Look white knights,
I wonít even get into how many contradictory comments the op has made in this thread, or get into whether heís a photographer or an engineer, or if by post 9 heís directly challenging members about his expertise.
I never once mentioned what it is i do for a living to gain credibility, another member brought that up. you either believe me or you donít with what i am about to tell you.
My post history is available on the many devices Iíve owned on xda and you can go back and see if iím a forum troll who starts arguments or if i help people out. You only need to look in the z1 section to see how much time i took out to write up an extensive guide trying to help people complaining about the camera on that device.
I will say this and never enter this thread againÖ
Here are FACTS, take it or leave it.
The camera on this phone produces moire artifacts, fringing in high contrast areas, and it clips color channels.
HTC didnít say, ď lets put a piece of glass/plastic in front of our camera lens to **** with people while theyíre trying to take pictures ď its there for a reason. OP has not provided the GREAT results proving that removing this glass will improve camera function, it will not. What will happen though, I guarantee, is dust falling directly on the lens, and scratches, directly on the lens, instead of the protective piece producing spots and lines throughout your image from there on out.
Have a goodnight. Sorry if I rubbed people the wrong way.
