I accidentally broke the outer lens! the photos are fine now that I have removed the dust, but now the inner lens is prone to fingerprints, dust and other ... where can I find to buy a new external lens?

So how serious is that lens dust issue? Are those isolated cases or all s4z are affected?

Wanted to get one but decided to check before xda for know issues..

This is the third time that I send it in for service, it does not happen to everyone, but it happened to me! I must say that I'm using it without glass for a couple of days, and it goes well anyway!

To remove this plastic cover, what you need is hair dryer, small rubber suction, air blower (clean dust), and a thin knife / hard plastic sheet (to assist peel off the plastic cover)

1st, what you need to do is heat up the lens cover. (around 60-70degree, you will feel it quite hot to touch, this will soften the plastic cover, I think is pp material)
2nd, suck the cover up using rubber suction.
3rd, remove cover and cleaning, well done.
