Question [Q] crooked camera lens?

Am u just being picky or does it look like my camera lens is crooked? Seeing as how i basically paid retail, and within the worry free gurantee i could return it. Just wanted to check withthe community before doing so.

Mine looks crooked too, but it looks crooked differently from different angles. I think what's happening is a shadow is being cast that's making it look crooked. Could just be an optical illusion. You could always stop by Verizon and compare the floor model.

I received two N3 today and the one I got from Best Buy, the camera lens is crooked compared to the one from Verizon..

Does your camera take a while to auto focus? (Not sure if it's related to being crooked. Can't test the other N3, as it's already packaged ready to be shipped to its new owner)

I'm going to exchange it tomorrow and check it out prior to completing the swap @ BB..

I have a week old note 3 and noticed this. The camera assembly is slightly crooked/skewed to the right. Seems like a manufacturing fault, i dont think the lens itself is crooked, just the glass housing covering the lens is not glued in accurately. Camera works fine though. I checked a couple of note 3s around my workplace and almost all seem to have this defect. Cant decide whether this is a big enough issue to replace by phone or not

There is now a replacement back housing available on etradesupply for our phone.. I have since lost my note 3 and gotten a replacement from asurion and that one does not have a crooked lens..

I have a att note3 and noticed mine is crooked just a little bit. Sometimes the angle of the shadow make it look more crooked than it really is. I'm not that worried about mine though.
