    Just upgraded from my S3 on Friday and wow the Note 4 is an amazing device. However, when I went to go use the rear facing camera I noticed a dark spot on the left side of all my images (It rotated when I attached the image so now it is on the bottom). I am guessing I am going to have to go back to Verizon for a new one but figured id check to see if there is some sort of solution for the problem.

    That kinda looks like an air bubble... do you have any kind of protective plastic on the lens? The one that the phone ships with does NOT cover the lens, it actually goes around it, but there might be something on there. It' looks too 'organic' to be a sensor defect, so it looks more like a defect on the glass or lens.

    Nope nothing is covering the lens. It appears on the camera app and snapchat so it must be a hardware issue.

    Then just get it replaced. I still doubt it's the sensor and more a smudge or defect in the lens or glass, but either way, it's a defect. Don't sweat it and swap it .

    I can't see the picture on this post, but I just got a Note 4 Edge a few days ago and have a black spot on images from my rear facing camera as well. Did you have any issues getting your phone replaced? I'd like to get mine replaced as well and wanted to know if there was any problems getting it replaced before I take it back to Best Buy.
