Default What's the camera lens made of?

Does anyone know if the lens is gorilla glass 3 like the display? With the camera sticking out like it does I'm surprised they don't use sapphire crystal.

sapphire crystal, lmfao They don't need that crap. Its been argued that its not much better than Gorilla glass anyway, in many ways.. But it is more expensive !

The lens in the back in made of glass, the same stuff your windshield is made of.

Not gorilla

Wouldn't it be funny though, imagine you getting it for you significant other. Honey, I bought you the galaxy made with sapphire. Oh, so sweeeet. JK, it's a phone.

no, not gorilla. Get from the post that discuss the broken camera lens that the camera lens is made of normal glass and easy to be broken. It's never a secret that S5 camera design is a flaw. The camera lens even can self crack.

Gorilla Glass would work fine, wouldn't it? I doubt Samsung would use Sapphire Crystal for the camera. If they did, it'd be noted a lot more.
