Any chance of getting a spare camera module? I have scratched the lens and my pictures are fuzzy.

Good question - How to get spare parts for the phone if needed. e.g. battery, screen or similar. Would be great by Jolla to add such stuff to the official webshop

I guess in my case breaking the glass/plastic cover of the lens and replacing it would be enough. Would just have to get the exact same size/form piece for replacement and glue. But maybe I'll still try some stronger chemical and try to just wipe it again, in case it's just grease.

No, it's not grease. I'll try to investigate where to find a glass part for it, the original part seems to be plastic.

I have been super careful with my Jolla, but the camera lens now has a few light scratches that make my images very blurred now.

Any ideas on polishing the scratches out, or a replacement camera module would be greatly received! I am going to glue a small ring to the other half to make the lens recessed, which will stop it scratching further when the phone is put flat on the table etc.

What i've done on my Jolla is stick a mildly protruding sticker cut-out around the lens openings so that even when the phone is lying rear down on a flat surface the lens are always held some mm above the surface to reduce any incidence of unwanted contact & scratches. In hindsight i'll say they should have made the rear phone cover with a slight depression or budge around the lens to give it some protection. Doesn't look so nice but has it's practical value.
