    Has anybody tried this yet with their S4? I've seen tutorials with S3 & assume it's the same way, but haven't found definite confirmation. Afraid to try until so. But part only seems to be $3 or $4 on ebay. Don't think my phone is under warranty because I also bought it on ebay.

    Not sure if I have a crack or a speck of dirt in my lens but I am getting this on all of my photos & videos now:



    Any thoughts??

    Looks like a small chip of glass broke off, either that or dust/lint or whatever.

    I have the same problem. Actually, my fiance has an S4 and she also has the same problem too. I think it is dirt/lint/etc on the lense. It shows up as just a tiny black speck on the photos. Mine has actually moved a bit over time and the spot shows up in a different spot now than when I first noticed it--which furthers my thinking that it is dirt versus a camera malfunction. Oddly enough, it doesn't show up on my panoramic pictures.

    I also have noticed this on a few user posted photos on this board. Perhaps, some people haven't even noticed it yet. I think it took me awhile to notice because depending on the photo (dark background) you might not really see it. I'm guessing the lens enclosure is not exactly air tight. I have thought about trying to blow it out with compressed air, but have yet to try this.

    Yeah, I went back through my gallery & noticed it's been happening for a couple weeks but it's only noticeable on certain pics. So far I've tried a vacuum to it with no luck.
