    just a sugerence micky, maybe you could ask people to take a picture with the phone with and without the flash to see if the quality is indeed affected.

    Ive had mine for less than a week and have rarely used the camera. Its already scratched:



    I'd hate to see the condition of it in a years time.

    Nokia should either replace that blue foam part with microfibre or a fine brush, or leave a gap for dust to roam free, or replace the plastic lens surface with something much more durable such as high quality scratch proof polycorbonate sheet (used in quality reading glasses).

    I have moved a few posts from this thread to the thread below.

    http://www.nokiausers.net/forum/noki...era-cover.html

    Please keep to only posting your photos showing damage in this thread here. Also state where your N97 was made please.

    I will be putting together another thread soon for photos taken with the N97's with scratched lens covers.

    Looks like it's affected mine too... thankfully not over the lens itself yet, but I imagine it's a matter of time.

    It's an N97-1 black made in Finland, bought in Yorkshire.

    Mine is getting worse each time I use my camera. Come on Nokia, are you seeing this? We know you are aware of this issue, but what are you going to do about it?



    These scratches seen above are quite deep too, you can actually feel them with your fingernail.

    N97-1 scratched camera screen

    mine is scratched and iv taken photos for you, this started after just 3 days of use and is now at 2 weeks I am taking to nokia service point tommorrow to send of for repair. (btw mine was made in finland)
    This is taken using the N97 in a mirror and as you can see it has not affected the camera but is well scratched at top and bottom runners and directly across the lens also many other smaller scratches that arnt really visable unless looking side on.

    seems I've joined the scratch club.

    took about 5 days to get one. and I've been extra double careful - what with knowing lots of people have suffered the same problem. For me this is a return for refund issue. The decent camera is the no1 reason to have the N97 over other competitive smartphones. I've only one scratch at the moment pic here but give it a few weeks and it will be covered in them and will start to impact photo quality. So unless theres a design mod to the hardware - no thanks nokia.

    last pic as its going to be going back soon, and vodafone are going to show it to nokia.. "our device management team are due to present these kind of issues with Nokia themselves and having a model with a genuine fault would be great evidence."




    oh yeah, its made in finland

    I have approved your post now "simcard". You may want to resize your image though.

    Im on my N97 right now, and have to scroll for ages to get from one end of the image to the other.

    here's my N97 white lens (made in China, but Malaysian local setting software: RM-505), it's a little scratch...but it shows how much it could take for the lens to scratch. (i've been using it for a month now....)



    think i would change this phone for a nokia e72....

    I'm not convinced the scratches are causing the white blur/haze in pics taken in low light with flash. I used a sharpie/permanent marker to black out a thin line on the LED flash between the flash and lens and now pics taken in low light are fine and without the white blur/hze on the left side. I already have a couple of scratches over the lens. I've documented this in the Nokia N97 thread, 'N97 Camera Lens Scratched? - Post your photos taken *WITH* your N97 here' but it is still awaiting moderator approval before being published.

    2 big scratches, this one in the pic below and one right beside it on the flash (can't see the one on the flash due to reflection). PS sorry about the quality, I only had a brutal webcam in work with me.
