    Default Loose camera lens

    Does anyone else have a camera lens that seems loose?

    Can anyone else verify that theirs does not seem a little loose? It doesn't seem like it is going to fall off but it definitely rattles around.

    I would take that one back in if I were you. No looseness with my lens whatsoever.

    Mine's fine but I hate that it protrudes. Looks like it can be knocked loose.

    The case I bought takes care of that protrusion. Doesn't add much bulk to the phone either.

    When I open the camera app it looks like I have some sort of sepia setting, when I push the camera lens in it goes to normal... have to take it in to be fixed.

    Seidio Innocase II w/ holster. If you're interested in a Seidio case in general, I posted coupon codes in the accessories section that could save you some cash.

    My first Inspire was flawless. I had to return it to Radio Shack since they wouldn't price match AT&T's $399 price. Went to AT&T and bought another. That one suffers from a "loose" lens cover. It doesn't impact camera performance, but it is annoying. After getting so annoying with restoring all my crap to the "new" Inspire I decided not to exchange it and go through it again. I'm going to dab a tiny bead of super glue around a couple spots so it doesn't make that clicking noise. No biggie, it's not going to fall off or anything.

    I'm not sure I would put super glue on it. It could seep in and mess with somethign inside or seep into the lense. Just my .02 .It's your phone.

    I'm talking super tiny dabs from the head of a fine pin. Just enough to stop a rattle, not a glob that could seep in. Looking at the cover, it would take a huge blob of glue to get up and under the cover.

    After disassembling enough smartphones, I'm pretty darn confident there is nothing right under that back cover that could be damaged.

    Besides, no guts, no glory.

    Fair enough. You're way more gutsy than I am plus I drink too much coffee and get too nervous with stuff like that to be able to put a pin head dab on it. Good luck.

    Only thing I would worry about with super glue, besides what was mentioned, is that it tends to cloud over clear pieces.

    When super glue is used on clear pieces...either plastic or glass, when it dries it tends to leave a cloudy, milky looking film on it. This is on of the main reason using super glue on a model is a big no no. You can damged the clear parts.

    I had to return my Inspire because of the same issue. It was driving me insane. It rattled while I was on the phone. It rattled in the car holder.

    The manager at the AT&T store wasn't going to swap it at first because he said it could have been dropped. It was still perfect.

    Here's a video I did of the rattle. So. Annoying. Glad they swapped it.

    I bought my first Inspire the day it was released - lens cover was not loose, and is still not loose. A coworker bought two - his were fine. I bought my brother one this morning, as a birthday present. He opened it and asked me if mine was built so shoddily. I checked it out, and saw he was talking about the Inspire having a loose lens cover. Took it back, AT&T replaced it with a new one. The new one didn't have a loose lens cover.

    I had the same issue with my Inspire from the day I bought it. I took it back two weeks after I bought it, and it was replaced with no questions asked.

    Yea. I've had mine for 41 days and is still in mint condition and they want to claim its physical damage.

    Its ridiculous!!!

    Anyone else have issues swapping it?

    I have an EVO I bought the first day they arrived. The camera lens just started rattling 6-4-11. It is the camera lens itself not the outer red ring and plastic viewpiece. Don't know what to do now.
