why was it a pain? the cutout hole is perfect size and doesn't get in the way of the quality of the photos......

i remember i took a picture of something with the cover on, and then without it, and it was exactly the same...no loss in quality

It was causing some users interference with the camera. That was the issue I had at least.

I am on my third gs5, first 2 didn't even have a protector over the camera lens and the 3rd one does

I'm going to leave it on since there's a nice cutout for the camera optic, so it doesn't interfere with photos
