I am interested in changing from my z3c to Xperia X Performance or just X.
But I have some concerns about camera lenses. The last two xperia phones (Arc S and current Z3C) I had did have terrible lenses. Not glass, or gorilla glass or some equivalent so it would get scratched and damaged very fast. I had it replaced on my Z3C.
Wonder if anyone knows if its a different story this time? Thanks

Not sure what the lens or the protective glass is made of. However, I keep my Z3C in the back pocket all the time without taking any special care since about 1.5 years without any damage whatsoever... Certainly not a common issue you're having.

Well it's not that uncommon. There is a YouTube video were they test phone lenses to scratch resistance. Samsung, iPhone, LG i think, have it in glass. Sony have it made from plastic scratches very easily. And it's more like air or moisture trapped between the layers in the lense protection that causes problems. Just Google images z3 compact scratches and you will see it pretty common.
