Are you sure you were at the same distance?
And what about the focus point? It seems a bit different between the 2 pics.....

did you stick a 'lense protector' on the cover's lense screen? like if you stuck on a full body protector like invisibleSHIELD there'll be a piece for the lense cover too.

Or, did you forget to peel off the original one? :p

the "lens" that is part of the back cover is obviously not optically neutral. Pretty lame if you ask me.


Without the back cover, the Diamond takes decent pictures, still slow on focusing and shutter release(you should see the Samsung F480, this little fellow shoots pictures almost like a normal digital cam) but pretty good for a 3.2 MP cam.

WITH back cover however, the pictures look like crap to me. Sometimes it looks like if the pictures have been taken through light fog and I can clean the lens cover as much as I want(not easy, tiny little bastard), after some time, the lens gets dirty/whatever again. Horrible, HTC definetely needs to find a better solution.

look i didnt try it but i think if we remove it the camera quality will increase

the htc p3600 and the touch dual doesnt have mirror for camera

Yes, of course the quality will increase, when a cheap plastic cover is removed :) But hmm, my Diamond is 2 days old, and I don't want to already destroy a part of the cover :p

we need to clean it to get better quality

But we can't clean the mirror everytime we just wanna take a picture. That's not a good way?

well ideally you should or you should remember not to put you fingers on the lens (not an easy task given the camera position i know) but lets be fair here, i mean its not as if you would take your stand alone digital camera, smear you greasy hands over the lens all day (+ let dust collect on it) and then expect it to take perfect pics...

be practical, if you remove the case screen for long you are gonna end up with scratches on the actual camera lens! and that's not easily replaceable now is it (not like the back cover...) lol

What we need is a back cover with a piece of glass in place of the piece of plastic which covers the lense.

This seems like the only solution to me.

Its because the plastic isnt very durable, it does mist up the photos. If you look on coolsmartphone.com ive also took some pictures and they looked alot better without the back plastic cover on.

I just hope someone somewhere is reading this as i would pay for a back cover with glass instead of plastic lense cover.

The pictures are alot sharper and arent misty without the cover on.

white balance

Granted the backcover lens protector doesn't do justice to this phone. Adjusting the white balance does for improvement (say the lighhtbulb mode) I find. Again the camera does let this phone down, compared to others of similar spec. Can a software tweak solve the lag in motion when shooting in video mode at all? Is it as a 'simple' case as that I wonder!?
