I bought the HTC One M8 on launch day and have taken very good care of it since. Recently, the back camera has been taking very blurry pictures. The front camera is fine though. The lens is not cracked or scratched at all. I've wiped the lens down very good, but it doesn't help (both main and duo lens). Anyone else have this problem?

Are you sure it's not scratched? I had to remove the film that was on the camera as I had some scratches and noticed a degraded picture. Everything is great now. You can Google around for ways to remove the film on the camera.

Can try the old toothpaste trick. Get some toothpaste on a Q-Tip and rub it on the lens a bit. Then clean it off. Concept of waxing a car kind of. Worked on all phones I've had in the past.

The blurriness was due to scratches on the screen after all. I used some car polish to buff it out, now the pics are better than ever.
