    The camera lens didn't break. Stop trying to tell everyone these phones are defective.

    lol, for real. I dropped mine on my tile floor and it landed on the back and not a scratch or cracked lens. People are just trying to find a way to point a finger at someone other than themselves.

    Has anyone watched the one drop test video on YouTube? The guy drops the phone like 5 or 6 times before the lens cracks and the final drops were from higher than 6 feet.

    Related question, did everyone remove the plastic protector on their camera lens? Mine's still on but didn't even know it was there till I read it somewhere.

    I left mine on, just in case it helps. I do not think the glass will crack, but if a little piece of plastic might help and doesn't interfere with taking photos then why not leave it.

    Just because yours didn't break this one time doesn't mean others were as lucky. Drops are a chance thing. Depends on how far, how hard (normal drop or you were moving your arm so gave it momentum), and angel that it falls.

    I'm of the impression the OP may be referring to the hysteria posted by those who dont have actual experiences but are part of the doom and gloom. Note: I reserve the right to be wrong in my assertions.

    I tripped and dropped a brand new V20 yesterday on a concrete street.
    The dropped height was only about 2 inch or so, because in that split second I was ready to give up one part of my body to save that precious phone. Unfortunately, my instinct saved my arm just before I hit the street. Because I dropped the phone at such a low height with not so much impact, I thought my phone was going to be okay (maybe expected some scratches), but God was merciless and cracked every corner of the lcd glass. I still hope this is dream.
    I sent the device back to LG for a "paid" repair..

    I am referring to the people going around and causing a hysteria who don't actually have the phone. I'm sure if it's dropped enough it can crack the lens cover. Dont come into the forms and claiming a defective device and a single drop will spell doom for your lg v20. Especially since it's an absolutely amazing device. That's why I made that remark good sir.

    One of mine fell off the nightstand last evening and hit the lamp base on the way to the floor. I panicked. Not even a scuff...anywhere.

    That sucks. That is why I put a higher end case and tempered glass protector on every phone (not saying you did not). There is still no guarantee but anything helps

    I personally have never used any cases or screen films on my phone. I have always enjoyed naked phones for full beauty, but this time I learned my lesson.. As soon as I get my phone back this time, I'm going to keep it in a fortress or something.

    Right, it's just the lens cover. And a few have cracked for no apparent reason.

    Of course screens crack and cars dent. There's a growing sentiment in some circles, however, that the V20's camera lens takes little more than staring at it to shatter. ...can't say I subscribe to that and so far I've not had any reason to.

    On a related note they did put a film on the lens. I believe it was for protection and will, therefore, leave it in place. If some enterprising vendor wants to make a tempered glass protector for the V20's camera lens I'd be lying if I didn't admit I'd be nearly first in line.

    Phone drops are pretty fickle. If it hits in the wrong place things shatter otherwise virtually nothing. I've been lucky in that I've never broken any phone I've owned. I also have a reflex to stop the fall with my foot. I've saved several items from destruction that way. However, it also cost me when I dropped a bit and heavy model train transformer and broke a few toes. That was one I should have let go.
