Has anyone else developed blemishes on their HTC desire [Or other model] camera window in the rear cover?

While the glass itself isn't scratched, there seems to be funny patterns within the glass layers [as it isn't on the inside or outside of the glass] with a slight rainbow effect like soapy water was left to dry streaky.

I was hoping the glass had some kind of shipping plastic over it that could be peeled off but it doesn't seem to have.

Wonder if i can replace it as it does effect the quality of my photos?

I need to replace the backplate of mine due to a cracked camera cover. The glass lens seems to be fine though. Don't seem to see what you describe.

Anyone know where the cheapest place to get a desire back cover is?

I had this issue with mine, I looked on line and found others had the same issue. My photos were getting more and more cloudy.

You need to polish it out with a metal polish, I used neverdull. It took quite a bit of rubbing but its now as good as new.

Hope this helps

Are you speaking of the plastic cover or the glass lens itself under the cover?

I cleaned mine with Isopropyl alcohol, seems fine now. In the meantime I have my overheating rebooting problem back :(

The plastic cover on the outside, the quality was really bad until I fixed it up
