    Problem resolved. It was a sticker covering the lens that was seemingly a part of the lens and difficult to remove.

    The peeling is coming from a plastic that is covering the lens which you can actually take off.

    I'm fairly sure it's a part of the phone. It won't peel off and look at the stock images of other S5s. It should have the charcoal grey surrounding it.

    I'd like to add that my phone's lens looks even worse in person...

    Yeah, that's a protective coating. Pull it off. Your phone will look brand new. It's pretty tricky to remove, but it will come off.

    I finally got it off. That thing was stuck on good. Thanks guys. It still has a few scratches which is a bit upsetting considering it was brand new but I can definitely live with this especially since my case will cover all the scratches.
