    A $500 Nikon DSLR flash is also covered with plastic. I wouldn't worry about it - I don't see that this would affect performance.

    Um, what camera flashes don't have a plastic cover? I'm pretty sure they're made from plastic so they can be easily molded to diffuse light at multiple angles.

    That news to me, since I hold the phone in my hand and can see and feel that it is glass. You can see for yourself

    Not really comparing apples to apples. The iPhone 8 flash is under the rear glass panel. The iPhone X isn’t. It’s built into the camera bulge.

    Oh, I am not saying that one is superior to other, plastic flash covers never gave me issues. Other poster asked what phones have glass cover and I gave response, and he does still denies that iPhone 8/8+ have glass cover. I never argued that is better or not. Flash cover material is the last thing that I would worry about. And actually I like iPhone X setup more since it has cleaner look with case one since you can get cutout just for camera module unlike iPhone 8/8+.
