Has anyone blacked out the red part of the phone around the camera lens? If so, how?

    I want to do that because I don't like the red poking through. I'm sure that others do. Just thought I'd ask if anyone blacked theirs out, though. Ideas are appreciated. That is all.

    Get the optional Macro lens. The metal ring it uses should cover the red.

    Sharpie? I've used one to touch up a black phone that got nicked up. It'd probably work for that too.

    I have a sharpie paint pen, but haven't done it since I'm likely exchanging the phone.

    I just discovered that there is an 'industrial' sharpie version. I originally thought it was just a marketing gimmick, but it is actually a completely different product. I scribbled on a shiny piece of metal to test it out. The regular sharpie left a thin, purple-ish covering that was relatively easy to wipe off. The industrial sharpie went on as solid black, and I absolutely couldn't rub it off. Very impressive stuff.
