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

Scratched camera lens, photo quality
My S5 camera quality has dropped significantly lately. The photos have become quite grainy, especially in mid and low light. I compared it to friend's S5 and you can see the difference right on the screen even without taking a photo. My camera lens is with scratches, friend's not. Can it be the reason ? If so, is it possible to get the scratches out somehow ? I have seen videos of scratch repair for HTC One M8 (http://youtu.be/xhhOcIRMfWc ). Can it work on S5 ? Any advice, any solution ?
