Hey guys. After a while of using my Nexus 5, I noticed that when I take pictures there is this bubble on the screen that also gets on the pictures. I ruled out software due to any camera app that I try had the same bubble so I was just wandering if any of you guys know how to fix this?

What can we suggest?? You yourself have ruled out the possibility of a software bug.. So, it's obviously hardware related. You could try blowing air near the camera circle or near the headphone jack...

If you have experience in opening up a device, you could try cleaning it yourself or send it in and let google/LG take care of it...

Seems like I'll try opening it myself. I've already had 2 RMAs don't really want to have to do a third one.
