    So I made the mistake of trying to clean the inside of my V10's camera lens with a microfibre cloth, some eyeglass cleaner and a cotton swab.

    Basically I'm not gonna do that again and stick with compressed air.

    Do any of you guys know which sellers on Amazon are the most trustworthy with their replacement lens parts? I've perused around already and seen some, most with little reviews. I'd go with another source but I'd prefer to get it ASAP via 2-day shipping before dust somehow gets on the actual camera module's lens and causes the dreaded "black object" effect on photos.

    Got a replacement in black from this seller, after getting two parts from Dogxiong, both parts having scratched lenses and the plastic frame already broken:

    It works and gets the job well done, though it's not OEM. Least it comes with tools for those who already don't have tools to disassemble phones. Either way, I'd advise to have a can of compressed air at the ready as these parts sometimes have particles in the inner cutout of the camera.

    Replacing it was easy as the part can be easily popped off from the back panel frame. Just take care not to damage the ribbon cables for the rear button assembly and fingerprint scanner as well as the metal back plate.

    So did a camera test indoors and apparently the glass lenses non-oem parts use are subject to glare, the same issue my HTC One M8 had when I removed the faulty lens coating the camera had.

    Have yet to get back with how it performs outdoors though I have yet to take pictures or video where glare becomes a bit issue.

    Yep!! that was going to be my first question, but I wasn't sure how to phrase it.

    The OEM window has AR (anti-reflective) coating on it. The same AR coating Breitling uses on their watch crystals and many eye-glasses have the same kind of treatment. Rifle scopes, binoculars, higher-end flashlights... and of course SLR camera lenses have it too.

    On my OEM lens, I very faintly scratched the AR coating. I don't think it affects the picture any. But I think I will just leave it as-is for now.

    Ah okay. My slight problem now is that I have no way of seeing if there's a way to apply an anti reflective film over the non-oem lens or finding a legitimate seller who sells actual camera lens kits straight from LG.
