    The original lenscover easily scratches. Does a new cover permanently solve this problem?

    A new Lens cover, if you get a glass one probably would if it was good enough quality. Not so cheap though.

    I just removed my plastic lens cover and its been great ever since.

    ... and HTC took over this idea ;)
    The HTC Sensation hasn't a lens cover in its back cover.

    is it so bad with the plastic lens cover ?
    i know some guy made a video about it but i didn't knew it is so bad

    i am thinking of removing the plastic cover and putting a protection transparent folio on the original lens (good idea or bad ?)

    If anyone is not so sure if its a good or bad idea to remove the lens, then i suggest they do what i did.

    1.Take a photo of something with the back cover (complete with lens cover) attached to the phone.
    2.Now remove the back cover & take the exact same photo.
    3.Look at both photos on your PC and you will be amazed how better the second one looks.

    The window over the lens that is built into the rear cover gets scratched very easily. It shoul really have some kind of built in sliding cover.

    Does it not greatly increased the risk of scratching the camera lense?

    i have took mine right now and what a huge difference
    i just wanted to put something on the lens but i have nothing ... :(
    dust would be a problem here since it is a hole

    Like i said before, i have taken mine off about 6 months ago, so far ive not had any problems with dust or damage with it being an open whole, i have it in my pocket a lot and i also work in a dusty workshop and its been fine.

    Might give this ago, just to check the difference.

    I'm too much of a coward to do this.

    I've kept my phone in pristine condition with my silicon case and screen protectors and general good care. However, rather annoyingly, my camera lens has clouded through many micro-scratches and blurs my shots. However, I must use my camera for a dedicated shot once every 4-6 weeks? And then I pop off my back cover. Not practical but I feel a bit more re-assured that the lens is covered. Albeit by a piece of easily scratched plastic.
