Default Improve the quality of photos replacing lens covers

First sorry for my English

I found a solution to the poor quality of the photos from the original lens covers.

Of cusualidad I realized that the lens covers original is the same size as the lens covers a Iphone4

Here the tests and installed the lens covers...

With the original:

The photo with your original lens is very strange, so poor quality and seems that your lens is dirty.

I never had so bad pictures has you have, nevertheless it's was a good workaround that you found that can improve the camera quality....
