Is there anyone here besides me having these tiny scratches on camera lens? i really doubt that claim of LG that the camera lens is protected with sapphire glass. my phone is totally scratchless even after 2 months of use without any protector, but only the camera lens has got the scratches which is funny as well as annoying or me. though it doesnt make any affect on the camera quality after all but still its so confusing for me that why is it having scratches.

Please see the picture and suggest the way out to remove these scratches or what would be the reason behind them, i have used my set with utmost care.

Oooh, those are serious scratches. Did you run an angle grinder on that? I have one thin scratch with normal use after 6 months

Boy those are some scratches indeed. Can it be it's due to sand or something?
For 6 months i have spotless glass on the camera.

i have found a better way, the picture quality of my phone was not runied till now, i have applied a transparent sticker on the camera lens and the quality is more or less the same. xD its protected now means the scratches wont increase in number, but still...LG whats this :S

It's a little late for this advice now, but a case would have prevented those. The camera is not quite flush with the back, but pretty close. Setting the phone down on the back or having it slide up against anything abrasive could account for scratches like that. Even being in your pocket can cause that kind of stuff. The lens on my last phone rendered the whole camera useless because of the scratches and that lens never saw anything but the inside of my pocket or open air. Unless you have microfiber lined pockets then you can't really say they aren't scratching your lens. Those don't look like normal pocket scratches though. They almost look like someone tried wiping fingerprints off the lens with something that was too coarse. Maybe a zipper hit it or something like that. Anyway, a case would set the lens a little deeper and away from things that could hurt it. I'm thinking that going forward if you want to prevent more damage then you should look into something like that.
