?

    Maybe you can exchange it? If you take it apart and can't put it back you'll be in trouble. I'm sure taking it apart will void your warranty.

    My fear is having my brand new note replaced with a refurbished one. I bought it from Amazon for Verizon network

    Send it back to Amazon. Contact Customer Service about it.

    I would suggest sending it back to Amazon as well.

    I emailed Amazon, and they said since it has been longer than 30 days, it is now a matter for Verizon, and I have to contact them.

    Would you rather have a new one that has a smudge on the camera or a refurb with no smudge? Either that, or as I said take it apart. It really is not that hard.
