Hi all..

I recently purchased a used Galaxy SIV from someone and once I got home and took a snap with the phone, I noticed a "blurred speck" on all pictures on the same location.

I believe a speck of dust might have somehow gotten onto the lens and was wondering if anyone knows of a manual online on how to clean it.

I've tried using compressed air and wiping the lens with a lens cloth but neither resolved it.

I found a video online for cleaning the lens for the S3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuqQD3AKnds but cant seem to find something for the S4.

Any suggestions?

Make sure the plastic film is not still on it. I know there is a small circle of film the same size as the lens

Dang, I read this and then removed mine! Ha! But there is a hole in the plastic I removed so I guess it really wasn't causing a problem.
