I actually really enjoy the camera on this device, but it's giving me some issues I didn't really notice on my s3 probably because I never took pictures at night.

For some reason the glass on the s3 seemed to have an oleophobic coating that resisted fingerprint smudges, but this device doesn't. It leaves oil smudges that create light streaks in night photos. I didn't take a good comparison photo, but I will tonight if anyone doesn't understand what I mean. Once I wipe off the oil smudge then the pictures come out great.

Just wondering if anyone knows of a coating I can apply that is safe for camera glass or a screen protector with an oleophobic property that fits over the camera without distorting the photo.

Why don't you just wipe the lens clean before you use the camera?

Well of course I can do that, but it's annoying to always have to do that, especially when I want a quick picture.

Just looking for more of a innate solution, I'm going to try to cut a round circle off a fingerprint resistant screen protector and see if it distorts the picture.
