    I bought the 4S at launch and put it straight into a case. Tonight I was cleaning my phone, and I noticed some light scratching all across the camera lens. Should I take it back within the 30 days?

    If it bothers u then take it in. They will probably swap out the backplate which takes like 2 minutes.

    I probably would because I'm OCD as hell about such things, though I can almost guarantee the scratches are superficial and don't effect your image quality at all.

    It takes quite a bit of damage to a lens to really start degrading picture quality.

    Thanks for the article. It was a very interesting read. I've decided to go ahead and take it back. I'm also pretty OCD when it comes to my electronics :\
