    I read some of the reviews and apparently it was half and half. Some loved it and some said it cracked the phone trying to get it to fit the case. If it cracked...you're pressing too hard on something that obviously isn't fitting lol

    Really?? Cracking the back glass or cracked the camera lens cover after trying to squeeze the phone into a case after putting on that lens cover??

    Like B. Diddy says that sounds like it just makes an offensively looking huge bulge even more offensive... but I guess if used with a case that usually gives you a little recess at the lens opening... it would just make it flush?? But if a bit of pressure trying to wedge that setup in a case makes it crack, then I'm not surprised then to read those articles of spontaneous camera cover cracks.

    Lol, Samsung makes a lens cover to reduce the reports of lens covers cracking... and the lens covers... actually cause more cracks.

    Boy, another reason I am glad to hear the Note 20+ is not going have the "Ultra" cameras.

    So a $2 DBrand skin for the Camera cover is not enough as good as the $20 cover from Samsung??

    Also, I updated elsewhere, the camera cover cracking post on the Samsung Community sight has gone from 12 pages at beginning of month to 24 pages with people still reporting spontaneous screen cracking.

    Do you mean camera? Camera skins are nothing new. Maybe new for an OEM to market one but I can see how because of the size and protrusion how it might be a good idea, especially those with a light case.

    Isn't that more than a skin, though? Looks like an actual plate.

    It's still a skin but to your point it does look thicker based in the picture.

    Toastmade products makes rigid ones in a wood veneer that are thicker than Dbrand. It's a personal preference, but not something I'm interested in.

    As long as it's raised it should protect from landing on its back unless the camera takes a direct hit from a protruding object.

    My thought whenever I see this is think of how much dust will get into those holes. I believe you'd be taking that off daily to clean the lens exactly how you have to do it now. The camera lens are actually covered so it's easily wiped clean.

    I wouldn't buy anything covering camera lens. Just go with skin camera.

    I think Samsung may be trying to cover up the cracked glass with this plate. Out of sight....

    The camera bump is truly hideous and very much a weak point in the phone structure. For such an expensive phone this is pretty shoddy QC.

    thats not a bad idea, and its not a skin, its firmer. is this Samsungs fix for the "mysterious cam glass cracking" but like someone said, this will also cause dirt build up within the circle cutouts. so pros and cons for everything

    It depends on what you are referring to as a QC issue. The camera bump protruding is not a QC issue. That a design issue and it's not the first time that an OEM has made a protruding lens. Granted, this is a large one, but if people are dropping it and breaking it there isn't much to be said except don't drop it or protect it.

    If we are referring to a design flaw in which the glass is breaking spontaneously on it's own that would certainly be a QC issue.

    I'm still not convinced that all of these are breaking on their own. It is quite possible that if someone doesn't remember dropping it that something pressed up against the glass and cracked it.
