Ive made some pics and videos and my camera has black spots. I cleaned the window and it still has the spots (look thr attachment)

When i take a picture zoomed the black spots move to its side (like you zoom into a pic and the edges dissapear off the screen because the pic is getting bigger than your screen)

Could this be a dirty camera or do I need a camera replacement for this?
If it is dirty, is there a way how I can open the window from the camera to clean it?

Question, if you were to smack your phone against your hand hard multiple times do the black spots move from where they were? My first thought would be dirt in the lens. How it got there no idea...or how to get it out...

If the spot doesn't get bigger when you zoom in over it, I think its not due lens but related to the sensor.

I don't want to break my phone, I smacked it hard against my hand but they don't move.
I can not take apart my phone, 1 screw is extremely tight and I don't want to ruin the screw by trying over and over.

Any idea?

Ps when zooming the spots get bigger, but move out of the screen

So it's dust.

Changing the camera module looks the best option if you still have warranty.

I have a similar problem. I have a couple of dark spots. I have tried taking the cover off the lens and blowing really hard but can't get them to go no matter what. I am really annoyed. The same thing also happened on my S3. I really don't want to claim warranty because I will most probably end up with Knox. There's no way I am risking it being upgraded to Knox firmware.

This. I had this on my s2, I guess that the camera is damaged, the connections to the motherboard. try to open it and clean the connections of the cam to the motherboard. if this won't help, then you would need a camera replacement.
take a look at this:

I tried this with a cleaning towel and the black spots are still there. I think there is something with my camera.
