If you have a phone with a raised camera, then I found the feet on the bottom of routers and cablemodems work pretty well! Comcast will never know it's missing.

I have managed to microcut the camera lens too, can't see the cuts without good lighting but I have.

Never done it on any of my devices. The lens is receded into the body anyway, so there's no real risk of marks or scratches.

Also, the Nilkin tempered glass screen protector comes with two little protectors for each of the camera lenses.

Thumbs up More for than just earwax

Daughter has an X+ and she did quite a number on the lens. So much, that all of her pictures taken came out ghostly...
I pulled out my handy drill, a cotton swab, some toothpaste mixed with a bit of water, and started polishing that sucker. Did that for about 4 minutes (being careful not to stay in one place too long) and it removed all of the micro scratches she had caused by putting her phone into her rear pocket
Why flash tomorrow what you can flash today??
