    Stupid question, just curious.

    Can direct sunlight damage the sensor on a cellphone camera, or not?

    not generally, thats why it is covered until the camera app is used

    if you leave the camera on, and let it stare into the sunlight for periods of time, the UV rays may begin impact the quality.

    and its not a stupid question, its actually a very good question


    im partially right here is a direct link to pretty much the same question with pretty much the same answer but its not.


    hope this helps
