    Default Back Camera Lense broken Galaxy S5

    Don't know how this has happened, I haven't dropped the phone but I noticed today the back camera lense has shattered, its still clear for now when taking a picture but I would like it replaced. My question is has this happened to anyone else phone? And any advice on how best to get this fixed..... do I contact Samsung, phone provider, try taking it to a shop? Any help appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    How long have you had it? I've heard a few stories here and there about the lens shattering, it's just regular glass.

    Well hopefully you got the insurance with it and they will just swap it out

    Seems to be happening to quite a few people. Do you use a case, especially an otterbox case by any chance?

    It's not insured unfortunately, tried asking in a Samsung shop they said because of the watertight feature it would cost 160 to replace . Asked in phones for you and they can send it off for me but I won't get a price until they see it.
