Stumbled on this video today.

Tried removing lens protection myself, really improved image quality A LOT!

Maybe there are some similar tricks to make HTC Desires camera even better?

nice find, it certainly improves quality, depending on how abused your camera cover is :P

It has protection for a reason.

A "protection" that needs another protection to work...

Removed and it doesn't seem that this "protection" did anything at all besides f*cking up photos and videos..

Tried myself, and you are totally right, quality is much better.

Would this not cause a problem by bits and things going inside thru the hole?

Nope, it's even better because it's hard to touch camera lenses or dirt to come through tiny hole lite that.

Still, I prefer to leave it on and just remove the battery cover when i want to take a good picture.

A while ago I read somewhere that you could greatly improve your photographs by removing the small plastic lens cover on your Desire (as suggested above) and replacing it with a cut-out from a photographer's lens filter - these can be really cheap (less than 5 for a 77mm diameter UV filter) and can be cut into several lens-cover-sized pieces. If you get a scratch, you just replace it.

It could also do some interesting things for your photographs, especially if you experimented with different filter effects - polarising, UV, ND etc... could be good fun if you're feeling artistic.
