I hear a lot of complaints about this "protruding camera lens" on the back of the phone. But, I actually think it looks pretty slick and adds a layer of sophistication to the product. The circle is even, feels nice, and adds a certain "look" to the design of the phone. It makes it look like an actual camera lens, and with how good the camera is, if the sticking out makes it how it is, then well, I think it's a totally fair compromise. It's hard to describe what it is exactly, but I think it adds something that makes it look good. It does with the gold, at least. I attached some pictures. It really doesn't look as bad as people have complained. Sure it wobbles without a case, but that's really the only *bad* thing about it.
