nope it doesn't. I'm not worried because I read into lens scratches and basically they mean nothing. just incredibly annoying that this phone is babied and it's the first phone I've ever owned in like 10 years with a scratched camera lens.
anyway, I've come to this realization for the g2 camera (sorry but it's a copy and paste from a PM i sent)
we need to turn noise reduction to a minimum, or off, on the g2 to get pictures to look good. I've done some tests, and when you're at a very low iso in a dark room with flash on, it over exposes, i guess it keeps the shutter open longer with flash to get more light since it's a low iso.. thing is, at that low iso, noise reduction is practically off. things are sharp, but a bit noisy.. however to me it looks much better. at iso 400, noise reduction begins to kick in and you see the awful soft blurriness coming about.
in general, low iso takes a better picture obviously, but it also seems like noise reduction is almost non existent at those isos. maybe we can somehow apply that to iso 400 and above.
same goes for video too.. seems like there's noise reduction all over the video, even if a low exposure, because things are so much softer and blurier than on the s4
