    Unfortunately (after only 2 days of use) I pulled my Note 4 out of my pocket to reveal shattered camera glass. I'm not certain how it happened, especially since I treated the thing like a newborn baby.

    Now I am on the hunt for the lens cover replacement for this bad boy. Any ideas where to find it? I found the Note 3 and S5 replacements on ebay, but no luck for the Note 4. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    I haven't seen any Have you tried going to the store? You might be able to get a warranty exchange (not likely, but can't hurt to try)

    I have insurance via AT&T, but that will cost me $200 to replace the device.

    . Sorry to hear that. Did you have a case on it?

    Not if it goes through warranty. Again, it's a long shot, but it can't hurt to ask.

    I'll look into the warranty. Also, no case on it at the time. I was waiting on the case to be delivered.

    yeah, the case helps a lot. A coworker smashed his 2-hour-new iPhone 6's camera lens in the same way. A case makes it so that the lens never touches the surface.

    With the raised camera lens I think this is going to happen a lot. I had an otterbox commuter on my note 3 so it wasn't an issue. I purchased a commuter for my note and didn't like it. I was thinking about trying to put something that was a little thicker right above the lens. Like a piece of adhesive foam or something to keep the lens of the surface

    For now though with the protection of a tempered glass protector it's "*** up, face down....."

    Any one find the camera glass? Took a month for me to break the camera glass.. Now on the hunt for glass! And a very thin case or solution. This phone handles so well with out a case, pitty we have to wrap it up. Might be on the look out for a glass protector for the camera only. Not sure if that exists... I have the breakable shield on the screen. Please keep this thread going until answered!

    Hi,
    I just had the same thing happen to my note4. i dropped mine though, so it's really my fault. Does anyone know if the S5 lens cover is the same size and would maybe work??
    Otherwise if i find one i'll let you all know.

    After comparing my note 4 to an s5 in a store I'm sure the s 5 glass is too small. However I took my phone into a Samsung service Centre here in Vancouver and they were able to replace the glass for me on the spot for free. Result!

    It looks like the only available part is the complete middle housing. I may have to order one soon...

    Since I can't post links yet, search "Note 4 Middle Housing" on ebay.
