I somehow managed to crack the cover on my Note 3's camera. As a result, I get annoying glares in my images. Is it okay to remove this cover completely? Also, are there any replacements out there?

You can remove it but you run the risk of easily breaking the lens itself or getting it dirty which would be much worse than some glare. Why not fine the part to replace it.

You could replace it yourself but the phone needs to get opened (screws removed). The OEM cost around $6 on E-bay. A warranty doesn't cover the cracked glass. I was looking for this matter myself. But I just have a scratch in the cover. Someone said the glass could get shattered/cracked itself because of Samsung design flaw .
