    Hey,

    So I bought this Nokia 920 about 2 months ago, and I'm completely satisfied with it, except for this one part:

    Even though I'm trying to prevent it from being in dusty areas, it somehow managed to catch all the dust from entire universe under its lens. What surprises me more that the front camera is completely ok, not a single speck of dust, but the main one is completely dirty after less than 2 months of usage.

    Is there any tricky way to get rid of the dust from the rear camera? I saw some assemble disassemble video on youtube, but it looks very complicated and I'm afraid I won't be able to perform that myself without damaging the phone

    It is pretty straight forward to remove the back cover, clean the glass lens and put it back together.

    Yeah but as I saw here:

    He's using some sort of special tool to remove the cover. I'm afraid to damage it with something amateur-ish

    That is really odd as the Lumia 920, is known to get dust in it's front facing camera, but the back one is usually fine.
    If you can, just take it to a Nokia care point and they can do it for you. It happened to me and they cleaned it out for me for free in a few hours.

    Hope that helps!

    Mhm, closest Nokia care point is more than 50 kilemeters away and they even bill 30$ for any sort of work on 9xx, +50% for express 'repair' (which I'd have to pay if I don't want to travel twice)

    I guess i'll take my chances with my butter fingers, keep fingers crossed
