I know there are a few threads on this already, but most seem to be addressing new phones that just happen to have one or two small specks on the underside of the camera lens. However, I would like to know if there other people who are seeing LOTS of dust/specks accumulating under or beneath the lens over time? I am seeing this on my iphone 5 and I don't do anything weird with it. I usually keep it in my jeans or front shirt pocket, which of course have lint sometimes, but I figured the camera should be sealed and perhaps nitrogen filled or something to prevent condensation. I use one of those snap-on cases that just covers the back and sides of the phone. Primarily just to provide a little added mechanical protection, but it's not a hermetically sealed case and in my opinion shouldn't need to be for 'normal' use in an office type setting. My old blackberry had this same problem, but it was a blackberry and the camera was obviously not sealed to the environment. I expected more from Apple though, an iPhone isn't a cheap device! And yes, it interferes with images quality. The lens isn't in the image plane, but if light hits it just right you'll get 'orbs' in the image coming from the illuminated dust particles. This happens on my phone quite often and is a darn shame since the camera would otherwise be pretty good. What's up with this apparently significant design oversight? Didn't they expect a cell phone to encounter pocket lint, or is it expected to live out its life on a golden pedestal?
