    Are you guys using a case that doesn't allow camera to touch the table you lay it on
    I'm using the Spigen Neo Hybrid With Metallic Buttons and it keeps the camera off of surfaces. I think it was a mistake for Samsung to have the camera protruding the way it does.

    My S5 is less than a week old. Thank goodness the camera lens is still whole. I was one who also pulled off the little plastic protector when I got home, but after reading everyone's posts....I think I will buy a regular screen protector and cut it to size with the hole left open in the center for the lens. Maybe that will help prevent any damage??

    Thoughts?

    I've had a similar issue. Picked up my phone about 3 days after I got it and noticed the camera lens was all cracked up. I have never dropped it and it's been in an Otterbox the whole time... was very disappointed. Luckily it isn't too terrible and doesn't effect my picture quality so it's not worth the insurance claim.

    Residual stress made the fracture on the lens probably.

    Otterbox seems to be the common issue

    Is it ok to keep using the camera if that outer screen is shattered? Barring any other physical damage from dropping of course. Does that outer covering affect the camera's function in any way? My pictures look fine, but I'm not sure if i'm damaging the lens by not having that protective glass.

    ok, i got it and installed it.

    I will take some pics later.

    The piece is glass, but it has the adhesive on it. I believe it should be enough to keep water out, but i do not want to test it.

    It is actually a piece of glass, with black on it.

    The fit is perfect on it though.

    I have one i am going to test to see how well it holds up

    soooo, after all of this.

    My camera will not take pics that are focused.
    So, sprint is replacing it with a new phone.

    I guess this is a known issue as well.

    BTW, this sprint store i went to is sending out the phones to be repaired with broken lenses, as long as the phone itself does not look damaged. They know it is an issue

    did your camera take focused pics before you installed the new glass? i dont see why new glass would mess with the focus, is it the same glass as original?
    im not taking my phone for a replacement with the lens cracked thell say i dropped it
    ill put the ebay glass on then if it doesnt focus right ill send it in under warranty for replacement

    I have an extra glass of some one wants. But the reason for non focus is a camera defect, not the glass

    It looks like it's trying to focus.. but since the glass is shattered it's takes cloudy pictures.

    I couldn't agree more love spigen cases. I have the tough armor and the Neo Hybriod as well. Both are good for durability just difference in size.

    Mine is starting to get scratches on the glass over the heart rate sensor, and I have a sview wireless case that recesses it pretty well

    I have had my Galaxy s5 for less than two months and out of no where I picked up my phone and the lens was shattered. No matter what phone I have I always keep it protected with a case and a screen protector; I work with cell phones I know how important it is to keep your phone protected. I have never broke a phone and had to do an insurance claim, now all of a sudden I have to pay $175 to replace my phone because this tiny piece of glass broke. Now that I have read this post I am sure that it is an issue with the phone, not the owners. It is good to know that Samsung will replace it for about $100 less than doing an insurance claim, however I am angry that I have to pay a dime. I am pro Samsung, I love their products and I have had many of their phones, but I an highly upset with the s5 and this issue.
