    Hey, I've recently bought a S6 and it's only been three days after purchase. Everything was working great, but today I noticed that the rear camera has a black spot on the right side in the middle. I haven't dropped my phone or made any harm to it, I keep my it in a case and my rear camera isn't scratched or anything.. I've tried resetting the phone but it didn't help. Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

    Did you peel the plastic cover off the lens?

    The lens isn't damaged nor scratched.. And if I zoom in, the spot disappears to the right side

    If you put a white background for your home screen do you see it?
    If not, It looks to me like something got on the lens or lens cover on the inside. I would exchange it if that's the case.

    I've had the exact same problem recently. Today this morning, I accidentaly dropped my phone on the floor and it fixed the issue. The phone's pretty tough, so no scratches were obtained during this accident. Try at your own risk

    This happened to my 7 Day Old Note 5 too. I followed the "drop" solution and luckily, it worked for me. Just make sure your phone has a protective case to avoid scratches.

    Hey, thanks for the question and all the answers. I did have the same problem with the spot on the rear camera of my S6. I did not drop the phone. I tried a softer method. I have my phone in a soft plasic cover so i just hit the underside of the phone several times and carefully on a table. The problem is solved. Thanks to all of you!

    I had the same thing happen to me. I called Samsung and had to send the phone back. They repaired it and sent it back to me.

    I thought hitting the phone was a Prank. However, I had the same black spot on my galaxy s7 camera and decided to open the camera app while gently tapping my phone on my desk at work. I did have an otterbox case on to protect the camera from scratches. IT WORKED! Thanks guys.

    This thread is very helpful, I just had the same problem with my Xperia X Performance, I was certain that's it's not a scratch but a dust particle. So I covered it with some plastic and knocked hard at it, and it worked, the dust is gone now! Thanks

    Thank you, this forum is amazing. I read your answers and my first thought was that I must have read that wrong, but reread the answers and figured what the he$$ couldn't hurt. I tapped the phone once and the dot moved, tapped it again and it disappeared! Thanks every one!
