Looking for a case that offers a window or door to cover the camera lens- even with thick cases, my camera lenses on my phones tend to get destroyed (why aren't these made of gorilla glass?). Any suggestions? Thanks

I've noticed the same problem. In quite a few drop test videos I've watched, the camera lens cracked before the screen. I have the Urban Armor Gear and it provides some protection by adding a small lip around the camera. At least it won't get scratched when I use it on a flat surface. But I haven't come across any cases that offer additional protection for the camera.

What I can tell you is that the replacement lens is pretty cheap. I think around $10. It seems like something an average user can replace themselves.
